Love in the Middle of Winter

Hi! Yes, I am still here, admittedly it has been pretty quiet on the blog.
I hope life is treating you well. Life got pretty crazy towards the end of the year and with so much going on at work and home something had to give and that something ended up being the blog posts. But if you follow me on Instagram or on Flickr you know that I never quit sewing. Lots of fun stuff! If you have a chance stop by and take a look.  And today I wanted to introduce you to another quick and fun pattern! 



It is Snow Tires by Chrissy Lux of Sew Lux Fabrics. She asked if I wanted to test this pattern for her and I immediately said "sure!" This pattern was quick and easy to piece - there are no Y seams!  It is made up of squares and HST's. The most important part is your planning or layout. Chrissy includes a great coloring sheet in the pattern to use and very specific instructions on labeling each block so you get the placement you want. This pattern makes a great scrappy quilt or its perfect for a coordinating line of fabrics too. I used my stash of Amy Butler's Love line. I needed that wonderful saturated color to brighten up the oh so cold and snowy winter we are having here in Indiana! Now I am waiting for my backing to arrive and I will be able to turn this top into a beautiful finished quilt! It is indeed Love in the Middle of Winter...ahhh.



Head on over to Sew Lux Fabrics and pick up your copy of Snow Tires!

Happy Stitching!

  6. Such a happy quilt! I love the gray squares. What a perfect choice to balance all of the color. They are like gray paving stones in a flower garden.
