Winter In the Woods

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!

Linking up with:


  1. I love the colours you have chosen - the greens blend with the grass in the background, and certainly capture the birch trees.

  2. What a wonderful gift for your husband to present to his host. I love birch trees. I am going to have to make a "plus" quilt!

  3. Fabulous job. Just love the color combinations in both quilts.

  4. I also love the color combination. Great job!

  5. Wow that is beautiful! Love the colors and the custom...that is really cool.
