Winter Quilts

I was swapping out quilts in my kitchen and decided to put up the snowman quilt I made a couple of years ago. It is a combination of snowball and nine-patch blocks. I wish you could see the quilting on this. Sue, who did the quilting used a micro-stiple around the actual snowmen. It makes them pop from the fabric. Very fun! I decided it was time to stop being in denial that we have more cold months here in Michigan than warm months. It's time to make a new winter quilt. Anne over at Bunny Hill Designs has a free pattern of the month called "Snowbound" which makes an adorable quilt. She already has the first block done so stop over there to take a look. I'm up for the Snowbound challenge. Heading back into denial now...

Stay warm & toasty!


  1. Oh Renee, what a lovely quilt! The colors are so happy ~ what better to cheer up these long winter days.

    I've seen the Snowbound quilt. I sure wish I knew how to applique a bit better and I would give it a try. Instead, I've just ordered all the fabric to create a little chick quilt. Nice simple shapes for a beginner like me. But its colorful & happy to so it should be a fun project.

    So glad you enjoyed the rolls. Aren't they just so pretty? Almost makes you want to just leave them in a basket on the table for pretty. LOL

    Blessings, Lea

  2. It's so pretty. I love it. Can you help me? On my blog at the top I have instructions on how to make a snuggie, but it's not step by step. can you interpret it step by step for me wit more photos? =) I'm a beginner sewer and I really want to make it. Please!
