A9 Cabin Fever

The date on this picture is October 9th. I thought I had started it months and months ago - so I think all in all the fact that it is finished is pretty good.

I took this block to Seattle to work on while Jim attended his fisheries conference. I quite often take my Dear Jane blocks with me - I find the hotel ironing boards come in quite handy - and it is nice that I don't have to bring my own ironing board along.

I actually worked on the block quite a bit in Seattle - sometimes the blocks come along for a ride and never make it out of the bag!

And here is the finished block.

Cabin Fever.

Cabin Fever -- thats a good name for this block that I just finished while living through the most snowfall in the history of Vancouver!

I am still slowly but surely plodding away at my quilt. This one had many, many pieces - something like 45 or so. I am glad this one is finished. I started one with a few less pieces -- M12. Just a few little short seams - so hopefully it will be done quickly. Maybe I should do a triangle. I haven't done any of those yet.

Happy New Year. Here's to a productive and fruitful 2009. One year to Olympics!
