It was my one year anniversary of this blog on the 26th. So, in celebration
of that milestone, I am giving away a snowman pattern.
It is really cute and so fitting for this time of the year.
You must leave a comment concerning 1 thing you like about quilting
blogs and 1 thing you dislike about quilting blogs. For example, I really
like the pictures of quilts, great eye candy. However, I dislike a post that
goes on forever-short and sweet for me, please.
These past 2 weeks, I have been working on Lynn’s Woodland Creatures.
What a beautiful applique quilt!
The animals were great and Lynn did a great job with her applique.
She has alot of patience-I don’t think that I would want to take on
such a huge project. It is stunning!!
I did have fun adding a few interesting items to the top-
the lily pad, for instance. And I added a spider’s web to
match one on the other side of the outer border.
Those were the fun parts. I did a mixed bag of free motion
quilting for the outer border.
It consisted of swirls, feathers, pebbles and eyes. I carried the

I did meandering-to break up the background areas a little.
And, of course, I had to add some feathers somewhere on the
This quilt measured in at a whopping 80″x 102″.
I think that is correct-Lynn will let me know if I am wrong.
Blue polyester thread was used for the top and backing.
The total number of hours is approximately between 30-40 hours.
Now, that this baby is finished, I am working on my Trend Tex
Hoping to have it all quilted up and ready to post by next week.
Besides that, I have the itch to try something different so I am
thinking about painting a quilt top. Yeah, it sounds crazy to me too
but I think I am up for a change.
Oh, please remember to leave an email address so I can contact you
if you win the pattern. I am planning on making the draw on Friday,
Jan 31. Good luck!!
Don’t forget to head over to Freshly Pieced for some more eye
candy as well.
