Let it Snow, Let Me Sew!

Well we had a lovely snowfall here on the eastern shore of Maryland and it was beautiful as it fell. The best part is that while it looked pretty in the yard, it didn't muck up the roads!!!


Can you think of a better way to spend a snowy afternoon than quilting away??? I finished quilting the quilt that was on the frame. I had a little hiccup while I was quilting it last weekend and had to spend more than 8 hours ripping out a whole pass of a panto. But I finished doing that and finished the quilting this afternoon. It is now off the frame, folded and in a monster ziploc bag ready to head home to it's owner. The panto is Plumage by Jodi Beamish and I love this panto! It really gives the look of freehand feathers with a nice consistent amount of coverage. I will be using this panto again for sure!

So glad you didn't give up on your quilting...8 hours of unsewing is quite discouraging :(
But you did a great job! I like the swirlyness of the quilting pattern.

Spending the day quilting sounds fabulous! Ripping out a whole row of the panto, not so much! Your quilt is beautiful.

Glad you got it finished - ripping is never fun.

I really like this panto too - I've just used it the once on my Ice Cream quilt but I'll be using it again.
