I made this quilt (named Cover Girl) using a technique called paper piecing. I loved doing it! The little girl who sleeps under this quilt will be under a blanket infused with joy. And if she experiences weather like we've been having, she'll need much more than this to keep warm.
It hasn't been above freezing for days and they forecast a couple more days like that. It's 7 degrees right now with a wind chill of -2. It really confuses Oreo, who repeatedly asks to go outside and then turns right around and comes back in as if to say, "What was I thinking?" The cold has made Ben's nose bleed -- it's just too cold to breathe. The schools have been closed for two days and the roads are still covered with blowing snow. There's not much of it, a couple of inches, but it keeps moving around.
