Flimsy Friday

 I'm loving the snow!  My studio gets brighter earlier in the day due to the sun reflecting off the snow.  This is how I started my day.   So bright and happy, it  washes away any gloomy and glum cabin fever blues that might be lurking about.  


 When I started making strings last week I didn't plan on making a Wedding Ring quilt, but...failure on Plan A.  Onto Plan B which I pulled out of thin cold air.   My attempts at piecing the blocks ended in disaster.  Good thing there's always a Plan C that doesn't require so much pinning.  If you look closely at the picture below you can see where I marked a grid on a solid piece of fabric.  100 % applique.  All I had to do was add glue to an arc and press.  Much easier than a bazillion pins.


Add a few posies....


Now all I need to do is do an invisible machine stitch around ALL of it! 
Why can't I get a good picture of this quilt.  Maybe its because it's so bright.


When all else fails...put on your husbands boots and brave the weather.


Hmmm...the colors are still showing brighter than real life.


Oh well you get the idea.  She's happy and bright and puts a big ole smile on my face.  


Found another new to me Linky Party over at Modern Tradition Quilts, hop on over and link up.   You could win a free pattern if your project is featured next week!

  1. Your quilt is gorgeous, so bright and cheerful. I am a bit envious of your snow, we haven't had a single flake in my part of England and my dog loves it so.

  2. Howdy from Houston - the rodeo starts this weekend! Loving the pictures of the snow. Glad we don't have it here, though! That last picture with the sun and shadows and the bright quilt is just amazing. Would be a great desktop background! Heck, I'll just pin it to my "great quilting" board - so needs to be there for future enjoyment! Thanks for trekking outside to get the perfect shot!

  3. Love the quilt, and your method... sneaky girl. The picture is lovely. We don't see the sunshine here (in Vancouver, WA) very often, so I'm enjoying yours, snow and all. Also love your red plaid "pants" - are you out in your jammies? Oh, the sacrifices you make for a good picture. Thank you.
    Hugs

  7. How clever to make arcs with your strings strips. They are so cheerful, especially with the flower centers. Feel free to send extra snow or rain to the west coast. We're desperate for water.
