Sew & Tell….Weather Quilt

Weather Quilt Close Up

One of our customers Salli brought in this fabulous quilt top.  It has 365 strips each one representing the weather & temperature for a single consecutive day in 2015.  The pattern is simple and the colours are delightful and pleasing to the eye as nature always is.
