Christmas 2020

As Christmas approaches, we wish you good health and peace of mind.  Here is a quilt with sparkling snowflakes, bringing to mind the serenity of a crisp winter's day. Thoughts of winter bring to mind this quote by John Geddes:

I pray this winter be gentle and kind--a season of rest from the wheel of the mind.

Winter Joy by Peggy Morris

Beautifully pieced and quilted by Peggy Morris, Winter Joy was exhibited at the 2020 Quilt Arizona show.  Peggy says, "Shimmering snowflakes [were done] in the middle of the desert"!  

The snowflakes are set atop an intricate pieced background with double Sawtooth Star blocks, surrounded by several borders.  The neutral taupe and gray color scheme in the background blocks provides the perfect setting for the darker snowflakes.

The snowflakes appear to be pieced, but they are actually raw-edge appliqued on top of the quilt, which was finished with computer guided quilting designs resembling swirling snow.

The snowflake pieces were quilted with metallic thread and embellished with tiny sapphire blue rhinestones for extra sparkle. Note: The Winter Joy quilt design is by Border Creek Station
