Birds and Bees Quilt, Flora and Fauna in the Winter

This quilt was sewn and photographed during the great Mammoth Lakes snowstorm of January 2017. It was freezing AND snowing outside when my six year old daughter took this photo for me. We kept trying to get a picture in between gusts of wind.

After we managed to get a full shot of the front and a full shot of the back, C went inside to warm her freezing digits, and I grabbed a chair and started doing detail shots. Every photo is peppered with snow pellets. I kind of like the look, what do you think?

This is the perfect quilt to cheer you up and help you remember the promise of spring. It also coordinates with a pillow I've made which includes a quote by Emerson, "The Earth Laughs in Flowers."

Made of 100% quilting cotton fabrics, this is a whole cloth quilt from Hawthorne Thread's Nectar line of designer fabrics. The panel is free motion quilted (FMQ), so each quilt made in this line will be slightly different than the others. 

The back fabric and trim is Crosshatch in Niagara from Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures designer fabric line. The batting used is low loft for a light, snugly, and warm feeling. 

The quilt you see in these photos is being donated to Texas Equusearch for their annual auction and fundraiser. Texas Equusearch was the search organization that stayed after all the other agencies had given up on my finding my friend, Cidnie's daughter, Kitty. You can read about Kitty here. She will never be forgotten. You can help Texas Equusearch too, by donating to their important work here.
