Winter Quilt

I typically am not a fan of holiday or themed quilts. Mostly because I don't see the point of them when they are only appropriate during the correct season.
But last month I was in Walmart, and walked by the craft section where all their fabrics are. They had these fabrics displayed with this pattern. I just loved it!! :)

And it's not overly "christmasy" since it's not green and red and have christmas stuff on it. This one is just wintery. With trees, snowmen, and snowflakes, plus I love the color scheme.

This was the first quilt I've done that had triangles. I realized they aren't nearly as easy as squares, and can be a bit challenging. I got the hang of it. But will need more practice to get my corners matched up more evenly.

The back is fleece, so it's really warm and soft. :) I think I would have preferred red, but black was all that was available at the time. I do like it though.

It was kinda fun making a seasonal quilt with directional prints... and triangles.
