Next Sunday we “spring forward” and change the clocks, so surely spring is on the way, right?

Well, I just finished this quilt kit I bought from Keepsake Quilting over a year ago!

The pattern is called Snow Days by Hen Scratch Quilting.  I am soooo pleased with how it came out!

I really enjoyed making the little houses!!  All those fabrics have  little white dots that perfectly depict falling snow!!

And the tree fabric with the little birds is just so perfect to go between the houses.

The quilting was fun, too.

I had bought a flannel to put on the back, but it was too bright…sigh

  5. That is SO Cute!! And very appropriate for the winter you've had so far. It was -6 early this morning here in eastern SD but the sun is shining and it is nearly 30. 50s by the weekend, so I'm hoping for a little taste of spring too. Not that we could expect spring to stay around this early here in the upper midwest, but it's nice while it lasts.

  8. That beautiful quilt almost makes winter seem great. LOL I do hope spring arrives soon. Our winter has been pretty mild in terms of snow but lots of really cold days. At least it seems like it. This week we had to cave in and take Titan to the groomer. He looked like a mop with legs. Now he looks like a Westie puppy. LOL

  10. That is such a cute quilt! And the tree fabric with the little red birds is just the right fabric to set those house blocks in a perfect winter scene. Good Job!

  11. Polly, I love that quilt. I just realized that it is a pattern done by Janet Locey. Janet and I have been going to the same retreat in California for 20 some years. Wow, small world!

  15. I love your quilt -- so perfect with your weather. We, in the Pacific NW, are having great weather but we are worried about a drought this summer! I also love your new header with Yogi's photo. He is so stinkin' cute!

  20. Your quilt is great. Love the fabrics! We, in NC, are so ready for Spring. I will really make an effort not to complain when it is hot this summer>

  21. I love your quilt! The fabrics are perfect, it looks like the wind is blowing and the snow is swirling! The back is really cute too :) I love the view out your back window. I grew up in snow country, but haven't experienced much since I've been married. I miss going for walks at night all bundled up, in a snowstorm. I always thought it was so cozy!
