I just received my copy of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting. I am super excited to report that one of my quilts Snow Day is featured in their January-February issue.
I wish I could take photos of my quilts as well as they do!
The blocks in this quilt reminded me of snowflakes. Growing up in North Dakota we had plenty of the white stuff from October through April. We always dreamed of a school snow day (i.e. unplanned vacation day). But living in a big town (35k people) we never had a snow day. We were very jealous of those coming via bus from the base or small outlying communities who frequently got the extra "vacation" day.
Now that I work from home -- every day can be a snow day. And I can truly enjoy the white stuff (except when shoveling my driveway). :)
Fons and Porter are offering kits if you wish to replicate the fabrics in this quilt. These fabrics are all from Hoffman of California. You may order directly from Fons and Porter here.
Snow Day Quilting
My quilting designs for Snow Day were done in Art and Stitch. Here is a video that shows how I developed my basic snowflake block.
Here is a slideshow of the snowflake variations that were used in quilting my Snow Day quilt.
I have packaged these digitized quilting designs together and am offering all eight designs at an introductory package price of $25 (regular price of $50). This package is sure to work for your next "winter" quilt.
