It's a good day to be working on a winter quilt because it's snowing and quite cold outside.
I made two more Northern Lights blocks but I'm not totally satisfied with either of them. I may try one with a darker blue and the turquoise. I can still use the one with the pink too if I feel that the whole work is too cold and needs a touch of a warmer color. The color is really off it this picture. The background is actually white so you can see that everything has a brownish cast.
I still have lots of words that I plan to make including snowflake which may be accompanied by a snowflake block or some snowflake fabric. I have a fat quarter that has blue designs that look a lot like snowflakes. I just need to get the right off-white color to go with it.
I am working on a list of winter words but since I have called it Winter Wonders I'm thinking I'll stick to nature phenomena and not use sports like skiing and sledding.
