It's been a while since I posted!! Today I am sharing my Snow Blossoms quilt. The pattern is by Lela Boutique and I just love it. Like many of the quilts I've made recently it features over sized traditional blocks, which is a look I love. Modern traditionalism is my cup of tea.
I was motivated to start this quilt last year wen Kelbysews started a quilt along on Instagram for Halloween. I knew I wanted this to be my Fall quilt, and chose my fabrics accordingly and mostly from stash (cue the choir of angels). I am pretty sure I didn't finish in time for the prizes but I still think its fun to participate in virtual groups. I find it motivational and inspiring to see what others are doing and its nice to comment and follow along.
This quilt actually took me longer than most. Cold basement plus newish knitting hobby is to blame. I could not believe the amount of fraying on this quilt. The fabrics were from all different manufacturer so I can't point to one or the other. I really think it was just the increased production time that took its toll on these blocks. My Mom and I had to give it a haircut before sending it off to be quilted - it was nuts!
The quilt was quilted by Crinklelove in a sort of flame/smokey design that evokes Halloween to me. The border is an Anna Maria Horner Dowry print and the binding is a Julianna Horner print from Joann's. The backing is this fun Alexander Henry print called Day of the Dead Frida Baile de Calaveres and I think it is perfect for a Fall/Halloween quilt!
I am so very happy with this quilt and am pleased and the large size (approx 83 x 83 inches).
Perfect for snuggling with kiddo on the couch! Thanks for stopping by!
