Nordic Holiday quilt

There are many wonderful things about my job, and one thing that delights me is seeing photos of customer’s quilts using our fabrics or kits. In fact, that’s one of my favorite things about our Quilt With Us community. What really tickles me though is when a customer takes the time to mail a snapshot of a finished quilt with a letter in this age of email and social networking. Like most of us, most of the mail I get is junk mail, so to receive a hand written letter is truly special!

I received one this week from Peggy Robinson that I had to share. Peggy writes:

Connecting Threads,

I am very pleased with the kit I ordered from you. I backed it with flannel because I happened on a snow flake print in same colors. A friend has an embroidery machine and quilted it with a variety of snow flakes and scenes–gorgeous!

-Peggy Robinson

Here’s the snapshot of the finished quilt, and I agree that the embroidery on it is wonderful! And that backing flannel looks like it was made for the group.

“Nordic Holiday blue kit” by Kristin Gassaway (now sold out) in Winter Fun fabric.
Made by Peggy Robinson, machine embroidered by Peggy Cooper.

If you’re reading, Peggy, thank you for sharing your beautiful finished quilt with us. It made my day!

    I am looking for a panel called “Simple pleasures” and it had several fabrics to go withit.

    Looks like you can still get the fabric. If I did not have a home full of Winter/Christmas quilts I would buy some fabric. The embroidery snow flakes looks like the ones from Embroidery Library. It is a beautiful quilt.
