Crabapple Hill's Snow Day's Quilt

Isn't this quilt beautiful??? The pattern is called Snow Days and its put out by Crabapple Hill Studio.

Donna sent it up for me to play on.  I got it loaded and then I just stared at it--for THREE days!!  I was stumped. I wanted to treat the outside border as if it were a solid, rather than pieced, border. With the embroidery overlapping into those blocks, I felt that was the best design idea. However, once that was decided, I couldn't come up with a design I liked.  Finally, I settled on swirls with sort of a feathered flower. (Sorry about the wonky pics--most of these were taken while I was unloading.)

Then I stitched around the applique to make it pop...

Finally, the blocks in the center were quilted. I did many designs with enough similarities to tie them all together. You'll definitely see some Angela Walters' designs peeking through.

This was such a fun quilt to work on!!
