Back on Track

I'm finally getting back on track with blogging and sewing.  The holidays seem to wipe me out. Got back to my yoga class this morning and I already feel better.
I have several finishes for the 4th Qtr FAL that I have not written about yet.  Today, it's the snowman wall hanging that was finished last month.

The pattern set is called Winter Trio by Edyta Sitar.  I purchased the pattern and 2 fabric kits a couple of years ago and then proceeded to forget about them.  
It's all raw-edge applique. I stitched 1/8 inch in from the edges of each piece and did some stippling in the background.  This was a very easy project and very forgiving.  It was nice to take a break from trying to match points and seams.  The fabric kit contained batiks, but I think this would be really nice made from other quilting cottons.  Maybe next year.  Maybe not.
It may sound strange, but I enjoyed cutting out all the little angles and lines on the snowflakes.  Just like trimming, it's a zen thing for me.
The piece measures 16" x 24". 

Lots more to blog about, but that's it for today.  Off to have tea with Mom and the sisters.

Joyful stitching,

  1. Hi Jane! Lovely snowman quilt! So well done. I have been wanting to tell you that I get compliments ALL of the time regarding the potholders and apron you made me. Such a good remembrance of my time in BMQG. Thanks again!
