Hello my quilty friends! I have a finish for you today. This one is going to be for my family and it will be our winter quilt.
This adorable pattern is by-Sherri Noel over at I quilt patterns. The quilt pattern is called Scandinavian Tomte quilt and it goes together rather fast. I just love red and white quilts...don't you?
And every time I see this this cute guy I smile!
Here is a look at one of the 3 trees, I used 4 different reds for each tree.
I was a little nervous about washing this quilt...because of my experience with my last red quilt. But, as I learned it is about the fabric. I have to say it is all American made fabric and the red bleed a little but, not into my white. I used about 6 color catchers in the wash, washed in cold water with vinegar and no bleeding into the white. *Happy Dance*!
I had it quilted in white thread in this beautiful snowflake pattern. The quilting is done by talented quilting friend Diane- At Creative Stitching Services. If you live in MI (SW-Detroit suburbs) check her out. I had this beauty back the next day as well as a pillow and another small throw. I was amazed at how fast she got these done!
Here is another look at the beautiful snowflakes that really show up on the snuggly red flannel backing.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!
