...And In The Meadow …And In The Meadow
By: Sue Cook, Pennsylvania, USA

This was my first original quilt design. After I took a class to learn paper piecing I realized I could piece a pictorial design instead of having to applique. When I took this quilt to my LQS the sales people convinced me I should publish a pattern for it, so I started Larkspur Lane Designs!

A Snowy Friend Calendar A Snowy Friend Calendar
By: Starwood Quilter, Colorado, USA

I live in Colorado, where we might have snow any month of the year! This calendar quilt features twelve redwork snowmen/snowladies, each appropriate to their month. Each block was a fun bit of handwork to always have on hand and easily take with me. I used perle cotton for the embroidery.

My parents favorite vacation spot is Alaska so when I got the deep sea blue fabric I thought of an Alaskan landscape with a melting glacier and of course had to put in those cute little bears. Looks like the winter some of us wish we had this year:)

Snow Flakes Snow Flakes
By: Sharon Elliot, South Africa

This quilt was an exercise in patience and being extremely careful while cutting out and then the never-ending task of sewing. Each snowflake is a solid piece of fabric. 4 of the snowflake patterns were from Linda Pool’s book – Lace Patterns and the remaining 2 patterns were designed by my daughter.

By: teenietaters, Utah, USA

This is my very first attempt at applique. I hadn’t made any seasonal pieces in the 3 years I’ve been quilting I decided I really need to have some. I found the pattern in one of my quilting magazines and apologize I can’t find it to give credit to the pattern designer. I’ll keep looking!

Under the Stars Under the Stars
By: calicojoan, Colorado, USA

I finished a UFO and I love it. It was a kit that I had for years. The flannel and homespuns make it so warm and cuddly, that I have to ask myself all the time, just why did you take so long to make it up?
:-) And I have no good answer for you, sorry!

    Just wanted to congratulate Sharon Elliott of South Africa on her quilt – Snow Flakes. What time and patience she must have had to finish this. I also love the inclusion of the lace pattern – it makes it very unique. Well done Sharon. I cant wait to see what you do next.
