I finally got to take some "snowy" quilt pics like everyone else in blog land. This isn't exactly snow, but what passes for it in Texas. A couple of inches of sleet, frozen into a solid sheet of ice. Note the lack of footprints in these pictures-- that's because this stuff doesn't crunch, you just slide all over it.
I like to quilt my scrappy quilts fairly densely. I chose to do a stipple in the crumb blocks, while most of the string rows got ribbon candy.
I also snuck in a few feathers, in the style from Angela Walter's book, because I wanted to practice them and it's busy quilt so I can mix my motifs without it standing out.
It's fun to look closely at the scraps and see different ones pop out. It's amazing how well all the different fabrics work together when you stand back and look at the whole thing.
The binding is scrappy (of course) pieced together from my stash of leftover bindings. I attached it by machine.
Backing is this fun, intricate print that was on sale at my LQS. The quilt measures 50"x 42".
