Sewing in a Winter Wonderland!

Earlier this week, RBD said, "There's a 100% chance of snow on Friday night, let's go!"  So I packed up my quilting stuff and we took off on Friday morning.
I sewed and watched for snow out the kitchen window on Friday.  I put this quilt top together which is made from a Mary Engelbreit panel.  I used red polka dot sashing and black polka dot corner stones.   Not sure what to use for outer borders.  Next I worked on this lap quilt or table topper, which looks quite nice on the coffee table, don't you think?

When we arrived, it was 34 degrees inside, so RBD got a good fire going in the wood stove!  After a couple hours, we could take off our coats.

I had completed the houses borders earlier in the week, but added the red sashing yesterday.  It's now ready to quilt!

The snow began to fall at about 6:30 p.m on Friday night.  When we woke up this was the view from the dining room window where I was sewing!

We aren't skiers, just walkers.  This was yesterday.  This morning before we left, we walked up the hill again and it was sunny and the snow covered trees were glistening against the blue sky and it was sooo pretty!  Forgot to bring my camera though, so no photo.

Your quilt is soo cute! Could you tell me please what pattern it is or did you do this yourself? Now I'm wondering where you went for your snow? We are here in Utah and got some also. I spoke to my folks in Oregon and they were snowed in in Eugene with 8 inches (it closes the place down there, Eugene doesn't have a lot of snow plows) so they spent the day in p.j.'s enjoying music.

Oops... I forgot to add my email; can't say as I remember if it's in the listing. Thanks...

Your quilt top came together so beautifully! I love the houses and trees border with the stars in the corners!
