Warm Winter Blessings Quilt

Linda made this sweet Warm Winter Blessings quilt, which is a pattern by Primitive Gatherings.  The snowmen are wool machine applique with hand embroidery details.  I did light custom quilting by quilting feather swirls in the outer border, swirls in the inner border and SID in the sashing. I alternated the background quilting in the blocks with a stipple or a gentle vertical wavy lines. 

I used navy and beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream 80/20.  Linda sent a lovely blue-grey Fireside for the backing. 

We had a 12 hour thunderstorm a few nights ago and measured 3 1/2” of rain.  Since we had such a dry summer my opportunities to take lightening photos were rare so enjoyed watching the storm with my camera in hand. 


  1. The cream and then the darker blue borders set off the blocks so well, love those swirls. Lightning, that is one perfect focus on the line, a bit like the artery on my angiogram picture!!!

  2. Cute quilt. Beautiful quilting. Stunning picture!
