A few years ago I dyed (chemical dye) this fabric, to me it took on a frosty winter look. I pieced it with a "frosted window" in mind. Not knowing how to quilt it I sent it to the expert Deb http://akquilter1.blogspot.com in Alaska to quilt it for me. I wanted it to look like your looking through frosted windows. I received it back before Christmas and was blown away by the quilting.
It was snowing so beautifully yesterday I photographed it on our porch by my winter greens.
A close up of the middle with a beautiful winter tree, icy grasses behind it and ice crystals along the edge of the window. And how she thought of the "rays" on the ground I don't know but I love it.
And look at her boarder design and corner square.
The sides with her hand designed snowflakes and swirling snow designs.
Thank you Deb, your the best!
This is how my quilt is progressing (pinned to a wall in my studio). When I started it I really didn't know what I was going to record but as the seasons came and being such a sky watcher it seems I'm recording a lot of different moons and one fiery sun for Summer Solstice. I'm sure I would be recording a lot more if there wasn't sooo much cloud cover on this side of Lake Michigan. The blank spots will be pieced blocks.
Back in November when I was with my girlfriends on our quilt retreat I pieced a large quilt using this fabric (shown on my November blog). All the tiny left over scraps I bagged up and gave to Mary for her own use. A few weeks ago she presented this to me, she took my scraps and made this cute little miniature of my large quilt for me. Miniature quilts are so precious, thank you Mary, I love it.
