Barbara's Snowmen Quilt

This is the second snowman quilt that I have quilted. A group of quilters embroidered the blocks and then all pieced them together in a way of their own. Barbara chose to use lights and darks for the borders and it is a wonderful layout! The patterns were drawn by her niece and what a wonderful collection of snowmen! And a very nice winter quilt!

Snowflakes was the quilting pattern.

Pearl thread was used on this quilt.

The detail in the blocks is so neat!

Embroidering a set of these gentle snowmen is on my bucket list!

A Christmas Quilt for Sven & his family

I have traced my family tree for years and I had some letters written in German and I had them sitting around for years, not knowing what they might reveal. But lucky for me, my daughter got new neighbors and they are from Germany so I asked them if they would translate the letters and they did! I wanted to pay for the translations, but they did not send me a bill with the material so I decided that they needed a quilt!

I had a quilting pattern digitized just for this quilt with snowflakes and Merry Christmas written in English and German. I just hope I've spelled Merry Christmas in German correctly!

I used Ficelle thread.

I hope they like it!

The backing.

Scott's Quilt

Kathy put this UNL quilt together for Scott for Christmas. I am sure he will love it! Very heavy and warm!

Wide piano borders.

The quilting pattern was Amazing.

Cranberry thread was used.

The flannel backing really shows the quilting pattern.

Rick's Quilt

Dee put this quilt together for her brother, Rick! It's a golfing quilt and quite a gem! I am sure he will cherish this quilt! Nice!

She wanted a meandering type quilting pattern with golf clubs so I had this pattern made for this quilt. It has wood, irons, and a putter within the loops.

 Fisherman Red thread was used.

Polka Dot backing is just perfect!
