    This block was made from the photo I took in January 2011 from our dining room window. The fresh snow fall doesn't have many foot prints in it yet and sits like a blanket over everything.

    The contest is to make a block in the theme Winter Wonderland, and to use the blue snowflake and white snowflake fabrics, with whatever else you can add. The idea is to make a scene of something you like in the winter, or a nice memory - I like our farm in any season, and the block is titled The Farm in Hibernation.

    Hope I win! Janie

    The sky wasn't paper pieced, just strips and odd angles, and I like the way everything angles out to the right, which is west.

    Wow! This is really nice! I hope you win! I am very inspired by your block because this week I sketched my dad's barnyard and started contemplating how I was going to translate it into fabric. I'm going to bookmark this post and refer to it when I need a little boost in confidence!

    I've put the project off because I decided my sister needed a wall quilt featuring a boxer. She has three boxers now and, in the past, bred and sold boxers. (She's ill and could use the love.)

    Again, I hope you win! Love the block and the use of fabric!

    You captured the serenity the new fallen snow draped across your farm. Beautiful work of art. Thanks for sharing.
