Festive Flurries - Finished!

I’ve been on a roll this week. 🙂 I finished the twin-size “winter quilt” for my son’s bed, Festive Flurries:

The center blocks were designed by Jocelyn Yeung of It’s Sew Emma from American Patchwork & Quilting.  Their original layout calls for another row of snowflakes and would have made it closer to full size, a bit too big for my son’s bed, so I adapted and added the row of HSTs. In piecing the snowflakes, I generated 112 2-1/4″ finished size HSTs, from which I took 64 for those border corners (I used the rest in a scarf for a friend).

I had fun quilting icicles into the light parts of the HSTs.  The rest of the quilt is done primarily with a meander.  The back and outer borders are a cozy flannel.

Nina approves of cozy flannel quilt backs.

  1. So pretty! I love the icicles! So it’s your design to put the pinwheel in the border? Very clever, pinwheels are favorites in my sewing room 🙂 Nina is so pretty with all the light blues :))))

  2. This is great. The spirit of ot reminds me of a Christmas quilt I made for my son (I would direct you to Seamed Up, but, you know…). Mine had a Christmas tree border, but was mostly so blue and white and snowy that we left it on into Jan and Feb. Hope Boxer loves it as much as as my son has.
