Back in July, Yvonne who blogs at Quilting Jet Girl launched a quilt along for her gorgeous Snowflake Shimmer pattern. I just had to jump on that one - the design is just so beautiful!
I'm so happy to have finished this one in time for the final link-up! And bonus - I absolutely love it!
I chose three Kona solids to make my Snowflake Shimmer: Charcoal for the background, Ash for the middle stars and White for the snowflake.
For the quilting, I was inspired by Yvonne who quilted hers pretty densely. I went with some dot to dot designs in the snowflake, pebbles in the stars and a large stipple in the background.
For the backing, I chose to use a inexpensive sheet in a beautiful lavender colour. I just love how the quilting shows up on the back.
I used matching Aurifil thread on the top and bobbin so although the thread blends in very nicely on the top, you can see all the details on the back.
The finished quilt measures about 72 1/2" x 88 1/2". I really, really, really want to keep this one just for me, but I've already gotten comments from my sweetie that it would look perfect in the living room at the island house on the new grey couch. He's right - it would look awesome there.
I will be linking up with everyone else participating in the QAL over at Quilting Jet Girl.
And this was project number 4 on my Q3 2016 FAL list so I'll be linking up there too.
And I will be sharing this finish over at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Celtic Thistle Stitches for TGIFF.
