As you are proably aware, Frozen is a big hit here amongst the
younger kids. My niece has jumped on the bandwagon too.
Although this isn’t for my niece, I am hoping that some young lady
will beg her parents for it. The youth group at my Church is having a
silent auction at the end of the month. What other item would
I put into an auction than a quilt?
The panel was purchased at Fabricland. I know that is a bad word
amongst quilters but it was the only place I saw one. Fabricland even
supplied a pattern for you to follow to make the quilt.
I changed it a little because I didn’t have a lot of time to make it.
I added the white border, as one solid piece and the outer blue border.
The blue fabric also matches the panel and was purchased at Fabricland
In the white border, I used some thin silver fabric, again purchased at Fabricland.
Because it was so thin and flimsy, I added Steam A Seam to the back of it, by
ironing it on. Then all I had to do was cut it out and iron it onto the border.
I later stitched around each snowflake with a silver zigzag stitch. I even stitched
this on my longarm because it drives me crazy to do it on my domestic machine.
As you can see, I also switched up the snowflakes and stitched some in a dark
grey thread. I did try the silver metallic thread but ran into tension issues.
In the inner burgundy border, I thought that swirls would be good, as a
reminder fo the cold wind that blows in the winter time. I am glad that
is over right now.
In the outer blue border, I followed the design of the print. I really
couldn’t think of what to stitch in that space so I went with the print.
In the center of the panel, I merely followed the pattern itself.
That was actually fun to do. I even stitched in the braids for the girl
on the right. I know their names are Anna and Olga but I don’t know
which one is which.
There was a pink and white flannel for the back.
I used a variety of threads too. Polyester, Glide, and Metro threads were
all used. Some young lady is going to go home happy at the end of the
Have a great week.

It sure is a craze, I don’t have any young children around me but even I am aware of it, so that’s saying something! I think making an heirloom version of this craze into a quilt is the nicest thing and I hope someone bids highly on it, I think its gorgeous and will make some little girl SO happy. What a blessing.
I have made way too many Frozen quilts and I am still not through, but none of mine compare in beauty to yours. I haven’t even blogged about one quilt made with this panel, 2 Olafs and a medley quilt. One grandmother wanted one for each of her grandchildren because I hated them so much by the time I finished.
Elsa is the blonde and Anna is the brunette (got a crazed fan myself) 🙂
Your comment made me laugh. Yes, those crazy kids. And what we don’t do to keep them happy-ha!
