Snowman Quilt #3

It has been snowing here for the past two day but the sun came out this morning.  I shoveled the ice again as I could hardly see where I had cleared it off a few days ago.

This is the guild third Snowman quilt and we will use this one for an In-House raffle at our Quilt Show in April.  I tried a new batting on this one, it is Quilters Dream Poly Select, the guild bought a whole roll to try.  It makes a much softer lighter quilt and I think this will be great for the guilds quilts as they donate so many and you never know how they are going to be taken care of.  I don't think I would recommend this batting for my clients larger bed quilts as it is not very strong and is quite thin. But for kids quilts that get washed a lot it would be fine.

I used a panto called Flurry. The pattern is called Perfect Ten and the fabric line is called Makin' New Friends. 

Proof I do binding once in awhile for guild project!
Here are the other two quilts the guild made using this fabric. We purchases a 36 fat quarter bundle of this fabric line and got three quilts out of it. Not bad eh!


  1. nice quilting pattern, and it suits the quilt.

  2. I love that panto...and all those quilts are just wonderful! A simple pattern can be so effective.

  3. Linda, from The Quilted Pineapple mentioned you and your blog when I asked her about whether to always match top and bobbin threads on quilts. So over I came and what should I find, your post 24th Nov where you have done what I have done occasionally, at the request of a customer, used a contrasting thread in the bobbin leaving some "pokies" if you looked carefully. Funny coincidence. I'm now going to trawl through your older posts, can't wait! By the way I would have found it really difficult to quilt with a black thread on that yellow backing fabric too!

  4. Can you please tell me the name of this pattern? I have a memory quilt I'm working on and this will be perfect!
