A Winter Snowscape in Baby It's Cold Outside

"A Winter Snowscape," made by Pam Geisel, December 2006

I made "A Winter Snowscape" back in December of 2006. It is a scrappy pieced quilt with blue and white commercial fabrics. Some of the blue fabrics have stars printed on them in both blue and yellow.

There are four snowflakes with hand quilting to indicate they are rotating as they fall. (Some people have commented that they look like stars or fish and I'm OK with those interpretations.)

The white at the bottom is the snow piling up. One unintended combination of blue and white blocks made heart shapes.

This quilt, along with Crossings and Tropical Sunset can be seen in Studio 14’s “Baby It’s Cold Outside” fiber exhibit. The gallery is located on the second floor of the Benkin building, 14 E. Main St. in Tipp City. The show runs through Feb. 27 and is open Tues.-Sat. from 11 am to 5 pm and Sun. from 1 pm to 5 pm.

As always you can click on the photos to see them larger.
