Here are some close-ups of the 4 blocks of Scandinavian Christmas. I'd bought the set of patterns just after Christmas last year, from Patchwork Chicks here in the UK. A few months ago Lynette very kindly sent me a bundle of fat eighths of her latest festive fabric collection, Frosty Friends, which I teamed with some beautiful linen that I'd bought a few years ago when I was on holiday in Norway - this was perfect for making this quilt! All the hand embroidery was stitched with DMC thread, and the hand applique was completed with the applique paper and glue stick method, and stitched in place with Aurifil 80wt thread. The churn dash blocks are so cute! This quilt was machine pieced together with Aurifil 50wt thread, and finally it was custom quilted by the very talented Janette at J-Quilts. I used a dark red "Lynette" fabric from my fabric box for the binding, and a previous post shows you the quilt label that was stitched to the back of the quilt. A sleeve has been added to the back ready for hanging on the wall at Christmas time. If you're going on one of Lynette's workshops at Horwood House in August you'll be able to see this - Lynette will also have this on her stall at FOQ in Birmingham. If you'd like to purchase a set of these patterns, they're also available from Lynette's online shop, Little Quilt Store. And the fabrics will soon be available here in the UK too.
