Let It Snow Quilt Finish

I’ve had this quilt finishes for a few weeks but I keep forgetting to share it with you!  I made this quilt “Let It Snow” for the Fat Quarter Shop’s Holiday Wishes blog hop back in July.

Let it Snow Quilt by Kim LapacekI used pink and orange to make this quilt because it is for my oldest daughter and those are her favorite colors.  Her birthday is at the November so a winter-y quilt seemed like the perfect thing for her!  The snowmen don’t have eyes, noses or mouths … yet.  I’m thinking we’ll (Cedi and/or me) be collecting button and things along the way of the next few years and add them on as we find them.

Let it Snow Quilt by Kim Lapacek quilted by Kim Van EttenI brought this quilt to Kim Van Etten to quilt and she did an amazing job!  Capri and Pip came with me to drop off the quilts.  I asked them if they had any ideas for the quilting …

Let it Snow Quilt by Kim Lapacek quilted by Kim Van EttenPip told Kim that Cedi really liked dolphins.  Yup – dolphins in a snowflake/snowman quilt!  And Kim DID it! Inside the swirls of the snowflakes Kim free motion quilted the silhouette of dolphins!  She said this quilt reminds her of a Hawaiian Christmas!  YES!

Cedi was really excited when I finished the last stitches in the binding – she sleeps with it every night now!
