pattern, I knew immediately that I wanted to make it. I thought it would be challenge because of the trees and the size, but once I got started, it came together pretty quickly. I worked on it for about 3 months and finished just before Christmas.
After a suggestion from a reader, I decided to hand quilt snowflakes in the blocks. That was taking FOREVER, so I machine quilted around the trees which was a challenge, but I think it motivated me to try machine quilting for my next project. It's so much faster!
Happy Quilt Festival-ing!
