2013-4: Let It Snow Quilt

Let It snow quiltThis quilt is made from a kit of coordinating fabrics from Reichard’s quilt Store in St. Jacobs Ontario.  The fabrics are from a line of flannels called Let It Snow.  The flannels are a nice heavy weight and were relatively easy to sew, but in general, I prefer to sew with quilters cottons.

It was quilted with a digital pantograph call Snowflake Simple by Nancy Haacke.  It is a fairly dense panto, so I made it as large as my throat space would allow.  I used a cotton covered poly thread on top and a Bottom Line in the bobbin.
