Winter Sky Quilt
Constance helped choose a simple snowflake embroidery pattern to hold the layers together…
…and a bright blue binding to finish the edges.
She stitched first the front and then the back…!
The quilt is done!
Constance was proud of it! She explained how we made the quilt…Arianell listened with rapt attention…she’d like to try quilting. Rose thinks she’ll stick to knitting, though she may try that colour combination in her next pair of “Hitty Sleeping Bags”. All Min can think of to say is Wow!
When you lie on the ground and look at the sky, do you ever have the feeling you aren’t really sure which way is up?
Absolutely spectacular creation! Min is so right to look at it with such wonder. Thank you for sharing the process and the truly gorgeous result with us!
Thank you very much, we had fun and learned a lot during this quilt-making project…we are always happy to share our fun with you!
Magnificent! A work of splendor and beauty!
Thanks! We are so happy with the way it turned out, and happy you like it! Praise from a quilter is praise indeed!
This is really lovely!!! I love the little snowflake So!!! ❤️❤️❤️
We really like the snowflakes too, we are glad we thought of it, and glad they turned out pretty much the way we envisioned them.
It is a stunning quilt and so similar to what we see looking upward on a wintery night. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us.
Thanks, so much – kind words mean a lot to me, especially from another quilter! I love winter dark when the sky is so clear and the stars so sharp! Making this quilt was very satisfying.
No wonder Constance is proud with her quilt. The added snowflakes on the star and background make this quilt even more spectacular. I’ll go as far as saying,” this is the most gorgeous Hitty quilt I have ever seen.” Truly inspired. Just awesome.
The snowflakes were an inspiration after I had already started “stitch in the ditch” outlining the centre star…it just didn’t look right to me so I unpicked the stitching and pondered what the quilt really wanted. Luckily I thought of the simple snowflakes. It is very satisfying to make such a tiny pretty quilt!
A magnificent quilt. I am in awe. Thank you and Constance.
You are very welcome, we are very pleased with the way it turned out…thank You for your kindness and encouragement…
I am with Min…WOW…Double WoW!!! The addition of the snowflake embroidery is genius!! This quilt is a work of art! you and Constance make a great team.
We thought you’d like the embroidery idea, the quilt seemed to want something subtle enough that it didn’t detract from the pattern, but special enough too. The snowflakes seemed to work – yay! Thanks very much for your constant support!
