I really have been sewing–although it’s mostly stuff I can’t share yet. But I do have a photo to share of one the quilts from my book A Quilting Life: Creating a Handmade Home. I needed some photos of a few of the quilts for an upcoming magazine article, and my wonderful friend Korindi took the quilts one day and later that night emailed me the most amazing photos. I’m sharing a couple today that we decided not to use for the magazine article but that are beautiful nonetheless. The quilt above is one of my very favorite quilts and is called “Vintage Snowballs.” It is made with a layer cake of Cosmo Cricket’s Circa 1934, background fabric, and just a little bit of yardage for the borders. I love snowball blocks, and with the setting of these blocks you don’t need to worry about matching any seams, so it’s perfect for the beginner or for the more advanced quilter who wants a quick project!
The back of this quilt is a favorite too…I was so happy Korindi took a picture of the cute label fabric I used for the back. I had to use a strip of another print from the collection for the center of the backing, but I love that “pop” of color, too! As you can tell, it’s really not very green here yet, but we can definitely tell that spring is on the way–the fields will be beautifully green very soon!
I did sell out of the signed copies in my Etsy shop, but have another set of books on the way, so you can pre-order one here if you’d like one.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you get to sew today!
