This is Rae’s Winter Blessings quilt and it is a pattern by Primitive Gatherings. All the snowman are created with wool and Rae hand appliqued all the pieces with a beautiful button hole stitch. We decided it needed wool batting it keep with the traditional feel of the project and give it a lofty soft look. Rae will be using this quilt on the back of her couch in the winter so it will be a great way to keep warm in our cold winters.
I quilted curled feathers in the outer border, a swirl in the inner border and stitched in the ditch in the sashing piecing. Since this is a couch quilt I didn’t want to quilt the background of the block to heavy so in the corner and center blocks I quilted wavy vertical lines to add movement of snow falling and in the remaining four blocks I quilted horizontal swirly wavy lines to create a windy night sky look.

We had a dusting of snow yesterday so thought I better take a few pictures of the quilt on the snow too.
