My latest client WIP is a bluework version of “Winter Wonderland” by Crabapple Hill Designs.  This is such a gorgeous pattern that makes a beautiful quilt.  My client did an absolutely beautiful job on this quilt.  She incorporated some Fairy Frost fabric into the blocks and borders.  It looks sooooo pretty.  It really carries out the winter wonderland theme.   I believe it’s her first quilt too!! I’ll be honest…I have been petrified to quilt this quilt.  I kept thinking to myself, “do I stitch on the embroidery?, do I stitch around the embroidery?, what if accidentally get some stitches on the embroidery while I’m trying to stitch around it??? (LOL)…what if??”  Then I received some good advice from my friend Jenny and went for it!
Here are a few sneaky peak photos…

I think my fear of quilting this quilt has subsided!! 🙂

    Are you stitching over the embroidery or just right up to it? What type of quilting thread are you using? It looks wonderful and adds a lot to the quilt.

    I love how you are stitching this quilt. I have made it in red and white but have no clue as to how to quilt it. These pictures are awesome. You do such beautiful work! Those swirls make you think of snow and then I like how you did something different beneath the trees to make it look like land. You are so clever!
