The Winter Solstice has arrived in all it grand splendour! Woke up to a icy sunny sky and –41’c ( that is also –41’F if your wondering). This is the coldest December I have experienced in a long time and I wonder what January will have in store for us. So if you have been wondering why there haven’t been many outdoor pictures on my blog lately you now have your answer! :)
I did venture out yesterday when it was a balmy –31’c to get some pictures of my Mirror Mirror quilt. This is the same quilt pattern that I quilted for our guild a few weeks ago shown here. This is another great pattern for using up fat quarter bundles that seen to accumulate in your sewing room. I used an Island Batik bundle called Hydrangea. The panto is Taro, light blue So Fine thread and Dream Blend batting.
I had a great blue backing in my stash that worked well for this quilt and I am now stitching the binding on as I sit by my wood stove to keep warm!
