Snowflakes by BJ Meier, quilted by Christine Zachow


The bright white snowflakes stand out brilliantly against the blue and green batik fabrics in this foundation-pieced quilt!  BJ Meier says, "This is one of my Christmas wall hanging; I use it every year."  The Snowflakes quilt pattern by Barbara Fiedler and Sherri Bain Driver was published by Quiltmaker magazine

24 Days of Christmas at Quilt Inspiration - Day 11

Winter Memories by Sue Garman


The description card from the tribute to Sue Garman last month in Houston, Texas, reads: "In Winter Memories, you can almost hear children laughing in the midst of building a snowman, you can almost feel the icy cold of a starry night; and you can sense the joy of a season of giving."
We love the high-contrast flying geese border which really sets off these angular geometric blocks !


Sue's delightful, vibrantly colorful work is all machine-pieced, without applique. It is hand-quilted, embroidered and embellished with buttons.


Santa's neatly pleated shirt and the little bell on his cap are just some of the fun embellishments here that add to the three-dimensional appearance of this quilt.
