My goodness – these two quilts have been a long time coming!!! I am so very happy to officially introduce you to Sweater Weather and Mini Sweater Weather!
About the Quilts …
I am so incredibly in love with bringing classic Fair Isle patterns to life with fabric! This design features my favorite Nordic flowers and stems, offset by graphic snowflakes, giving it just enough of a modern edge!
Our giant version, shown here in Quilter Candy Solids from Connecting Threads, finishes right up at 89″ x 89″. It was a bit of a challenge to find a place where I could snap a few pictures, but I just happened to remember that Apple Ridge Farms, one of our absolute favorite Apple Hill destinations, had this gorgeous little duck pond surrounded by hay bales, apple trees, and loads and loads of fall colors everywhere. If you are ever in the Sacramento area in September or October, you have to check them out!
