Split Decision

I quilted one of my projects yesterday, this small Split Decision lap quilt. One more thing semi done. I will have to figure out something for the binding, maybe a scrappy binding out of a bunch of my leftovers.

I also have 10 of my 9-patch blocks in process and have been cutting up the UFO border into squares that will become part of the backing.

All pre-hurricane errands have been run, all cars gassed up, food in the cabinet and outdoor furniture securred. Hope that being prepared will make it NOT be a very big issue here.

The last hurricane (my first) that hit this area was I think in 2002. Our neighborhood at the time had lots of downed trees, water in lots of basements and we were without power for 5 1/2 days, not a fun time since cooking was electric and we had a well so no power meant no water either. My husband thinks I am being a worry wart about this storm but I would rather be that than unprepared.

My good wishes go out to everyone in North Carolina (my step daughter included) where they expect the worse damage.

love the quilt.
Hope Ed is right and your over reacting but I am watching the weather channel and I think you were smart.
Be safe.
