Winter Glory



Hi there!  Welcome to anyone who has arrived from SewCalGal's Christmas Quilt Show.  I've been trying to decide what quilt to show, and the ones I think of first are ones that I made for swaps, and don't have any more.  They are still some of my fave's so I'm going to share one of them.  I hope you enjoy it, and please don't forget to go check out the Christmas and Winter quilts that are linked up over at SewCalGal's!

I've gone back a few years for this one (see earlier post here), but it is still one of my favourite little winter quilts that I've made.

It was made for a swap hosted by Michelle at the Quilting Gallery.  The theme was Winter Time Minis.  I used my own hand dyed fabric and had fun playing with free-form curved piecing and sparkly free motion quilting.

I still intend on making something similar for us - maybe this year???

Happy quilting!
