Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

A Snowman Quilt Top.

Posted on | October 21, 2011 | 16 Comments

At the very end of last year I was extremely lucky to win some beautifully embroidered blocks. They are a collection of snowmen, reindeer and Christmas trees.

The beautiful stitching was done by Pauline of Quilt n Queen. Pauline does the most amazing stitching. She generously had a give away last year of eight of these blocks that used designs from Bird Brain Designs.  This particular pattern is Snowmen and Reindeer blue work.

So over time this year I have been putting together a collection of blue fabrics to use in a quilt for these stitcheries.

This quilt top is the end result.

I used the same fabric to frame each block. It has an ice crystal look about it.

Here are some of the blue fabrics.

The pattern I have used is called Perfect Ten and is from Swirly Girls Design.

I am planning to free motion quilt this with lots of loops and swirls and stars.

I am really pleased with the collection of blue fabrics and love the way the embroidered blocks stand out in the quilt top.

Once again, a huge thank you to Pauline for these amazing stitcheries.  Pay her a visit and see the rest of her wonderful work.
