Christmas Countdown! Day Six

 Winter Wonderland by Crabapple Hill Design Studio.
This was completed in 2008 just in time to hang in our local quilt show. It measures 64" x 71.5".

Doesn't everyone love this pattern? The original pattern is done in red, but you know I"m a blue person!
It just seems to me that winter is blue aka COLD!
We did this quilt one year as a Stitch Therapy project.
I was a lot of fun to see the different versions.

Meg's artwork is so adorable and cute.
There are hundreds of cobalt colored Swarovski hot-fix crystals on the quilt.
Instead of French Knots on the snowflakes, I substituted the tiny crystals.

I used iridescent thread to quilt some snowflakes in the border.

If you have the pattern, you know there is a "bonus" block that Meg suggests you put wherever you please.
Since this little snowman is on a sled, he slid off the center into the border!
I don't usually put this much effort into my labels, but Winter Wonderland needed a special one.  


  1. The label was a cute surprise and well worth the effort. You're right, we all love this pattern and the crystals are a nice touch.

  2. Lovely quilt and beautiful blue embroidery--one of these quilts "over the river and through the woods" is on my 2014 list...hugs, Julierose

  3. SUCH a special quilt! I love Meg Hawkey's designs and you have done this quilt so beautifully. I so enjoying your Christmas Countdown - thanks.

  4. How big will the graph alone be? Thank you
