Default Christmas Snowflakes from Bernina

This was an easy pattern to help use up some Christmas fabrics....free quiltalong, snowflake, on the Bernina blog.
I wanted to try a batting that would have a little more loft than the cotton batting I usually use, so I purchased Hobbs PolyDown. It did give me a higher loft, but I did not enjoy working with it all....maybe I needed to adjust the tension or something, but I feel like my FMQing took 5 steps backwards! I couldn't control the quilt as I quilted....or something! It has a pretty drape to it, but it's not as warm as my other lap quits. I learn new things with every quilt I make!

Love your quilt. I saw that pattern on their website and thought it was "nice", but would probably not make it. Seeing yours makes me want to start one right away. Maybe I can start one after I finish my holiday sewing.

Sorry about your difficulties quilting this but it is still a beautiful quilt. The colors, fabrics, and design are just wonderful.

I love this quilt but wonder if I can make it and quilt it with loops or stipples? I can't do the beautiful quilting as you did but really like this quilt.

I gave away what I had of Hobbs Poly Down since I started using Hobbs 80/20 when they first introduced it at Quilt market many years ago. Poly just wants to shift on you, cotton doesn't.

Here is the pattern:
