A Winter's Tale A Winter’s Tale
By: Gilly,
United Kingdom

This was a fun Christmas project made using a jellyroll of “Blitzen by Basic Grey” for Moda and a sweet red dotty fabric from my stash for the sashing & border. I fussy cut the little snowmen squares and machine quilted with slightly squiggly lines.

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

This quilt is my first original design. When I first published it, I made the carrot button noses from polymer clay and I could make about 60 of them an hour. My hands were stained orange for 3 days after. Since then, I’ve had my buttons made by a company that reproduced one of my handmade buttons.

Christmas Cardinal Christmas Cardinal
By: Donna Martin,

This was a challenge to my abilities! I found the paper pieced pattern online at Paper Panache. The tiny pieces almost took my sanity, but I believe it is the most beautiful thing once finished! I gave it to my mom to decorate her house for Christmas.

Dressing For Winter Dressing For Winter
By: Glenda,
British Columbia, Canada

Appliqued children flit about, as bright as winter birds.
Trees are cloaked in snowy shawls, animals change their coats of brown and grey for white and children play outdoors dressed in scarlet and blue, green and gold. The math of mid-winter is simple. Snow plus friends equals fun.

Friends Friends
By: ZSuzsa Benko,

I used thread painting for the cheerful little penguins, and then applied them to the middle of the picture.
I designed and stiched the scrolls myself. I used shiny little rhinestones for the embellishment to create the impression of snow or ice shining around them.

Looking Out My Window Looking Out My Window
By: Jenelle Boxberger,
Kansas, USA

I love to decorate with snowmen. I fell in love with this guy that is looking in the window. Some of it is machine embroidered and I pieced it together. I did the quilting on my Brother ULT2003.

Snowman Quilt Snowman Quilt
By: piecrust,
Georgia, USA

This quilt represents my family and friends as snowmen. Fun to make, and even more fun to characterize someone as a snowman. There is Patti the nurse, Chris the postal worker, Ernie the engineer, Barry the cowboy and Vickie the quilter. Oh, and least I forget Frosty, the traditional snowman.

Snowmen Follies Snowmen Follies
By: Mtn Mama,
Oklahoma, USA

Made of soft flannels this quilt boasts 20 machine embroidered Snowmen blocks. Each snowman is “acting out” in a different way. I designed this quilt during the great Snowstorm of 2011 in Oklahoma.

My son helped pick out the fabrics, and did some of the sewing. Sadly, the thrill of sewing hundreds of blocks wore off after about an hour! :)

Winter Weekends Winter Weekends
By: Kaaren Biggs,
Ontario, Canada

An extra-long cuddle quilt for my son who is 6′ 7″ tall – snowmobiling is how he relaxes after a busy week in the corporate world! I have made many versions of this design I call Georgetown Squares – it’s quick and easy to make and I call it my “go to” quillt.

Winter Welcome Winter Welcome
By: Nancy,
Utah, USA

My first attempt at applique and I felt the house looked too lonely, so I decided to add a snowman waving hello. This guy hangs on my quilting room door from November until March, welcoming me into my quilting ‘sanctuary’ and ‘stress relief’ room.

    Hmmmmmmmm good question……….think black and cream ;-)

  • March 3, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    I’m using white now a lot.

  • March 3, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    White! It’s so versatile.

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    I use white. Specifically, Kona PFD (Prepared for Dying) but grey is a close second.

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    I use a lot of black.

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Shades of White.

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Red. I like to add a little red in all my quilt and projects.

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    I use Kona “Snow” for an all-purpose white. It seems to go with both cool and warm colours.

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    white as a background, but sash with whatever is a suitable

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Lately I have been into the yellow-creams, (verging into pale yellow). It’s been really sunny here the past few days, so maybe I am just trying to rush spring. SOOOOOO ready for winter to be over!

  • March 3, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    White is the color I use the most. Thanks for the giveaway. I love the houndstooth fabric.

  • March 3, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    I use a lot of blues..over run in boy babies..lol

  • March 3, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Neutrals like calico color & white lately.

  • March 3, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    I tend to use a lot of blues but not necessarily solids. Were I to look in my solid fabric bins, probably I have more shades of blue ready to use than any other color.

  • March 3, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    I have been using more solid white lately.

  • March 3, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    love to be entered in giveaway thanks

  • March 3, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    oops forgot to answer


  • March 3, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I’ve been using various shades of gray lately…both dark and light.

  • March 3, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    I used a lot of white solid… all range of white. Voting for only three this week is really tough…so many beautiful works!

  • March 3, 2013 at 11:43 pm

    I used light pink for my last quilt because that was what I had on hand, but think I’ll be switching to white or cream for future ones.

  • March 4, 2013 at 12:37 am

    Los azules y toda su variedad de celestes pegan con casir todo lo que hago .Gracias a su increíble trabajo y a Katy.Cariños.

  • March 4, 2013 at 2:21 am

    Oh my, the quilts this week are so charming, it was very difficult to choose.
    When I dó my own sewing, I guess green solid is my number one colour, simply because my stash is overflowing with green solids. They seem to grow in number lol. I really love green, it makes the Warmer colours shine.

  • March 4, 2013 at 2:24 am

    ik gebruik momenteel veel paars


  • March 4, 2013 at 4:26 am

    I’m using Kona’s Stone most lately.

  • March 4, 2013 at 4:55 am

    I like to use a little bit of red in a lot of my quilts. I use shades of white often too.

  • March 4, 2013 at 9:13 am

    White is kind of my go-to solid, but it’s not actually solid usually, more tone-on-tone.

  • March 4, 2013 at 9:38 am

    Great work everyone! It was hard to select only 3!
    The solid color I use most in my quilts… Blue!

  • March 4, 2013 at 11:03 am

    I am not really partial to any one colour. but if I look at my scrap bins, blue and white/lights are over flowing these days.

  • March 4, 2013 at 11:09 am

    I would say it is a tie between blue and green.

  • March 4, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    The solid colour I use most is blue.

  • March 4, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    If I use a solid it is yellow which is more often than not the background color.

  • March 4, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I use Ecru quite a bit when I sew.

  • March 4, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    mostly creams.

  • March 4, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Seems to be red, judging by my stash pile.

  • March 8, 2013 at 4:54 am

    Pink. Many women is that we are home!

  • March 8, 2013 at 8:55 am

    I use dark blue. And that is because the quilts I make are all tardis quilts. Though when I make other quilts I usually use a pannel and not a lot of solid.
