Winter Menagerie


This is Kerri’s Sidelights quilt, which is a pattern by Mountainpeek Creations.  She purchased the kit from the Prairie Rose quilt shop in Minot and the fabric is called Winter Menagerie by Jason Yenter.    Kerri asked for Flurry for the Panto design,



I used a silver grey So Fine thread  for the top and a grey Bottom Line for the back.   The backing is a navy Fireside and even though I used grey thread you can’t tell and it looks like I used navy.   One thing to think about when choosing threads for a quilt with Fireside or Minkie backing is that the plush nature of these fabrics tend to beard to the top of the quilt.  So keep that in mind when choosing thread and you can minimize that effect.


We have had a few +10’c days so the snow is melting like crazy and the ice is now all fractured on the surface and the cracks are widening.  The lake ice is still a few feet thick so very safe to walk on but I’m hoping for an early melt this year!



  1. Oh Kathy, you're beautiful winter landscape is the perfect backdrop for this quilt!

  2. Lovely! Hoping for warmer weather for you soon.

  3. A beautiful quilt. I especially like the outer scalloped border with the corner blocks.

  4. Perfect panto choice for that quilt. I have that pattern and all the fabrics and will get it made up...some day. :)

  5. I love how the quilting shows so perfectly on the backing.
