Challenge 4 Art: Winter

It's the third deadline for our Challenge 4 Art project. The theme? "Winter."
I struggled with this theme; I love winter and so much about it--the individuality of snowflakes, memories of snowy nights, the bracing feel of winter wind against my cheeks (and then that delicious first sip of hot chocolate upon returning inside!). But transforming those visions into fabric--tough.

I ultimately went down an abstract (at least for me) path. I chose 4 different colors of sky and fused different sized circles to represent snowflakes. I was going for the look of snowflakes flying at the windshield while you're driving.

I chose diagonal line quilting to create the feel of falling snow.

The other talented quilters in our little group are:
Amy of Amy's Crafty Shenanigans
Susannah from fiberchick 
Claudia will join back in next round.

Be sure to check out their projects too when you're done here! 
I can't wait to see the other interpretations of winter.

And looking forward to some real "winter" snow showing up here in Michigan some time soon! 

You can see my previous two themed posts in the links below and also find links for the other ladies' posts as well!


  1. Oh I love this quilt! It conveys perfectly how the snow envelops you in a storm especially driving in the car. Fantastic!

  2. This is a great representation of Winter - I can picture skies just like that and the snow coming at you in a vortex towards the windshield!

  3. luv this quilt-very simple but innovative and effective!
