This is Robin’s Arabella qult and you can find this pattern free to download here.
I was excited to try a new panto called Sweet Pea by Urban Elementz. The fabrics in this quilt have a leaf theme so I knew I wanted to quilt it with a leaf design, also I knew Robin likes leaves! It was a bit tricky to quilt out as I had to focus really hard in remembering which side of the curls I was quilting so I didn’t follow the same line back out of the curl. But after a few rows I found my groove.
The backing was a dark brown paisley design.
There is now about 8” of inch of ice so very safe to walk on. As Tim and I were shovelling off the rink the ice was talking to us with soft cracking and popping sounds. I think a normal person would probably run for shore but when your use to hearing the loud echoing sounds of the ice cracking at night,even when your in the house, you become use to this sound! The sound is just expansion as the lake builds ice.
But when I’m standing out there and hear the cracking sounds under my feet it definitely gives me a bit of an adrenaline rush ….so I just shovel faster. ;)
