    Quilt for Women on Snow 2018

    Hi I just finished a lap quilt for Women On Snow 2018. It is held in Eagle River Wisconsin every year since 1986. It is 3 days of snowmobiling, fun and festivities for women of all ages, we try to ride 150+ miles and we have around 100 women who attend. At the banquet they have raffles and I wanted to make something to donate. This is my first time using chenille (and most likely my last) and flannel together. I just tied the corners of the squares as I was afraid to get wrinkles on the back of the quilt, and I was not sure how to quilt it. Thanks for looking.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Very nice. I love chenille but I have never attempted to sew it.

    Love your quilt! What better way to celebrate a day in the snow, than by snuggling under a warm winter quilt!

    What a cozy looking quilt...great job. BTW...where does one get chenille?
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Your quilt is lovely, I just wanted to say that I currently have a quilt on my bed that has both chenille and flannel and it quilted up fine. If anything the quilting kind of gets lost because of the chenille but you can see it fine on the back and on the flannel. My quilt is a queen size and I used only about 20 squares of the chenille. Perhaps the person who wins it will quilt it?

    Thanks for the relies. I really appreciate them. I was just worried I could not do it justice on my machine, I have never seen chenille quilted but I was asked to do another quilt for our Snowmobile club's Ice Golf Fund Raiser that I am co-chairman and maybe I will do that one. Any tips would be appreciated. Love this group and have learned so much.
