DAY ONE – WINTER LOVE
A year ago, Mr Gorgeous and I went to Wyoming on a work trip for him. While he was working, I went exploring around the Flaming Gorge. It was amazingly beautiful!!!
When I got back from my little road trip, I decided to design and hand sew a mini quilt.
I was swayed by the winter all around me…
And I wrote this in the middle block to embroider:
Just a kind word…we can do that, can’t we?
The snow globe pattern is from Aneela Hoey’s Little Stitches book.
It took me a year, but I got it all done. Completely hand pieced and handquilted…
Do you love winter?
I don’t think I could actually live in snow, but an occasional trip up north is kinda fun! Especially when it is so beautiful.
To make this mini quilt, take 12 – 4″ low volume squares and 24 – 2″ squares and sew those squares onto the opposite corners. For the middle, I used 4 – 4″ white squares and 4 – 2″ low volume corner squares.
If you are interested in the text embroidery pattern, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This mini quilt is for sale in my SHOP right HERE!! Happy Shopping!!!
