Things never do seem to be as hard to quilt as I expect them to be--once I can finally decide what to quilt. So why do I not learn that lesson once and for all?
Mini Warm Winter Blessings is completed and I am so happy to have it finished.
Had to hang it in my sewing room for a photo, even though it is rather out of season.
I bought the kit at a workshop with Lisa Bongean in January of 2013. The top did not get made until January 2015. If I had never seen Linda Hrcka's quilting on Lisa's original I may not have been so hesitant to begin the quilting. I pinned Linda's work and pondered it multiple times. What I did here is not an exact copy, but it is definitely inspired by her work.
Each snowman background is a little different. Here is a peek at a few of them. You can click for a closer view.
Of course, I feathered the border.
This shows you a comparison between the large size quilt block (which I made into a pillow) and the mini quilt.
I will end with my new favorite thing in my sewing room--my new Ott-Lite over my cutting table. I LOVE it!!The bright LED ring of light shines over the whole table area, and the hinged neck allows me to raise, lower and angle it as needed.
While the Ott-lites are 50% at Jo~Ann next week I am taking DH in on Wednesday when they have a senior discount day with another 20% off your purchase. I'm going to have him purchase another one for my quilting table (I don't quite qualify as a senior). Doesn't that sound like a fun date? : )
Until next time,
