A Look at Winter


This is the quilt from the winter section of the book. For some unknown reason blogger has chosen to turn it sideways. So everyone turn your heads far to the left. Blogger is my nemesis which is a big reason I will never win any blog awards!
 I love this quilt too. It is a great stashbuster. I used civil war blues in various prints for this quilt and I think it is a quilt for any season.  I am an appliquer first and foremost so all those little half square triangles about did me in. I am glad I kept with it though because I am pleased with the way it turned out. There is a wool on wool table mat that complements this quilt.
Happy Quilting, 
Dawn
The book, A Year of Cozy Comforts, is now available in the online store. Free shipping in the US.
