A Blue Christmas



I chose to use these beautiful blue strips provided by Island Batik for my November Ambassador winter wonderland challenge for Island Batik.


 
I trimmed them all up to 2 1/4" strips, they were in the right length of 20".  I sewed them all together on the long sides and cut an 8" slice off and flipped it end for end and sewed back together.

 Time for the quilting which needed to look like wind blowing the snowflakes around. Therefore, hook swirl to the rescue! I also appliqued 3 white felt snowflakes after I quilted the top.  I appliqued them on using my Nolting Funquilter.  I really was planning on doing a tutorial and I totally forgot to take pictures!!

The more I work with these gorgeous fabrics the more I fall in love with them. They have such a wonderful feel and the prints are so awesome, thanks Island Batik!

Don't cha just love that the Winter Wonderland logo matches my table runner!  The runner measures 36" x 18.

  5. Lovely blues for a wintery little quilt! Great idea to attach the applique after quilting...simpler than quilting around all the nooks and crannies. This might get me to try some applique :)

  8. This is beautiful, Vicki. It makes me want to go grab a cup of hot peppermint cocoa. I love the effect of adding the applique after the quilting. The snowflakes look like they are floating in the sky.
