I LOVE IT! You translated your photograph beautifully. The trees and tracks are also my favorites about your piece.

I'll get mine posted soon.


I haven't read your post yet because I was reading snowmageddon (I really hope that is an exaggeration!) and the I saw your pictures of how you started on your project. From that moment on I couldn't read anymore and was just looking at your pictures.
I love it! I don't know why because I am normally a very geometric-searching person and I like having things very orderly (I can't even look at wonky stars for too long and I hate when my seam allowances are not the same widths). But your miniquilt (it is a miniquilt, isn't it?) just looks right. It is a perfect translation of your picture and I love every little detail about it. The trees, the swirling besides and on the paths, the little crystals, those icy colours on the back!
You should be really proud of yourself, you have created a small masterpiece!


That is super cool! I love the whole process!


Oh my goodness!!!!!! WOW!!! Very impressive! Brace yourself for the snowstorm as I have it here - began yesterday and still snowing and blowing today so far! Lovely!

Denise Fitzgerald

That is really inspirational. I was looking at that book last night - how nice to see your blog this morning and your interpretation. really lovely.


Love that book. And Love. Your. Quilt! Beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

Cathy Buel

Very nice. Your quilt is so inspiring. I hope you don't get as much snow as expected. We are expecting 12"-18". I too am hoping they are wrong. Again, you did a spectacular job on your quilt.


Stephanie, it is beautiful!


I love it! I especially love the trees and swirls.

Linda in Calif.

Wow!! I'm so impressed! It's really lovely!!! I like the crystals too - and the little circles along the edge of the tracks.






THE SNOWSTORM IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION. WE ARE ALREADY BURIED!!! in Wisconsin. Nothing is moving. To go from here to the barn is knee deep and biting ice on my face.


you guys did a great job with this challenge. Your trees look wonderful!!! My goal is to get over myself and get in to FMQ this year too.


This is freakin' BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!

Caroll D

Wow! I love what you've done. The free piecing and the free motion quilting are fantastic. I love the trees. You did a fantastic job. I love this kind of thing.


Excuse me... that is freakin gorgeous... what character and depth... and I so like it better after all your fmq!


Love it, Stephanie!! You did a phenomenal job! It's so striking! I think it's very abstract. It's a perfect example of intuitive angle piecing!! The crystals were the perfect added touch too, Oh and your fmq is fabulous! You really did a great job enhancing it with the quilting!

Maggie Szafranski

LOVE IT! The FMQ trees are awesome! The crystals are a great touch! It is a great piece!

I was checking facebook this morning. I'm friends with Aurifill Threads. And in their post this morning there was a picture of this wonderful quilt and a link to your blog. Way to go.


PS - I love your whole project. I can't believe I could have even known where to begin -You have Talent! And the back looks like a Wisconsin field-love it. Our snow today is over my head! Took pictures -Will send.
