It's Snowing!

At approximately 10:42PM this evening...it began snowing....in France....probably Paris....

Ta Da! Quilt top completed!



Simple 6" snowball blocks....



Gorgeous Rouenneries print fabrics from French General...



It is photographing waaaaaay more pink than it appears in person. Those are faded washed out reds....



I think this is my favorite print...



No...this one is....



Hmmm...this one's nice too!



Ah heck...the whole line is luscious! Now to decide whether to have this quilted with red thread.....yeah...I think I will. Because it'll help camouflage that pink...er...uh...I mean faded washed out red!



Feels great to have another top completed! Next!!

*Peace!

You are a dynamo - you finish quilts before I've had a chance to read the blog! Took me a couple of seconds to get the snow connection - ha ha - tres amusing!

Looks fabulous. I love that fabric collection tooooooo much!

Oh WOW Kim, I LOVE what you have done and am in shock you have done so much! Isn't the fabric so lovely to work with? Well done!! I am sure it must be one of the most beautiful fabric ranges ever...I have sewn a couple more grandmother flower blocks and will add pics later this week! Love you work Kim.

Beautiful quilt! I think that is one of my favorite fabric lines in a long time. I have the kit they put out waiting in my sewing room, I need to get on that, it's such gorgeous fabric.

Fantastical!!! LOVE IT!!! Seriously, when I see something like this, I really want to put down the cross-stitch (just for a bit) and learn how to quilt!

I'm playing catchup from the weekend - your around-the-world shopping spree was amazing! What a generous gift from Spain - love that A&E!!!

Oh and the quilts, wow and the Civil War Bride - unbelievable!

Congratulations on finishing your quilt - it is just beautiful. I love the fabrics and the colors. Is this a keeper or a Christmas gift?

Ok, done drooling.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Simple is the prettiest - I went with the stacked coins pattern, but I used more of the grays. :o)
