Even though it's summer right now, this quilt has me thinking about winter. We are ususally pushing 100 degrees here in Oklahoma, but it will be a cool 77 today. This isn't the first cold front to come through this summer. Ahh, cool rainy weather...fall, long sleeves and sweatpants!
Anyway, my husband asked me to make a quilt to take on his business trip to China. Custom has it that you are supposed to give a gift to your host I didn't really have any in my closet that seemed worthy. So I scoured pinterest for my inspiration.
I picked fabrics that reminded me of pine and birch trees in the winter. The black fabrics represent the shadows on a gray winter day. My daughter said the white and gray should be snow. (She's never seen a birch tree.) Plus quilts are probably my favorite because they are so easy, yet don't look plain.
Easy meandering on this quilt with a gray thread. Wasn't sure how much time I would have to get this quilt done. But it is ready to go!
