Cold weather and quilts

I have fallen in love with this quilt. I haven't been able to find the magazine that Tiff found the pattern in, but I love it. The blues and browns and creams are such a wonderful combo. Reminds me of the beach. Which is where I would love to be right about now. It's very cold out here in the Midwest.

Tiff over at loved the quilt so much so that she made her own. Go give a looksee at her creation.

I have a quilt in process at the moment. It is to be a gift for a friend for her birthday. Here is a small sneek peek of it. Its still in the sewing machine at the moment. Once I am done, I will post the finished quilt. As you can see, I haven't learned freemotion quilting yet, so the "x's" are what is keeping it all down. and straight lines and stitching in the ditch as well. Hoping to take a freemotion class some time this year.

Well, stay warm and keep quilting and crafting.

Hi Cheryl,

Sorry I didn't put in the name of the magazine, it's American Patchwork and Quilting Feb. 2008 issue(by Better Homes and Gardens). On the front of the magazine in a blue, green, and yellow windmill block quilt.

I can't wait to see the finished quilt you are making for your friend, it looks lovely.
