Snowmen Quilt

Well I am a little late on this one, but it is still dropping a few snowflakes hear and there a bit in Kansas City, so I suppose it is alright :)

My co-worker made this beautiful quilt for her family annual Christmas gift exchange. Needless to say it was a HUGE hit! Just thought I would share it here in case it inspires you for next years holiday season.

She used our Snowmen pattern for half the blocks. The other half she used a machine embroidery pattern she purchased for the snowflake blocks.

Here is the whole quilt (sorry it isn't the best picture, quilts are so hard to photograph!).

The center block detail. She also used her machine and added the family name and date detail. I think it makes it extra special!

You can purchase this pattern for machine embroidery if you want to make quick of the work. Find it on Oregon Patchworks here.

 A close up. I never think pictures do quilts justice. They are always so lovely in person and then end up looking so flat when you try to photograph them (pun intended). Any one have any tips for taking photos of large items like this?

Well better late then never, right?
Happy Stitching All!
