I never had any desire to make a basket quilt until I saw this one displayed at a booth and I bought the pattern right away. I don't remember how long ago it was, but it took me a while to start making it. I am very happy with it. Monday night I took it to my guild meeting for show and tell and had very positive comments!
Sunday morning we were home and our next door neighbor came over to tell us that the tranformer behind our two houses was on fire! We had a storm during the night and our electricity had been off for several hours, but came on about 8:30. Then it went off again about 10:30 and that's when the neighbor came over. If you look closely, you can see the yellow/orange flame on the top part.
The fire department came out, but they didn't do anything
You can see a little yellow on this picture.
The fire department leaving. You might be able to see that it had been raining. We got quite a bit, which was wonderful! It's raining again this morning.
Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post! It means a lot to me.
