Quiltcon Charity Quilt: Improv with Intent

Nine of us have carpooled together to PMQG meetings for several years and decided to make a charity quilt for Quiltcon.  It has been a pretty intense undertaking.  Back in September, we decided to each make wonky stars with the colors dictated by Quiltcon and turn them in at the October meeting.  We carpooled to two PMQG Sew Days and one additional day at Annie’s home to create the top.

Now it’s at Geri’s home for the quilting.

Last weekend, Kevin and I spent a very cold night at Trillium Lake.  It was 5 degrees with a windchill of -7 and probably one of the coldest nights we’ve spent in our tent.

This is where I peeled some of my lip off when it froze to a part on the stove that requires a bit of moisture.

We went for a walk to warm our fingers and toes.

    You guys are crazy!!! Hope your lip recovered…a friend of mine and I are working on a wonky star “Quilt of Valor” (not for presentation) for a friend of ours deployed in Afghanistan. I hope to go to QuiltCon East out here next year. Stay warm and dry!!!

    Ripping your lip off? Didn’t you ever watch “A Christmas Story” where Flick gets his tongue stuck to the flag pole? LOL Sorry, it made me giggle a little. Hope you don’t have permanent damage! Love you! Patti
