ONLINE QUILT SHOW ENTRY

This is my first online quilt show entry. It's the Bloggers Quilt Festival and it coincides with the 2 major quilt festivals of the year.
  Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.com
 
My entry in the "Throw Quilt" category is my Winter Wonderland quilt I finally finished. 



It took a long time to do all the hand embroidery on these block.  I usually would only work on it in the car during our 10 hour trip from Texas to Missouri to go "back home".  It took me over a year to do them.

 

 
 
 Along the way, I collected fat quarters of blue snowflake fabric to do the blocks. 











 
I collected this border fabric long before I even bought the pattern or thought about making this quilt.  I was just waiting for the right pattern to go along.
 
Lots of different snowflake patterns from lots of different Statler Stitcher Pattern designers were used.

I used Glide Light Torquioisse Blue thread and Glide White thread.  I just love how Glide
 thread looks quilted out on a quilt.  It has just a hint of a shine or glisten.  Just what I needed for the snow.

 Sometimes the back of the quilt is almost as pretty as the front.  I love the random blue quilting that shows on the back. 

QUILT NAME:  WINTER WONDERLAND
