Hazards everywhere and the McQuilts

Last Friday when I went walking down at the towpath there was a paving crew. They had nothing barricaded off and people just passed threw the small section where they were working. On my way back I crossed from one side of the path to the other and almost walked into this.


That is a lit blow tourch sitting right next to the path! The flame doesn't show - it was very blue. There was no one watching it, no barricades, no nothing! Talk about an accident waiting to happen! I made several phone calls and finally got a hold of someone at the metro parks to come down and supervise the paving crew. The one crew member I did see and express my concern for the danger just looked at me and smiled. After I bitched enough he finally turned it off. I now have OSHA's 800 number in my phone and next time I will just call them. I am sure they would love to come and discuss the asphalt company's safety procedures!

I sewed together the first of many McQuilts as I am calling them. After I layed the sewn rows out I realized I am one row short. No problem I have plenty of patches!

I got two more McQuilts laid out on the design wall.



Here is the original pile of patches


and after using 138 patches the pile doesn't look much smaller!

WOW! It is amazing they didn't start a fire or something. Crazy, they should be disciplined by OSHA.

Love the Ziggy McQuilts! Love that name, McQuilts!
