Brrr! quilt top and a giveaway

This weekend I got a quick little quilt top sewn up using the Brrr! fabric by Laurie Wisburn. The wind would not cooperate with me at all while I was taking this photo, but you get the idea…


You all know that I’m not one to use a ton of patterned fabrics but I felt that a little went a long way with this adorable line. Even my husband thinks it’s really cute. Guess we’ll be keeping this one for the lil’ guy on the way!


Oh but hey! There’s something for you too!


How about fat quarters of the whole line? Drop me a comment and I’ll be picking a winner at random on Friday the 6th. Good luck!

    Those polar bears are adorable. And now I have “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in my head. :)

    I think this is a fabulous use of prints. I’m a big fan of fussy cutting when the print is worth it, but generally lean towards solids myself. But Brr is great! Too cute.

    I love these polar bears: they’re wintery but not too Christmassy!

    I love Laurie’s new line! It is just so cute. What a great Christmas quilt it would make — or cute stockings — or a table runner — or pillows. :)
