As I was visiting some of my favorite blogs today I stumbled across a Blogger's Quilt festival that was just starting up! You can enter a quilt for a chance to win prizes! I decided that I want to enter my most favorite quilt that I have done so far I just posted a pretty lengthy post about it awhile back so bare with me if you already read that one.
The quilt I am entering is my Hot Chocolate Snowman Applique Quilt. It was designed by Pearl Louise. Its 60 x 60 and is a great lap quilt.
I started this quilt about 8 years ago as a block of the month. When I started it I was a beginning quilter. I very quickly got overwhelmed and put it away after only doing about 4-5 of the blocks. I took it back out last summer and decided to finish it up. I had a blast doing it. So different from when I started it. It was such a fun quilt to make with lots of small cute details. All the faces are hand embroidery.
It is all machine appliqued with a blanket stitch and it was quilted on my Husqvarna Viking Tribute 140c. I used Isacord and Superior masterpiece thread depending on the color needed.
I love the igloo. The blocks were all done free hand.
And a full shot!
