Keep on Dreaming Quilt - Project Quilting

I always use a white quilt or a sheet as the back drop for my photos. Today, I decided to throw it out in the snow!
I took several photos as the sun was just right.
The snow was just right too.  It was pretty cold today and there was a nice crust of snow, so it wouldn't sink into the snow.
But then the wind caught it...


It rolled over and over until it was face down.


I stitched some words from the lyrics - Keep on Dreaming in the white squares.











So that's my Keep On Dreaming Quilt - Inspired by Project Quilting.
Hope you are having a great weekend!

I love this quilt, and the snow background was just what it needed! I had to laugh at the acrobatics, though.

The snow background it great, that is a most lovely quilt, and the quilting it nice. Do you have a longarm or are you quilting on a reagular sewing machine?

Just lovely - oh, I could picture you following this 'flowing' quilt across the snow! Great touch with the words within the quilt - just very special.

I love the third photo - the way the quilt is situated, the white squares have the same ripply effect as the snow - well done!

While it turned out wonderful even if it thought it was a kite rather then a Quilt.

It is beautiful...and I love that you had fun taking photos outside. Our winter is just not going to happen I think. It's so strange this year. It was 65 degrees today. Hiked with the boys and messed up my knee. LOL figures. Oh well...excuse to catch up on blog reading, right? Phooey on orders anyway.

What a great job you did on this quilt. No snow here, it's all melted. Much better than the 'Blizzard' we had this time last year.
