A Wintry Sight Earning Its Place on the Wall

Wow how did Christmas get to be just a week away? This year has sped by quickly, yet seems so long... if that is possible! But being so close to Christmas, I decided it was way past time to get out my Christmas quilts so went digging in my quilt chest. While looking through them, I found my Fractured Winter quilt - one I don't often display yet it is so crisp with its blues and whites - definitely a wintry sight and one that should be out on display around this time of year.

Why it seems to hide away is because it is the second part of a pattern called Fractured Seasons and Fractured Fall always took the limelight.... so today I have been busily transforming it into its very own pattern file - it really does deserve it. In fact, I think I'll just hang it right up in my office so I can enjoy it too.

One of the fun things I remember about making this pattern is the use of the applique shapes. First I used them for applique (some full flakes and some broken), outlining them with dark blue to make them stand out.

Then I had fun quilting around the paper backings (removed from the fusible webbing when attaching the snowflake in place). As you can see, I didn't need to use an all-over quilting design for this, just simply added snowflakes to fill in any spaces.

Some we quilted within the Bargello section...
