I love to quilt and travel and since I retired a few years ago I wanted to do some writing about my quilting and travelling and share it with others.

This is the quilt I referred to before as the snowman quilt. It is called "Flurry Fun". It was a block of the month from the local quilt shop "Quilter's Stash". I started it February 09 and finished it this month. It was suppose to be twin size but I wanted it to grow to be double bed size so I added extra blocks on the sides. The snowmen are all appliqued onto pieced squares, most of them are doing winter olympic sports. The surrounding squares were done using the strip-piecing method. The finished size is 76 x 85. I had it longarm quilted with a snowflake pattern. The binding was a challenge since the quilt was very large, but I managed. It seemed I was "under the quilt" not under the weather.
This is the pattern that was used for the quilting. I think that it was very fitting for a winter scene quilt.
