Four Seasons Quilt Swap -- Winter
If you are looking for a photo of what I'm making for this swap it's not here. This little quilt to the left is the inspiration for my swap piece. This quilt is a preprinted panel from the early 90's (I think). I just layered it and quilted it up. I am doing something that represents Colorado and the Rocky Mountains in the winter. I told you didn't I that the Winter quilt is all ready to baste? I think I'm going to hand quilt it. I hope my swap partner doesn't mind 'cause I haven't hand quilted in a long, long time and I'm a bit rusty at it. But the little winter quilt is calling for it.
Update 12/28/07. Approximate size of pictured quilt is:
Block: 3"x3" with the tree 2.75"tall x 2.5" wide
Green border: .25"
Red border: 1.5"
It snowed all day again. CarGuy and I had several rented DVDs so I pulled out a bit of quilting and spent the afternoon watching Bruce Willis. Personally, I would have preferred watching Bing Crosby and White Christmas. I have it on Tivo and have not had a chance to watch it. I think tonight we will be in the company of Nicolas Cage.
