Snow Globe Quilts

I've been out in California for a week while it
continues to be winter in Kansas.
We've had a lot of snow these past two winters.
Hard on the shortlegged...
And the short tempered.

But if you have snow, make snow globes.
Here's a quilt by Marie Schmidt
using the snow globe pattern in my book
Sew Into Sports.



She found Christmas prints, winter scenes and other themes important in her family life.
The quilt was made for her grandson.

It's a good project to use with the Let it Snow
collection from Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda.
Beautiful batiks.

See some sports-themed snow globes at this post

Clever idea, esp with the photo up top with the dog in the snow!
That Go circle cutter could work well here.....

I like the snow globe idea and using prints, so many possibilities.
