Snowlfake Quilt for Quiltathon

I have a fondness for snowmen and snowflake fabric. After Christmas, I found several pieces on clearance that I am using to make a quilt. I have been mulling over what pattern to use, thought about designing one in EQ6, and then came across the Sweet Menegerie Nine Patch Quilt by Moda. I chose this pattern because it is simple and I knew I could easily use only blue and white and have a stunning quilt.

I am getting an early start on the quiltathon by doing the cutting this evening. Maybe if I am real ambitious and stay up into the night, I will start piecing.

What do you do while you piece? Do you listen to music? Do you watch movies? I really like to put on "chick flicks" and watch them or the Hallmark Channel while I am piecing. My family can't understand how I can do two things at once. But now my son does this too. I think we both must be ADHD. It is very hard for me to sit down and watch TV without reading, sewing, quilting, or blogging at the same time.

Anyway, here is the beautiful snowflake fabrics I am using. I can't wait to see how the rich blue material on the right blends and/or stands out with the others. I hope I have enough of it to use for the backing. If not all of the backing, at least part of it.

Can't wait to see what everyone is creating this weekend.

Until tomorrow  . . .

Happy snipping, stitching,  and quilting.

  1. I'm the same way - my hubby doesn't understand how I can have TV on, crochet, read and/or blog at the same time. If I DVR something I usually don't try to read or blog too but I can crochet then. Hubby doesn't like TV on when he is reading. I guess I am crazy but even right now I have TV on (HGTV) and I am blogging. Go figure...LOL!
