snow day and a quilt

It’s looking more like January at the cottage today.


Schools are closed and the spouse is working from home so it’s a full house. In between knocking down icicles and sledding I caught a few shots of the quilt I finished last night.


It’s been a year in the making. It’s made from the Half Square Triangle Block of the Month that Jeni shared on her blog last year.


Most of the fabrics I used are from Moda’s etchings line by 3 sisters.

There is also good selection from Bunny Hill’s Putting on the Ritz along with some bits from my stash including some French General and some repro prints. It’s bound with a cursive print from etchings.

Thankfully the wind didn’t blow the quilt away, but it tried.
