I’ve been missing the mountains, but it’s been snowing the last two Sundays and gearing up to go out in the snow just hits different at the end of January vs. at the beginning of November.

So we stayed home and I started quilting my chore coat:

My long black quilted coat used a thin cotton batting and I absolutely paved that thing with quilting–so for this completely different quilted coat, I used a really hi-loft polyester batting and am just outlining the sawtooth stars. And boy is it puffy!

I am going to be so warm. Warm and bulky. Quilt bros will understand.
