snow day

snow day pillow: 24" * 24"

We are having a blizzard today. A modest blizzard with a minimum of snow blowing outside. What a perfect setup for my first finish of 2014! The hexagons are big, 3" sides. A mix of Heather Ross flannel pajama parts mixed with white and snow cotton. Quilted and wrapped around the pillow with an envelope back / closure. 


hand pieced, machine quilted big stitches in aurifil 40 weight


envelope back with a good sprinkle of snow

Wish you all stay warm on a cold day!

It's a great mix of flannel and cotton. Love your spare machine quilting. I hope the blizzard brings some pretty blankets of snow.

What a gorgeous cushion! The fabrics go together so well. I'm just restarting my spider web quilt using your great tutorial! I hadn't done any of it since 2010 but I still love it! Thank you again! Lucy x

Hi Marit, I have been following your blog for a long time. I love your use of color. Your quilts are so happy. The "snow day" pillow is really adorable.

What a fun pillow! It looks nice and cozy, except for the actual snow on it. Brr! Love the flannel pj's! With such big hexies, it must go together fairly quickly?
