You've probably seen the various components coming together. As I played along, I did not post pictures to Cindy's flicker page. Since I was negligent in that area, I thought it would be nice to participate in the blog hop. The hop goes on for 3 days and includes these ladies on the following days:
As far as mine goes....for whatever reason...getting a nice centered picture is hard to do while the quilt is spread on the floor. It's the dead of winter so pictures need to be wherever the light is good...not necessarily where the quilt positioning is at its best.
The first row...the one that drew me in...was the snowmen. Love snowmen and these little fellas are so darn cute. ('Fellas'....guess I'm channeling my grandmother who called men 'fellas')
Some quilters added embellishments to their cups but I just really liked the red with the snowflake quilting. My red fabric is actually a deeper red than you see here.
Embellishing the middle part was the most fun.
I keep thinking my snowman needs a hat or ear muffs but....honestly....you have to stop somewhere.
I used some plaid green wool to make the wreath on the door. Oh no! The picture is sideways! Can I just say...it's a wreath...it's round...it looks the same when right side up. Any blogger knows that once a picture is in place it is a nightmare to add a new picture and get it in place.
I used snowflake buttons to create the snow.
They were cute and easy to add...once I convinced the cats they weren't toys.
On the top part I just used quilting to add some embellishing.
I quilted some laces on the skates...
...and a string to connect the lights.
It was a fun quilt to make...with clear and easy-to-follow instructions. Thank you, Cindy, for doing that for us.
