baptism by snow

all this hand quilting is starting to pay off. The quilt is starting to behave like a quilt. It folds up so nicely into a bundle. It reminds me of a cowboys blanket roll. It is very satisfying to fold it..is that weird?

still lots to go as you can see. I started to use the striped fabric as the backing and with all the quilting I did on the river sand, it was just too rough on the back side.  So I found a twin size navy blue flannel sheet in our linen closet and that feels perfect. I need to find my silvery silk to include a moon, my dad has done his fair share of howling at the moon…

so far the sky has been my favorite part to quilt, it looks like actual clouds to me. The moon will go just to the left of these clouds.

    hey, this quilt is absolutely wonderful. it is truly folk art at its best. honest and loving and simply and economically made. i love the snow ceremony and yes! folding a quilt is part of the process. i think that is why i put them together so quickly even if the details are not done. i love to fold them and roll them and hug them. i really love what you have done. really!
