Can you believe I am texting and surfing the Internet while in-flight??? I paid $8 for Internet. What a deal!!! This is my third post this morning. If you scroll down, you can see more regarding the quilt, Winter Blessings. I am using the Blogger App, so all my photos post at the end of the post.
Specifics on the quilt...I double batted to really make the appliqué, piecing and quilting pop. I used a layer of Hobbs 80/20 over Dream Blend. Yes, I quilted on the Snowmen (Paulette :--)).. That really gives the snowmen dimension and life. I never have issues longarming on wool. The threads are a Navy thread from Connecting Threads. It is comparable to So Fine by Superior. It quilted beautifully!!!! I did not use So Fine because their Navy was not dark enough. The Connecting Threads thread was Perfect!
I even quilted Lisa's initials into the quilt. It was a little surprise for her. She noticed it immediately. And loved it. :-)
The quilting looked gorgeous from the back as well!!! The pattern is available to order from Primitive Gatherings online under the "new" tab. The fabric and kits, however will not be available until next spring. I have already received some emails inquiring. :-)
Stay tuned for more posts. :-)
