Remember my Scotties? I had it almost done last summer, except the binding on the back. I even had the label on it that I got it done last Aug!!!! I finally finished it and had to change the label. Now THAT is ridiculous! LOLThis snowman rail fence is SO old, I can't even remember how old it is! Our quilt group is having a retreat next weekend and we are supposed to either bring blocks or fabric to assemble some charity quilts. I decided to go ahead and finish this and I'll be done!This isn't that old (only a couple of years!), and this is one that I allowed my students to practice on learning to quilt on my HQ16. They did a good job and now it's done too! This was a free pattern here. I just completed this quilt last night. I am sewing samples for a friend who just opened a quilt shop (Quilter's Cottage) up in Garden City, SC. (south of Myrtle Beach). Don't you love it? She sent me the fabric, that are stamped batiks from Island Batik. Here's what Designer's Quarters magazine (Summer 2007) says about the fabric, "Thanks to Island Batik's stamped printing process, each piece of Batik Wheel gives the fabric lover control without sacrificing the gorgeous visual texture of true batiks." I tell ya, I could hardly tell the difference from the front and back of the fabric. And oh, so yummy they were! The pattern is in the Designer's Quarters magazine and used special templates (you could make your own though) It was a bit tedious at times, but it turned out beautiful. It does shrink though!! All the circles before assembled filled up almost my entire design wall (8' x 8') and finished at 45" x 56"!
I used Superior Threads, Rainbows, on the top stitching on the circles, although it doesn't really show in this picture. I used a gray thread on the back and now am wishing I would have used the Rainbow in the bobbin as well--it would have made a nice design.
