Let It Snow!

Well the weather outside is .... way too warm to see snow.  It's gray and wet with lots of puddles.  Although the Christmas decor is put away, the snowmen are still scattered around the house for January.  And on the frame, a beautiful batik snowflake quilt is resting while I take a break.

Here's what it looks like so far.  Simple snowflake quilting in dark blue.  I don't want the quilting stitches to compete with the top.
Big Blocks with Snowflakes

Cornerstones with improvisational snowflakes
The blocks are on point with pretty pieced sashing.  I had swirly wind patterns in the sashing.  There are more starts/stops than I realized, but the overall effect is nice.  January is a perfect time of the year to quilt with snowflakes!

It's a busy day at the bird feeder (and the ground below).  Doves, tufted titmice, a woodpecker, several cardinals, finches (at least I think that's what they are), a bazillion squirrels and one wandering cat have kept the backyard show alive.

Enjoy your day!
