A change in the weather
Well it isn't the inch to an inch and a half that they predicted, but we did get a little snow. This is the view out of my kitchen window - the chickens guard my bird feeders. It is a great day to stay inside and that is just what I'm doing. I've already made a pan of lasagna so all I have to do is pop it in the oven for dinner. And I'm cozy under a quilt doing a bit of knitting.
Earlier in the week I was able to get some pictures of my Charming Cheddar Stars quilt on the grass in the backyard. This is a Moda Bake Shop pattern. I
used the Rooftop Garden collection of fabrics from Moda and I'd like to make this pattern again some time.
Again I am so pleased with the quilting that Cass Plott did on this one. I let her pick the pattern. My standard instructions are pick some thing pretty and use a variegated thread and I love being surprised when I get it back.
It has such great texture after it has been laundered. I love that it adds an extra layer of design to the quilt.
And just so you can see that it is a very cozy quilt here is Big Dude testing it out.
I think it has proven nap worthy.
So if there is snow where you are, I hope you can stay inside all warm and cozy.
Have a great weekend!
