Winter quilt done

I put the binding on this quilt last night.  It came out so cute!  Maybe we will get some snow now!
I did the quilting on my two machines.  The snowflakes are embroidery machine patterns that I got years ago.  This year I am going to really focus on learning to quilt nicely so that I'm not so nervous doing my own quilts.  I'm enjoying the process even though I get a little stressed every time I start to quilt something.

Winter quilt center done

I got this kit in Vermont about 5 years ago!  When I went to visit my niece last weekend I saw it hanging on the wall at the quilt store and thought, "hey, I better make mine this week!"  So I came home and got on it.  This is the center.  I have to do the borders and then it will be ready for quilting,

It's so cute.  It calls for hand appliqué, but I just reversed all the patterns and used my machine.  I don't usually like too many snowmen, but this year I got over it. :). I can finish this and leave it up all winter.
