“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll,
This morning I woke up to this scene in my backyard!
My quilt guild has an annual quilt challenge and show in December. This year the challenge was to take a picture from nature and use the colors in the picture to create a quilt. It didn’t have to be a copy of the picture by just the colors from the picture. I had taken a picture last winter of a leaf desperately hanging on to a branch after the first snow.
The quilt is approximately 40 inches by 26 inches. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted. The picture frame border is finished with a piping edge and the center design is outlined with double piping.
