It seems my quilt was a weather forecast!

Hello out there from Winnipeg, a place where the snow is actually as described above, and we're in the deep freeze temperature-wise. My winter quilt is completed and up on the wall and I'm just a bit sorry it's all done. I had lots of fun working on it, and I really liked quilting those freehand fans. I'm going to quilt them into my next project too. Thanks Tonya for hosting the class and being so gracious with your comments. I'm having fun with making letters, and I think I'm developing a style or a font. And for the rest of you, there's lots of winter left in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, so if your project is still in progress, you've got at least three months more by my calendar.

I'm off to a quilting retreat at the end of the month, and I'm taking this quilt for show and tell and I'm going to direct everyone over to this blog so they can see how great you're all doing.
FYI: this quilt is about 37 inches wide by 28 or so and fits nicely on the wall above my fireplace./Brenda

your quilt turned out wonderfully Brenda. I particularly like the effect of the fabric you chose for the sky with the moon

It's sooo beautiful. The trees, the fabrics, the whole composition !
And could you please send us some snow ? I can mail you the directions :-))

That's a great quilt! I love the moon and the simple design of the whole thing.. it just speaks of deep, crisp, even snow in its design as well as the words. I'm just south of you and will be sharing in the deep freeze. I rather like that ours is coming over the weekend, when I can stay home where it's cozy and we can light a fire in the fireplace.

wow, brenda, it's fantastic. I love your quilt. feels so peaceful and a bit mysterious. I bet your next project is going to be a knock out too - I hope you'll keep in touch so we can see.

The words are from one of my "special" Xmas carols in my childhood. I loved it because King Wenceslas was a complete stranger to me!
Glad you used it, and so appropriate for where you live. How big is it?

Love your finish ...... all our snow is gone now ..... and we're not asking for you to send some our way! Jeepers, we'll have to call out the army and Mike Mercer would have to do a squel to "Snow in Toronto". LOL
