I'm imagining that many us save
photographs of quilts.
Maybe it's a design we like,
or a color combination that's interesting,
or the quilt just speaks to you.
For my March mini I decided
to take a look at the photos I'd been saving.
I used this quilt
which appears to be from the collection of the
International Quilt Museum.
(Sometimes it's hard to follow the trail)
I found the image on Pinterest.
Here's my interpretation.
Rocky Mountain Snow Keeps Fallen
17" x 24"
A couple weekends ago when we had our
I found myself looking for something to do
rather than volunteering to go shovel.
I remembered the quilt photo I had saved,
and began digging in the stash for fabrics.
I hadn't used many of my stripes and plaids for a while
so it was fun to reconnect with many of my favorites.
One thing that appealed to me about the original quilt,
besides the use of the color,
was the symmetry of the center.
It has a calming effect and
a sense of order despite all
the different fabrics.
Maybe the original quilter had strips
long enough to do the center in that fashion
and then had to piece the remaining rows.
I enjoyed the free use of the fabrics,
just adding pieces as I went.
I added a little stripe as the binding and
did some hand quilting
down the center of each row.
Some ticking that I had
been saving was perfect for the backing.
It was a fun mini to make for March.

on Wendy's blog, the Constant Quilter.
It's fascinating and amazing how each participant
creates a unique little quilt each month.
