Old fashioned Christmas Quilt!

I hesitated showing my new piece, the flash really did a job on the colors and look.
I made this stitched piece last year and put it in a frame, but I wanted to make it into a mini quilt.
I decided to go with plaid for a border, just seemed to fit the look and then I added stitched snowflakes.
I did a blanket stitch around the outside, but it is hard to see, I really need to start using my good camera and learning how to use the functions.

The stitchery is a vintage design I found on the web and I added the snowflakes and saying.

It's very cute. What photo editor do you use? This looks like a job for "levels" or "remove color cast".
