Snowy Christmas Quilt Story

Occasionally, I will try to share a quilt story with you. Most of these will be customer quilts which I have quilted and have the permission to share about, other times they will be my own quilts, or even charity quilts. The first, is one I completed just before Christmas for my friend Eva Marie.

The best full shot of this "too large for one person to hold" Zig Zag Christmas Quilt we could manage!

Eva Marie had a bee in her bonnet last Christmas about finishing mountains of projects and gifts, and then using up her Christmas fabric scraps! This quilt was made entirely from scraps, and then she even had enough left over for another entire Post-Christmas quilt! 

A nice view of sparkling snowflakes.

It was a bit of a last minute idea to make this quilt, but I was able to get it on and off the frame in about three days. Her daughter, Cate, was the excited recipient and  Eva Marie was able to get it bound for her just in time for the week of Christmas! Something about quilting these beautiful snowflakes and helping to make a last-minute Christmas miracle really put me in the holiday spirit, I almost made a Christmas quilt myself! Maybe this year?

I loved the variety of snowflakes included in this particular quilting design.

Details: This quilt was quilted with the edge-to-edge quilting design "Sparkling Snowflakes" designed by Randy Brunette using Superior So Fine #50 thread.
