There are many traditional quilts with zig zag patterns. These are often called “Streak of Lightning” and they are some of my favorites. This quilt is my own version of a Streak of Lightening quilt. It is called “Thundersnow” in memory of a strange and dramatic snowstorm that hit Chicago as I was piecing it. The storm included blizzard-like snow and wind but also thunder and lightning, an extremely rare occurrence. This quilt is my tribute to the drama of Chicago in winter.
