Work in Progress...Le Soleil d'Hiver

 Overdue birthday gift...I've been working on it during our long week of snow, intense cold, and school cancellations (today it's because of the Governor's declaration of the State of Emergency for New Mexico).  I was stumped on this for weeks, then months....
This isn't at all what I had expected.  The stars are from my original plan--along with a few more created this week.  The Lakehouse Fabrics have been in my stash for a long time--mostly because once they arrived I was suddenly stumped about how I would use them.
Now they've all come together in this one project, and I'm trying really, really hard not to get stumped on the rest of it because I'd like to start quilting it tonight or tomorrow.

That bright window at the top of the first photo is the window in the north door covered with a portico--yes, the reflection of the sunlight off the snow is intense.  But how nice to have sun--and a temperature that is up to +23.  Hooray! No frozen pipes here last night.  And a knock on the door from city workers just going around the neighborhoods checking to see that everyone has heat and water and is warm.  That's never happened here before, but I do love living in a small town that would do that!

Stay warm, friends.......

I love the colors in this quilt. The blue and white fabric reminds me of my Grandmother's Blue Willow dishes...

Blue & yellow is my favorite combination! I'm currently working on one with blue & yellow soccer balls. I like yours better.

Love those colors! Heres to hoping everyone goes back to school on Monday and that the snow predicted for Sun/Mon misses both of us!

Dora, I think you sent me an email from my post on The Old Red Barn, but google dumped it into my spam and I didn't see it until just as I was clicking "delete forever"--too late to turn back. If that wasn't you, please forgive me, and if it was, please forgive me, too! I don't know if you had a question or anything, but I'll keep a closer watch on my spam for the next couple of days. Sorry!

This quilt is really stunning-- I've never seen another one like it. Maybe the weather is setting off some really creative part of you? Can't wait to see this finished.
