This week’s Mixed Media Monday challenge was “Frosty.” Here in Louisville, we have almost completely avoided that concept so far this year. Frost (and the coming holiday) makes me think of snow, so I decided to cut out some snowflakes in fabric, fuse them to a blue background and free-motion quilt the entire piece. Once I finished, and looked at my snowflakes, I thought of the wonderful quiet the world takes on when snow falls and dampens all noise. Consequently, I printed the word “peace” on organza and attached it to the bottom corner. I thought this peaceful scene deserved a little sparkle, so I added some silver-tone leaf charms to fall along with the snow.

Snow falls, blanketing the world in peace and quiet.
