journal quilt

I kept with the wintry spirit for this weeks journal quilt 51/52. It is a dye-catcher sheet stained light blue in the wash, it actually caught the dye as it was meant to do. With white silk thread I free-hand machine embroidered the snowflakes, and then with blue metallic thread I stitched the circles. Very simple... Only one more journal quilt to go for 2007! Unbelievable that the year blew by so quickly... I've got my ideas pretty set for the journal quilts of 2008, I will share those very soon. I am also putting together all my journal quilts on one page, it is interesting to see how the all relate to each other. I will share that very soon too...

Merry merry Christmas to all!

Your quilt is much prettier than it is outside! I like that you only quilted the circles only in parts of the quilt -- not all over the background. Merry Christmas!
