This is Marianne’s Twisted Nine Patch quilt and she asked for a piano key design in the outer border and a pantograph in the center. I asked her if she had a pantograph design in mind and she said Plush, which I agreed would look great on this quilt. I used grey So Fine thread on top and grey Bottom Line on the back.
She sent a black Cuddle wide backing and Hobbs batting to make a very cuddly quilt! I love that Cuddle now comes in extra wide widths so you don’t get the bulk of a seam on the back.
I was out taking pictures on Sunday and Tim spotted 3 ptarmigan on the side of the road. It’s not uncommon to see these birds here but hard to spot as they blend into the snow so well! I think these were Willow Ptarmigans as when they flew away you could see their black tails. I was hoping to get all three in one pictures but only managed to get these two. They can move pretty fast in the snow!
