January arrives and settles in like an old fashioned winter. And, even though the garden appears to be deserted, tracks in the newly fallen snow tell a different story.
We don't have any bears around here, but I thought it would be fun to piece together Bear's Paw Quilt from Kathleen Tracy's book Prairie Children and Their Quilts. Made from flannels I had on hand, machine pieced and quilted.
I like this time of year, the quiet season. A time to rest and enjoy a slower pace of life, more time for reading and needlework and time to get back to hand quilting. I was so close to finishing my Red Delicious quilt when Spring arrived, but I am finished now, just the binding to go.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
