Chevron Snowflake IN Process


Hello and Welcome to my farm in Saskatchewan
I'm Conni

A wife to an amazing man, a mother to 3 amazing children, 
we farm on a 5th generation farm, both grain and cattle

I love to read, quilt and paper craft



I like to spend some time each night
browsing Pinterest

Usually Quilts
all kinds of quilts
or cards, right now its Christmas Cards

I came across this quilt 
in the Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine
(I just let my subscription go to this magazine of course)
because it is from the UK I get it digitally on the iPad

I showed the picture to my hubby
he said "now that is an awesome quilt" 
he has never said anything besides "nice" or "cool"

So I figured I had better make this quilt

I made a trip through Saskatoon last week and stopped at Periwinkle Quilting
they have a great selection of fat quarters!!

So I picked up the colours I needed

Sunday I was able to get to the craft room

 add up craft room + Christmas Music= very happy me!!

I was able to get all my white fabric cut ready to go



Then I paused to take a road trip with my hubby to haul some cows to the auction
Monday I was back in the craft room!!


I won't bore you with all the pictures I took, lol


end result!!

I love it!!
This was my first time sewing with 45 degree diamonds
like the ones for a Lonestar quilt


I have it all sandwiched up and ready to be quilted


I have a few other project I will be posting in the next few days so be sure to stop back

Happy Thursday
Thanks for stopping by

Conni! You put me to shame! WIthin a week, you have a quilt top already! AND you hauled cattle and did all the other things you have to do to keep your household going! I'M NOT WORTHY!! I love this quilt, by the way! I look forward to seeing the grand finish!

Thanks for taking part in Blogathon Canada!

Every now and then one sees a quilt that they just have to make- there are few like that, that I have completed. Your new quilt is lovely and has turned out beautifully.
Enjoy the blog hop- hope that you get to meet lots of new quilters and bloggers.
Regards from Alberta,
Anna
