Snow and quilts

With all this freezing cold winter weather happening these days I feel like I’ve been in hibernation mode.  I stay busy during the day but at night I want to eat and go to bed.  I have less motivation to quilt, sew, or make.  I have a design board full of quilt blocks that I want to finish but don’t seem to have the time to sew.  I hope I’m not the only one feeling this way, I’m really hoping once the temperature is consistently above 30 degrees and the tulips start to show I’ll be whipping up all sorts of lovely projects.

Since I haven’t felt like finishing an intense quilty project I did finish two cute scrappy quilts. A little over a month ago I started this easy scrappy log cabin quilt. It’s made up of four big blocks sewn together. It’s a pretty simple quilt but I did the math beforehand to make sure each block would come out to the same size and then sewed those four blocks together, I had to trim here and there to square it up.  This type of quilt is so nice to whip up and is cute!

My wonderful husband was there to hold my quilts for me. We took our two kids and thought we’d have a nice morning outside on the ice (and it was above 25 degrees!).  My four year old loved sliding around on the ice but my two year old was not having any of it. So we took a few pictures and then went out for breakfast:)
This quilt is made with mostly Tasha Noel fabric which are so adorable. Her drawings of little girls, flowers, and ducks are so cute from this line called Country Girls.

The other fast and simple quilt I finished was a scrappy princess quilt. I love the Heather Ross fabric used and how it’s a bit more whimsical because of the scrappy fabrics.

I love the colors of this quilt and how playful it is. I wanted to make a quilt that showcased the princess and also use a majority of the fabric line. I love this quilt but have already started another quilt using this same fabric. Who can stop at just one with these adorable prints:)
Anyways, this is what I was able to finish these past few months during the cold, icy, and snowy winter. I hope you’re able to accomplish more than I have but if not, at least we’re not alone;)
