Time to snuggle up

Yes, it’s that time of year (at least here in the northeast) when the weather turns a little cooler and you find yourself needing to snuggle up under a quilt with good book and something warm to drink all in an effort to stay warm.

Here is a quick and easy quilt to make for yourself or it would be a great holiday present – yes – it is easy AND quick enough to get done in time for the holidays (well maybe not for Hanukkah this year – it sure is coming early)!

The quilt is entitled Winter Windows and features the Winter Pines Collection by Thimbleberries for RJR Fabrics.  These fabrics lended themselves so well to this pattern.  But if you are looking for a little different look find some focus fabrics that would look good as being featured in the windows – then choose complementary fabrics (tonals) in the proper value ranges to serve as the window frames.

The pattern is featured in the current issue (December/January 2014) of McCall’s Quick Quilts

Look for it at your local quilt shop or news stand – or order a copy here (and while you are at it – why not just subscribe!!!)

And the view out my window has changed a bit this fall – instead of looking at New York City skyscrapers, I  am looking at the buck as he eats the birdies dinner!

So,  if you could snuggle up under a quilt – what would you be reading and what would have in your cup?
