Hip HolidaysTutorial- Here's the quilt

It was snowing here today. I heard some grumbling about it being the end of April and snow and such. I thought it was fabulous because I wanted to take a picture of the quilt we are making while it was in a snowy setting.

Here's how the day looked:


Here's my thinking...hurry and run outside with quilt! Slap it over the garbage can so you can see the snow and the quilt together! This is soooo against everything I was taught when I was growing up that I just about couldn't do it!


Try laying the quilt over the lemon thyme bush! That will never do. Too Lumpy!


Get back inside with the quilt that now has snow (and probably dirt) all over it.

Dry it out by a roaring fire. I tried to get a picture of the flames but it didn't work out. The flames would flare up and I would snap. By the time that happened, the flame was long gone. I did this over and over and my reflexes never did improve. Hope you have a good idea what we are making even if the photography leaves a little to be desired! The next step will be fabric requirements and cutting and piecing.

A post on your efforts to create that just so photo is probably just as good as the perfect picture. We never stop trying to get the primal forces to co-operate with us though, do we?
Very happy quilt!

The quilt is adorable in or outside your home. Can't wait to start even though I have more Christmas quilts then I know what to do with.

Hi!

Love the quilt! I can follow the tutorial but is it me or are the paper patterns missing? There are several blank pages at the end of the tutorial, at least on my computer.

Thanks!

I've clicked on everything clickable on this web page. Clicking on the title only loops me back into the same page. Such a cute quilt. I was all excited to make it. Poo.

Obviously, no one is going to respond to the many comments asking where the tutorial is. I hate it, but will have to remove the link to this blog from my Pintrest. :(
