Lauren and I putting up a window quilt

Lauren and I putting up a window quilt

I spent my Christmas break sewing insulated window quilts.

The saga of the window quilts is long, and my teammates are completely sick of it: back in early November, I bought a ton of flannel and heat-reflective batting to assemble window quilts for our house. Then, after Lake Tahoe, I tried to sew them. But I really struggled with Anna’s sewing machine so progress was extremely slow and, really, pretty nonexistent.

I then decided that I should bring the material home and sew it on my mother’s sewing machine. Problem: there wasn’t room in the car going to Presque Isle, with four skiers and all their belongings for a race weekend and a week at home. We crammed them in anyway, to the extent that Lauren and I couldn’t see each other from opposite sides of the back seat. Then, there wasn’t room in the Ford Sayre bus to get back to Hanover, so I had to send them separately with some parents and pick them up in Hanover Center later in the week.

Finally, I spent quite a few hours sewing, and my parents thought I was nuts. The payoff, though: Lauren helped me put them up on the eight huge windows in the living room today, so hopefully we’ll be a little toastier and our heating bill will go down!
