{ A Winter Quilt - A Gathering of Snowmen }

It's back from the quilter, bound, washed and being used.
I loved having snow on the ground for photos.

The pattern is a freebie from Moda Bake Shop called
Charming Stars
I'll be making this pattern again!
It finished at 68x68
The fabric is Snowman Gatherings 2 by Primitive Gatherings

{ Charming Stars }

Since the new year began, I've made two 38x52 baby plus quilts.

Shame on me for not taking photos of the them but they are identical to these quilts made previously. I was really lucky to have enough leftover fabric from the earlier projects to make two more. 
I even had enough coordinating backing fabric. {High five}

I also completed the Charming Stars quilt top.  The pattern is a freebie at Moda Bake Shop. It uses three charm packs and the blocks are a breeze to make. This pattern would make a great baby boy quilt (less blocks) or a QOV quilt with some red, white and blue fabric.

The fabric is Snowman Gatherings II by Primitive Gatherings.
After I took these photos I added two more borders, pieced the backing, and boxed it up for its trip to Utah for quilting.
When she gets back, I'll take more photos.

{ Manly Log Cabin -is there any other kind? }

This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my husband. 
Yeah, right.
As soon as the final stitch was in the binding, it was in the wash and dryer. 
While it was still warm, I presented him with an early Christmas gift. 
He seemed very pleased, which makes me happy.

Fabric: Miniature Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda
Batting: Warm and White 100% Cotton
Backing: Robert Kaufman Flannel

I may be using flannel backings more often. It really makes for a cozy quilt.
I just have to add the label and I'll 100% complete.

{ I Have Quilter's ADD }

I'm really wondering if this condition exists.
Just a two days ago I picked fabric for my next quilt project, 
Sweet Marie by Woodberry Way.
I put a photo up on Instagram showing the pretty 
Vintage Picnic fabric and the pattern.
I even went so far as to iron all my fat quarters in preparation for 
cutting on my next free evening.

Then by last night ,I decided this is a very springy collection of fabrics and since the winter is coming I need to make a winter quilt.

Oh look! I have the perfect alternative. Snowman Gatherings II by Primitive Gatherings.

As of now, this is my next project. I'm going to get started right away so I don't change my mind again.

I loved every moment of making this quilt. 
The pattern is well written and very easy to follow.

I chose to make the quilt with the same fabric Elizabeth Hartman used.
Why mess with perfect.

{ Three Years and the Blogger's Quilt Festival-Fall 2016 }

That's how long this UFO has been hanging around. It was all cut out but has spent the better part of three years in a project box. Why? I'm not sure. It may have had something to do with the 780 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" red squares that needed to be sewn on to 195 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles.

Actually, it had everything to do with that. 
The original post can be found HERE
