A Frosty Winter Morning!




Wow, it was cold last night and we woke up to a huge frost. Brrrrr! I love our cosy woodburning stove during the winter months. Perfect weather on a Saturday morning to eat a breakie of hot oatmeal, read the newspaper and do some sewing. Yesterday I finished sewing the Za Za quilt together, but unfortunately my photo is so dark due to the winter lighting here. It's hard for me to show what the quilt really looks like. Now I need to decide what color I will use for the border... Still not sure. Any opinions?

My next project is going to be using a Miss Rossie pattern called Midwinter. This will be my first time using one of her patterns, so I am quite excited to try. I will be using a fat quarter bundle from last year's Christmas release called Vintage Holiday. I haven't seen too many people use this fabric line and I am quite surprised because I really like it a lot. I think a lot of people used the Roman Holiday line as a favorite last year. I like that one too:)

Wow - that is great. You are so quick at whipping out these quilt tops. I quite like it without a border actually. Love the new fabrics too - I have a couple of those.

Love the quilt. Did you make your own block pattern because it's awesome. Your quilt could stand alone without a border.

What a pretty top! I like the Christmas prints, too.

Love the way the Za Za quilt looks. I have looked at this fabric a couple of times and can not decide if I like it or not :)

What a great quilt! I love the way that pattern really shows the fabric. You are going to love Miss Rosie's patterns she does a great job. And that was one of my favorite Christmas fabrics last year...I can't wait to see it in that pattern!

Dear Michigander Friend, I'm concerned about you since we've not seen a blog entry in weeks.
I hope all is well.
