A finish that was not

from my pile of unfinished starts.  Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is a UFO in my sewing room.  Everything has potential.  Plus, I don't like the word WIP.  It's an accounting term and I'm not applying accounting to anything in my sewing room.  Such a dangerously slippery slope. 

However, I am not here to discuss what is not finished....I am here for this reason....

In from the Cold was a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop last year using Kate Spain's In from the Cold line of fabric.  

I loved making each and every one of these blocks.

Some were very simple and some had itty bitty little pieces.

I am pretty good at piecing tiny little things.  These wee pinwheels are too cute.

The quilting is a snowflake pattern.  White on white. 

The backing is using fabric from the same line featuring Christmas cookies.  The perfect compliment to a cup of steaming hot cocoa. 

I am on the program committee at my quilt guild.  We will do this quilt as a scrap busting project this year.  I can't wait to see what people come up with.



  1. I think it is fantastic! Great job!

  2. Great quilt, Pam! Shine on! Enjoy the quilt project as a "scrap busting project" with your guild pals! :)
