This is Frost!


I'm happy to see the actual frost (& snow) on the ground disappear this week!  And instead show you my scrappy quilt in icy blues, which is featured in the January issue of Quilt Now.


Frost (Quilt Now Jan18)


As you know, I LOVE using scraps.  Sticking to a particular colourway while just using scraps is a little more challenging than just using a random selection of colours.  Scraptastic challenge accepted!


I started with a spikey block (my trust Sizzix helped me out with the cutting), then dropped the pale aqua and soft blues into it.  I only needed to beg a small amount of blue from a willing friend!

You can get a better idea of the block from the cushion above.  Katy the editor asked for a cushion of the same block, but in a different colourway.  I used Kona solids for the cushion, and went for a more masculine vibe. This is to give the readers an alternative way of seeing the versatility of the block.

My background & binding is Kiss Dot by Michael Miller, and the backing is Vintage Market by Lori Holt.

The weather never matches the quilts when I'm photographing them!

So that's Frost.  I hope you like my scrappy quilt.

I'm in the process of making my very last quilt of 2017. Sadly you won't get to see it until March '18.


And with less than one week until the 'big day' I hope you are a lot more organised than me!


Happy sewing!
