This is Better

Remember this? I had asked for some feedback on this quilt top. I wasn't liking it, so I had asked for ideas. You all had a lot of good feedback! I kind of knew I needed to set it aside and wait for inspiration. The main help your feedback gave me was "permission" to do a little un-sewing and think in different ways about it. So.. I came up with this, and I'm much happier with it. I'm going to hang it at work and hope its karma works and gives us a snow day this year. (Haven't had one in eons.)

it's adorable - so glad you played with it. good luck with the snow day, though you do realize that means you have to have lots of snow right? eeek.

Now I have a totally opposite reaction to snow days -- I feel like the kid in the toboggan reveling in the white stuff. A snow day means all regular activities are suspended, and you get to enjoy the white stuff. I had many good snow days when I was a kid, but both of mine got through elementary school without one snow day. They always had to get to school, no matter what the conditions. It's a great little quilt, and all of us northerners get it. Sorry Tonya!

Much better: it is all in proportion and scale to itself. Cute!

Very nice quilt! How do you do the letters? Is there a pattern for these somewhere? Good luck with your Snow Day! More snow is on its way. At least that is what I heard on the weather channel.
