Lee designed the pattern for this quilt based on nordic, "christmas sweater" type designs. I love the blocky, pixelated looking elements, especially the reindeer.
The whole thing got a basic stipple in white thread. When it came time to quilt this one I decided that done is better than elaborate custom quilting :)
As it worked out, I just inherited 2 winter-themed flannel sheet sets. The flat sheet from one went on the back of this. Blue and white snowflakes-- perfect!
|There are in fact 2 shades of white/cream in the poinsettias but the contrast is hard to see.|
