Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

Modified table runner pattern. Added an extra snowflake block and made two. Used skinny heart shaped buttons for nose.  Added star burst beads to hanging loops.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

Ditch quilted snowman body, then free motion quilted loops inside body using 50wt gutterman thread.  Probably should have done outside channel quilting first, and more densely, to help prevent distortion.  This project would have greatly benefited from trimming, but I didn’t think to do it, and blocking, which I didn’t know about then.  Attempted to use silver metallic thread in snowflake, but kept shredding.  Need to use larger topstitch needle next time.
