Sew Many Projects, So Little Time

This is showcase of my projects in various stages.

Winter Wonderland

This quilt was designed by Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill Studios and has been a longtime favourite of mine. I signed up to do it as a BOM almost 10 years ago but never made it. Red just wasn't my colour so I bought fabrics to make it in blue. While working on my blue one a friend admired it so, this year, I decided to make her one; the red one.

I started in September of this year piecing the blocks at home on the weekend and doing the embroidery at work during down time. It really helped having a week at retreat in Leavenworth to work on it exclusively. I put it all together last friday and was completely done by 5 this morning due to complications with my machine during the quilting process plus one minor injury (needle through finger).

I am pleased with it. I delivered it just before she left work a short while ago. I'm happy to say she loves it.

Kris,

This is beautiful.  I have the same pattern and am planning on doing it in blue like you said.  But I haven't touch it and it's been probably at least 7 years since I bought the pattern.  Thanks for sharing and motivating me.

Kris this is so beautiful.  I love the redwork!  I would love it in blue too... Your embroidery is just perfect.  I don't know if I will ever get to this level . But you give me the incentive to practice more.  I hope you know what a wonderful and talented quilter you are.

Nice job, Kris. I've seen this pattern done in red, blue and black. It seems to be a favorite of many.
