Frankenstorm DWM

Hope this finds all the East coast quilters safe, even if they are in the dark.  It’s Design Wall Monday so be sure to hop over to Judy’s DWM post here.  I went to scrap club on Saturday and worked on putting together the blocks from a scrap project from last year.  I’m “webbing” the top ala Bonnie Hunter so you can see I’m more than half way done.  This is a horrible picture, btw, it looks much better in person.

I have DWM’s to thank for a wonderful meet up with AnnieO of Annie’s Quilt Orts.  She was in St Louis visiting her sister and emailed to see if I wanted to meet at a quilt shop.  YES!!  I suggested Helen’s Hen House, Jackman’s Farbics or The Quilted Fox.  The Quilted Fox was closest to me so we met up Friday afternoon.  What a wonderful, fun person Annie is!  We talked so much we hardly had to time shop….and we continued sharing over lunch.  It was so much fun…check out Annie’s post here!  Lucky Annie (center below) was staying right next door to the Hen House and she managed to do some damage there 🙂

Kathy mentioned that Annie is published….come to find out she made a four letter word for Tonya Ricucci, same as I did and both our words are on the cover of Tonya’s book, Word Play Quilts.  Annie’s is Soar and mine is Glee.

I did get one replacement block for the Civil War BOTW finished.  Here’s the original that appeared as a dead spot when I laid all the blocks out:

And the replacement with a little more going on:

I did manage do buy two half yards at The Quilted Fox and snagged a couple of Kona remnants (brown and wine) at Jo Ann’s…..

……..so there is a little change in the stash but look, I finished a backing for my log cabin scrap quilt!
