Another Finish!

Today, I am officially 8 blocks behind on the 365 Challenge Blocks (these are from the previous week). Why? I've been busy quilting! Oh, and there was a holiday in the mix too--lol! 

I'm pretty excited to have Let It Snow finished and ready to hang for the rest of the winter--even though I don't totally agree with it's sentiment-- I'm really am happy with the amount of snow we already have! 

It's a total snow storm on the back! 
Let It Snow was on my fourth quarter Finish-A-Long list HERE. It was a free Block of the Month from Buttermilk Basin during 2016.
FYI:  I changed up the finishing instructions by using parts from other blocks to make the top area of trees and the snowman. I also added a narrow border pine branch using part of the cardinal block so my quilt would be a bit more rectangular.

  2. Beautiful finish! Is that a skinny inner border or big stitches around the inner quilt? It looks like a nice accent but can't tell what makes it :-)

  13. I love your Let It Snow! (And I agree - maybe you should have added a lower border that says "Somewhere else...")

  18. I, too, love the finish on your Let It Snow variation. I absolutely love the pine 'branch' addition. I hope you won't mind if I do something similar. Please do let me know if it would bother you.
