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.
