    A Frosty Winters Night

    This was a guild challenge that I decided to turn into a Christmas Wall Hanging for a very good friend (now wondering haw goo a friend she is - lol - I happen to love how it turned ou!!) She is coming up for a visit early November and I wanted this ready to give her.

    The background is small white stars on white and most of the fabric has silver metallic on it. My only disappointment is that i stitched in the ditch - and now wished I had put it on the longarm and done it on that instaed of my domestic. That being said .... here it is!

    I love it! I like the color, the fabric, and the pattern of combining different sizes of stars. I hope you don't mind if I use this idea to make one .... it would be perfect for a special place for a wall hanging.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    It is lovely! SITD is fine but you can still add some FMQ onto it if you want.

    Beautiful! Can you share the name of the border fabric? Your friend is going to love it.

    I wish I was your friend. It's beautiful! And you could still do some FMQ of stars in silver! You are a great friend!

    I really like the blue and the way you have made the stars. She should be extremely pleased.

    Don't know exactly what the border was but here is a list of fabrics I used

    Midnight Plume by Timless treasure was some of it and the other fabrics were Kanvas Frost designed by Maria Kalinowski for Bernatex - I used Scotch Pine, Winter Pine and Starburst.

    I used the starburst for the border

    Thanks all for your kind comments - I may just hand tack the "problem" areas - lol. Overall I think it is a keeper and many have offered to take it off my hands!! This friend is my former neighbor and is a dear - I can not wait to give it to her - She and I are taking a cooking class at King Arthur Flour in early November and she will get it then!
