This is Alene’s Winter Blessing quilt and it is a pattern by Primitive Gatherings. I have quilted this one before and used many of the same elements. This is a cute wool applique quilt and Alene did beautiful hand applique. I stitched in the ditch around all the applique and around all of the wool details. Feather curls in the outer border and simple curls in the inner border. Batting is Quilters Dream Blend and I used beige So Fine and Navy So Fine on top.
I was nice to see the sun this morning after a week of snow. There were sparkling sundogs in the sky and it was nice to be able to use the ice to display my quilts again. I can’t wander to far from the dock, like more than a few steps, as the ice is still very thin from all the snow. You can see the depression in the snow in the center of this next picture, that is from the slush under the ice so not going near there! This picture was taken right beside the dock.
