Winter is Here!

And with a vengeance, with lots of snow and freezing rain. Yesterday was a good day to stay indoors and just sew and stay warm and not venture anywhere with the car.
I’m getting closer to assembling my Winter quilt. Just a bit more on the bottom section and then the sides can be sewn together.
When I first started this quilt, the colour choice became evident after going through all my winter fabrics. There was a lot of blues with snowflakes on them. I’m amazed how over the years, I seem to have accumulated a lot of this colour fabric and how perfect they are for this quilt. Snowflakes are the theme, and even the red fabric in the house has some printed on it.
I'm trying to finish the top as soon as possible .... there are Xmas gifts to make and must make time to do those up!
Have a great day!
