Snow Blossoms

Winter in Florida always makes me miss freshly fallen snow, beautiful snowflake’d sweaters, and chilly evenings with cups of homemade wassail. Not that I am really complaining about this 60-something degree weather… 

I’ve tried to bring a little winter into my home with my newest quilt, Snow Blossoms. The quilt design is an ode to one of my favorite winter emblems: the Nordic Snowflake.

It was fun to make, especially to pick out all the fabrics. (Moda’s Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille was really the perfect collection for this design; I did throw in a few Bella solids, as well as some matching Marmalade fabric for the back.)

The pattern is available in my shop in paper or PDF form.

If you’ve been following my blog, you already know that I am only a few weeks away from taking a little maternity leave! Until then, you will probably find me deep-cleaning my house and enjoying some quality time with the fam.  Happy New Year!!

    Just beautiful. This would be fun to do as a block of the month and have ready for next winter:) I may need to do that.

    Vanessa: I am loving this quilt. I am also from NJ and living here in the Tampa bay area for 28 years. My adult children have never experienced a white Christmas. I sometimes feel bad about that. This quilt is just stunning. I am such a novice quilter do you think to hard for me to attempt. I am glad you are taking some time off I so remember Nesting before my childrend were born. Enjoy. Happy New year.

    This is gorgeous: I have a huge crush on Nordic sweaters, too (this is definately the quilt to snuggle under/hide behind when I watch 'The Killing'!). With every good wish for you and your new baby x
