Pieceful Pines Quilted

It's a snowy day here in suburban Chicago and the clouds make for a good day to photograph the quilting of my Pieceful Pines quilt.  
While the dim lighting is great for capturing the quilting details, keep in mind it makes the fabrics look much darker than they are.  
Pieceful Pines is not your usual Christmas quilt in that I chose and designed fabrics that still look historic, not full of Christmas-y motifs.  So, when my quilter and dear friend, Ronda and I were searching for quilting designs, I didn't want a lot of Christmas quilting designs either.
Ronda found lots of really cool designs.  I love feathers which look awesome in the red part of the Log Cabin blocks, and really love the spray design she chose for the other half.  I think the straight lines give nice juxtaposition to the soft rounds of the feathers....and it kinda reminds me of gingerbread molding.

This little design reminded me of two things....a snowflake and the Spirograph I used to play with as a kid!  It isn't overly Christmas-y and fits in nicely....I think.
The center wreath and star blocks have some other gorgeous designs.  I love this center.  It would make an awesome table topper centerpiece all by itself.  
I hope sharing our quilting designs will help you with ideas when your Pieceful Pines BOM is completed.  

Pieceful Pines begins in April and will end in November, just in time for next Christmas!!

Please ask for Pieceful Pines at your local quilt shop!  


A little birdy told me to say you really might like to check my blog on Friday morning.   Something special may be coming your way!

Just sayin.....
