Oh my goodness--the snow is just not stopping!
It's beautiful, but I am ready for it to all go away--soon!
This is a view to the North.
A view of Moose Bay from our living room-East.
|This is a view to the South.|
Okay, enough of that!
I checked out the label on my Winter Wonderland quilt, and it was finished in 2008.
|The Snow Angel was my very first block.|
It didn't make it into the quilt, though.
After I finished the block, I decided it wasn't the right shade of blue: DMC 798.
|This is the same block in the color I ended up using for all the blocks in the finished quilt: |
|You can see how different they are here.|
The orphan block made the perfect center for a little wall hanging that I entered in a contest in 2010.
I won a $25 gift certificate!!
|I added a few borders (snowballs naturally!) and quilted little snowflakes in the outer border.|
I made sure not to quilt through the embroidery this time,
so I didn't have to spend ages coloring over the white threads.
My quilting is really bad--you can see the tension as I try to decide which way to go next!
I fused clear crystals on the quilted snowflakes for this quilt.
|If you have the pattern for Winter Wonderland, |
you know there is an extra block that Meg Hawkey challenges you to use somewhere on the quilt.
My little snowman is sliding out of the center and into the border.
