Snowed in ... Finished!


I worked on my new piece and finished it tonight. I added a border of various Christmas prints and then added a green border that has stars on it. I think it gave it just enough prim, but still fun. I am not sure if I should use walnut stain on it? What do you think?

The pattern is from Chickadee Hollow Designs and it was gifted to me by This-n-That Fabrics. There is still time to vote for your favorite quilt, if you haven't yet.

I still need to fix the bird, missed a spot with the marker and forgot the green for the leaves on the birdhouse. We won't mention the sloppy job I did on the border binding, my brain cannot think straight so that seems to be effecting my newest pieces, wait till you see my next one, talk about wonky, lol. I wonder if anyone would want this;) For the quilting, I used Lana wool thread.

It's darling! I think it's perfect! Can you tell me about using walnut stain? I have only heard of Instant Antique product... Sorry I have been missing in action. Have been super busy. Hope to have more time to catch up on your posts soon. Love the goodies you have posted recently!

Great finish! I would not stain it unless you know the recipient would want it more prim.
