Snow Blossoms Quilt



I have been browsing quilting sites on the web for over a year before I started my own blog. During that time, there have been challenges to use fabric from stash for quilts. So the idea to use my stash was born with this queen size quilt top.

After the top was done, I didn’t like the look (too blah) so decided to add appliqué here and there and it finished the look and I am happy with it now. :o) Remember, I have mentioned before about adding applique to a top after it has been assembled. It can be done, except you are dealing with more bulk and in my case, there was a lot of bulk because the top is queen size ... but I did it!

It’s ready to be sandwiched and it will be hand quilted.
Have a great day!

The applique really sets it off and gives it zip! Great looking quilt. Congrats for a job well done. :)

I like how you used HST in the corners of the 9 patches. It creates a tertiary pattern. I've met a lady in Denver-town who actually appliqués after it is quilted. Talk about added bulk!

I love the dark applique. It really does add to the quilt -- and this is all from stash? Wonderful!

Oh wow, that added applique really changes the look of the quilt. Were you at all tempted to applique in all the blocks?

the applique really makes the quilt look even more special. I've appliqued a full quilt before and it is a lot more work, but the results are worth it

love and hugs gina
