It was a beautiful, crisp winter day yesterday, the perfect day to finish my Warm Winter Blessings quilt and take a few pictures.
I am particularly proud of this quilt, since I made the entire quilt from start to finish myself! Usually I send out my lap/larger quilts to be quilted by my long armer, but this time I wanted to do it myself.
I used my trusty renditions of loop de loop free motion quilting in the backgrounds and borders and added a little "oomph" with the cross hatching I used in the triple sashings - which, by the way, took forever and a day! There was a lot of handling the quilt and pushing and shoving it around while using my Pfaff, but luckily my appliques were well attached!
The sun was shining through the slats of the fence so you can't see the quilting very well on the blue border. I used the same loop de loop design, just made it a little larger and matched my thread. The quilting doesn't show up that well in the picture, but the texture is just what I wanted.
Warm Winter Blessings is a quilt designed by Lisa Bongean . This is another one of my favorites ever quilt!
Thanks so much for coming by today. It's a great day for quilting!
