Fleurs de la neige

Originally Les Fleurs Bleu, I thought it appropriate to rename this quilt since I finished it in the middle of a blizzard.

Les fleurs de la neige

Feb. 8, 2013 Snow Storm

I used Spa by Deb Strain and Kona White for the sashing. For the back of the quilt, I used the same fabric as the outer border then stitched in the ditch around the flowers. I’ve learned that the less you stitch, the softer the quilt and I like my quilts soft and snuggly! It measures 77.5″ long by 60.5″ wide, a great size for a twin bed or snuggling on the sofa. I finished the top in August and sandwiched it shortly thereafter but it’s been on the rack ever since. ¬†Yesterday I decided to get my ass in gear to finish some quilts!

It’s a great day for quilting!

Linking up to Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday and this week’s host, Kit Lang.

    • I’ve learned my lesson more than once about whites! I really should have used Kona Snow with this fabric, not Kona White! The difference is more noticeable outside.

  1. My sister saw this and loved it, and has asked me to make her a similar one in a different colourway. I hope you don’t mind me pinching the design – I’m quite new to quilting so not really sure of the ettiquete :D

    PS – is there a pattern or tutorial available that I could use?
