A Cozy Quilt

Oh yes, we needs lots of cozy quilts this winter in the Midwest.   Sub-zero temps and mountains of snow are making me wish for an early Spring.  I know it will eventually get here and I'm trying NOT to be impatient.  This harsh winter will make me appreciate the Spring season even more!

So, I got a bit off-track didn't I?  I'm playing along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Cozy Quilt.  The inspiration photo is so inviting, that I had to find a bit of time to play along today.

I pulled out my quilt dies and got busy making this.

You should have seen the mess on my craft table with all of those little quilt pieces.  Ack!
It was a little like putting a puzzle together, but worth the effort.  I mounted my quilt pieces onto to black pinking squares to make the colors pop.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope you'll leave a comment!
