A summery quilt for the dead of winter

Here is my first finished UFO for the year--made with my snow dyed fabric from last year, free motion quilted with my favorite Aurifil Mako 50 wt in several different colors.

On a frigid January day, this makes me dream of summer.  I'm embarrassed to say that I dyed the fabric and pieced it together, AND quilted it last year, and all it needed for a finish was facings, which I sewed on last week finally.

Gotta get more of those UFOs done!!


  1. So beautiful! Hope you are well!

  2. This is gorgeous in every way. I love the hand dyed fabrics and your free motion quilting is masterful. These are some of my favorite colors too.
