Winter is Coming…

Winter IS Coming… And so are the holidays!
It’s inevitable so don’t shoot the messenger here… at least it’s not Christmas in July, I did wait till August! :)  I wanted to thank everyone for their nice emails and comments on my tutorials ~ it’s great to get feedback and hear from fellow quilters!
Earlier this summer I was busy working on this little holiday project for The Festival of Quilts. The festival is held in Birmingham, England, and I made this mini-quilt for the Warm Company’s booth to promote their fusible fleece and steam-a-seam products.

All the applique is either quilting cotton or wool…

    What a great design! Love the cute little flying geese. Have fun at the festival.
    PS- I am a big fan of GOT too! I did not like this last season as much, straying from the books more and more now.
