This week we had a snow day! Our first snow day (our only snow day). Well, it was lovely! I spent lots of time saying "Oh, how pretty! Oh, what nice light snow makes! Oh!" Just ask my family. I also spent some time hand quilting a burst of rainbow scraps.
And was able to finish it up in time to take these snowy pictures next morning, before it melted! Thank-you, snow.
Remember this? I made two inverse rainbow scrappy works in December, when testing out an idea for Color Intensive. It didn't turn out quite like I hoped, but I figured just what I'd do with them.
This one is my favorite, design-wise, so I hand quilted with pearl cotton (size 8) thread and fitted her with hanging triangles on the back. Now it's a mini quilt!
If I hadn't been so distracted by fabric shopping today, I might have started work with its twin. But, oh well, that's what weekends are for. Here's to a stitchy one for all!
