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.

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.
