Winter Wonderland...It's About Time

Alright....  I started this project in 2010 when everyone I knew of was already doing or had done this Crabapple Hill pattern(#408)  in Red and White. I chose blues to keep the feel of a cold winter.  I embroidered on cruise ships, trains and planes as I toured the Baltic. The top has been together for a couple years but finally... time to quilt. When one travels and teaches something different than this fun at-home stuff.... it takes time to get to the machine for finishing...    But I am doing it this week for some peace of mind.  'On the longarm and here we go.
I chose a lofty batting to emphasize the snow and boy is it working. I like it but also know I could have been happy with a slightly lower loft. There are  a bunch of varied sized stars in the wide border. They add fun and challenges on quilting.This quilt will take a couple more days .  

Once I've got one more of my backlogged pieces quilted.... I will start taking in quilting for hire. I guess that's an announcement of sorts.
