This is the backing that Sue has chosen for her quilt. It works perfectly with the many colors, don't you think? Nice job Sue.

Another winter storm last night, three in a row. It certainly is the time for quilting. I have decided to use my brightest colors and put some brights on the winter days. This picture shows the base for my project. It is a gradation fabric called Glacier Park. This fabric is designed by Caryl Bryer Fallert and is sold through Bernatex Fabrics. The five strips that I have framed are quilted in a background pattern with cobblestones. It acts as a good filler. I am using a variegated thread to add more color. The diamonds which are attached on the finished wallhanging, I hand dyed at a workshop this winter. I think they turned out lovely and are a perfect match to go with my background pieces.

The next few pictures will show the quilting we have done in the diamonds. Every diamond is done in a different pattern. Hope you have enjoyed looking at my recent project and maybe you will try making something bright and colorful for your winter day. See you next time.
