A Frosty, Flimsy Finish

I was up late last night pushing to finish up the holiday shop sample. I liked the top until I got to the borders…I realize now that I really hate borders.

The quilt top is made using fabrics from the collection Holiday Frost by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass. The pattern was a freebie from Henry Glass and it used the panel in the collection.

The pattern was very straight forward, though monotonous at times. One thing that’s weird in the pattern is that the star points closest to the border are noticeably smaller than the rest of the points. Personally, it drove me insane! I also had issues with the sashing being longer than the panels, so there is a lot of puckers. Hmm, I wonder if it was me or the pattern..?

Speaking of the panels, these critters are absolutely adorable!

My favorite has to be the owl though. He looks so peaceful!!

As cute as the quilt is, it was a pain in my bottom and I’m glad its gone!

A New WIP

Because I can’t sit still, last weekend I volunteered to make a shop sample for my LQS. Both the fabrics and pattern are absolutely adorable!

I really like how quick the panel quilts come together!

My goal is to have it done for next Monday…. I think I can do it!
