Let it Snow!

I have been raking leaves, cleaning out my garden and getting my yard ready for winter.  Lovely fall weather we had had too!  This morning, I had my coffee on the deck at 66 degrees.  Then I went down to the studio and played in the snow!!

I have had this quilt on the back burner for a client of mine for several months.  She told me there was no hurry, but I decided to get it done for her before winter set in and will send it off tomorrow so she can get it bound.

I had so much fun quilting all these different blocks, I hated for it to end.





 Different quilt patterns in each of the sky backgrounds...here I tried to convey a lazy, languid sky.

...this block needed a wind-blowing-in-my face-hope-I-don't-spill-my-cocoa sky.



This fisherman block was where I tried something new.  I marked a random off-center point on his inner shoulder and pivoted my ruler on that point at 1/2 increments all around the block.  I love this look and will use it again sometime.
Here is a close up of the backing--a frosty, glittery fabric with snowflakes swirls.

How fun that must have been. I love all the different fills. The one that radiates from the center is awesome. I adore the checkerboard fill. And the snowflakes with the loops was super cute. Oh heck, I just loved them all!!! What a treasure this will for many Winter's to come.
