Do you remember my snowman quilt project? Well, I have been busy working on it and I am almost finished with the quilt top:I finished stitching the last two snowmen - one in red: and one in mostly blue: My next step is embroidering on the small squares. I am using images from the Snow! embroidery pattern packetRight now I am adding all the beautiful emroidery stitching over the seams. Here I am using the open cretan stitch: I want to use many different stitches to embellish the seams. I love the way they look. This project has been so much fun and I am learning a lot about quilting. One thing I need to figure out is the order of sewing everything together. I actually sewed all the inside blocks together, sewed all the outside border pieces together (making sort of a frame) and then sewed the frame to the big inside piece. Is this the right process? I would appreciate any tips - here is my quilt plan so you can see the pattern I am using. I will keep posting my progress!
