My January Quilt

The Christmas quilt is gone and hanging for the first time is one of the quilts from Scrap-Basket Sensations - Northern Comfort. Thanks for all the wonderful comments on Kim's new book. It's been fun seeing how excited people have been. This quilt looks so perfect in my living room and is a perfect January quilt.
Kind of wintery looking but warm and inviting. The chair doesn't look this purply-red in real life so the quilt looks wonderful. It will be hard not to pull it down and cuddle under it. It's a good thing I have a few other quilts lying around LOL! It was 23 degrees in Pensacola a few days ago!! But no snow - my DH was so disappointed!
Here's a close up of the quilting. Hope you all are staying warm and having a wonderful Saturday.
Until next time,
-Karen

You couldn't have chosen a more perfect quilt for this time of the year and the room. The colors are warm and comforting. It really does belong right there.
Do you quilt your own quilts?

Your quilt is lovely, and does match the decor of the room perfectly. I can see how you would be tempted to pull it down and snuggle under it! Changing out quilts with the season is truly one of the joys of quilting.
