Quilting 'Snow Happens'

I still don't have the binding finished on Snow Happens but several friends asked me how I quilted the piece. So here goes: the sky has loopy loops and the snow has gentle curves  Machine stippling is outside the inner blue border. I stitched in the ditch around the squares. I thought about stitching snowflakes in the sky but, as my granddaughter often says, 'I'm done' !!!!

Here are a few links to check:


  1. I think you chose a perfect quilting pattern - the swirls look like snow falling and blowing around in the wind.

  2. I think the swirls look great. I am just starting to get into free motion quilting and I am finding that It is easy to over do it. Less is more. I enjoy your blog. I have missed the links lately but life does get in the way.

  3. It's it.
