My client Heather calls this the Snowflake quilt and you can see why! The blocks and fabrics she chose definitely give the quilt a wintery snowflake look. The print fabric has a silver metallic detail which really give the quilt some sparkle. I quilted the center of the quilt with the Flurry panto and custom quilted the borders. Quilters Dream Blend batting, white and navy So Fine thread, and the bobbin thread is a light blue Bottom line to match the backing. Didn’t get a picture of the backing as it was so cold out this morning (-37’ windchill) so it was a quick photo shoot! That is one of the reasons my blog has been quieter than usually this past month, just too cold to get good pictures outside! Also I had another root canal done last week that really affected my week as it was more painful than the other ones. Still not feeling 100% but hope things will start improving with the dental issues soon!
I quilted the corner blocks in the border to look like snowflakes with some diamond and linear shapes plus added a few curved designs.
Quilted a simple cross hatch in the inner border, large swirl in the middle border and a open feather in the outer border.
