Not here in WI.....thank goodness!
Just in fabric.

I completely changed directions on the setting for
my embroidered "
Snowbound" blocks.

My inspiration came from
LMS's Birdie BOM.
Hmm, I just happen to have 2 charm packs of
Mary En
gelbreit's The Caroler.

Love the bright colors with the white.
I debated whether or not to use the black prints.
I'm so gla
d I did.

I had enough fabric left to add a piano key border.
Now to get it quilted by Christmas.

Look at this
spectacular quilt my customer Sharon pieced.
You know how I love 1930's reproduction prints!

The pattern was in the Spring/Summer 2008 issue of
Quilt Sampler magazine.
A million half square triangles.

Love those wide open s
paces for quilting!

The back can be used as a whole cloth.

Wool batting really show
s the quilting details.

Well, that's my life up to the moment.
Rainy and yucky outsid
Guess I'll just have to stay inside
and play with fabric.
And work on customer quilts.
Pretty quiet here without the grandbabies.

Keep those machines humming.


  1. Your bright "Caroler" fabrics are perfect with the Snowbound blocks. Very sweet quilt.

    The other is drop dead gorgeous.
