Since the weather didn't seem too crazy, I figured I would cut out some blocks and be ready to sew when the power came back on.
Getting things prepared and ready to sew is a big part of quilting as every quilter knows. But I didn't realize our power would be out for 18 hours! We made the best of it by barbecuing the dinner we were going to cook on the stove and visiting with family over our camp lanterns.
So it wasn't until Monday afternoon that I was finally able to sit down and start catching up on my Splendid Sampler blocks. I love this block by Natalia that looks so bold and modern in the pattern picture and yet is a very sweet block in my Fig Tree scraps.
