Welcome to all the new followers who joined us over the last few days from The Quilting Board. (Thanks, too to those who shared our tutorials there! I always appreciate the “shout-out”)
I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s free motion quilt tutorial, The Snowflake. Here in Minnesota, January is practically synonymous with being preoccupied with temperature (currently -19F) and snowfall. So bear with me, if I bring you another Snowflake Quilt…
This little quilt is 20 inches square and was stitched on my Bernina 820 domestic sewing machine. I used Aurifil in the bobbin and Sulky on top.
I used an child’s stencil to create the snowflakes.
When I was finished quilting, I thought a few beads and sequins would add a little sparkle–like snow crystals. I spread them randomly around the quilt and hand stitched them in place.
I’m going to try to add a little ribbon border as my binding, but am still working that out…
While many Minnesotans embrace winter by skiing, snow shoeing, etc…I embrace winter by quilting!
What do you do to get through winter?
