Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin....

Mother Nature.....Yeah, she's the one to blame for this deep freeze I currently find myself in.

Don't get me wrong, I love winter and I love the snow, but seriously?

Snow can live at temps above 0, just saying! Snow can even live at temps above 32 (I've seen it, don't go there). But the absolute best temps for snow to live is about 20. With bright sun. Those are the best days for things like skiing and ice fishing. Throw in a few grandkids and life doesn't get much better (except on my bike, but since January and motorcycling don't mix up here that's not a current possibility).

But, alas, since we have soooooo much cold and sooooooo few snowflakes, really, we have less than a foot, which at this point in the year is just ridiculous, I am forced to complain about the weather.

I want snow! (There, I said it)... And lots of it.

Kita and I love to take long walks in the woods in the deep snow. Ok, she likes to take long runs - she thinks she's a sled dog, I just try to hang on and not get my snowshoes hung up in the branches... but I digress...

Reader's Show and Tell....

This was a two year project because I had to put it away twice to take care of my mother.

It was a pattern from Brandi Crazy Strippin but I put sashing and borders in it to make it easier to hand quilt. The final size is 92" x 105". I like it now that it is all done.

....Cynthia

Send me pictures of your creations and we'll put them here and on our Show and Tell Page.


FR** E-Pattern for January 2015....

A-Maze-Ing

HERE

Now you can create an A-maze-ing wallhanging, using topless triangles, that when sewn into rows, form an interesting maze. Half triangles are used at the top and bottom of each row to square up your quilt. Choose a color for your maze, then find five fabrics in this color family, ranging from light to dark. Just think of the possibilities, you could go dark and dramatic, lighter and more subtle, bold and vibrant, the choice is yours. Each quilt can have it's own distinct look, just based on your fabric choices. Easy to do and lots of fun, uses the Starmaker 6 (sold separately).
