The Maine quilt
In October I shared the beginnings of this quilt and you can read all about the fabrics there. The short story is that I sunprinted them while we were on vacation Maine. I set aside this project to work on at sewing days with my quilting club. I missed November when I got the plague (a cold) so i was very excited to get started on it this weekend. Over two days of sewing I got it half done! If I had talked a little less I would have gotten more accomplished but I'm really happy with this and I will be able to finish it next month.
I am thrilled with how it's looking. I really like the mix of colors and the balance of sharp prints and more muted prints.
While we were sewing Friday it started snowing. It was a very unusual early snow but a perfect snow because it was too warm to stick to the roads.
I took these Friday afternoon after I got home from sewing. We actually got several inches of snow but it didn't prevent me from going back to sewing on Saturday! I think this is the first time that it's snowed while I had the Christmas decorations up.
This is the little guest house that we rent out on Airbnb. It was cool to have guests coming Friday night so they could see the place in the snow.
But forget the houses, this is the best view!
It's pretty much all melted now which is exactly the way that I like my snow. It was just enough to inspire me to put up the Christmas trees and I'll share those photos this weekend.

My daughter has a friend at (high) school who is an exchange student from Australia, where they go to the beach on Christmas Day. Her one wish was to see snow before leaving on January 5th. Now that she's seen the white stuff, we can be done now.

I also really like it when the snow leaves before it becomes a dirty mess.

I like the snow to be a light flurry and only stick to trees and bushes. So as you can guess, I didn't care for the snow we got on Friday -and Saturday.

That is definitely a Christmas card scene! We haven't gotten quite that much snow yet. Some predicted on Wednesday. Our roads were nice and warm when we got about an inch yesterday so only the grass is barely covered.

The house looks so pretty all decorated and with the snow. My sister lives an hour west of Atlanta and she got 13" of snow last weekend. They lost power twice for hours and hours too. It is snowing here today, but nothing much to get excited about.

I'm impressed that those are all sun printed fabrics! They look great. And how pretty to have just the right amount of snow so close to Christmas :)

Looks lovely and Cmas-cardy. The apple core piece, at a quick glance, looks quite Hawaiian.

I like this quilt more together than pieces apart. This always encourages me to cut fabric that I think is too beautiful to cut---it almost always looks even better when put back together with other beautiful pieces.

Your house looks so pretty against the snow (not that I love snow!!). This quilt reminds me of being in the forest.
