It was time to finish up the lovely and warm flannel top that I put together back in september 2008. This is my warmest quilt yet; flannel top and back (Bonnie Sullivan Winter Wonderland) and Hobbs Heirloom Premium 100 % wool batting.
But in the opposite order (pinned, tied, machine quilted in the outermost rows and then hand quilted)
Warm Winter Wonderland measures 60" by 72". The bricks are 4" by 8", a mix of a fat 8 roll and some added yardage. The soft and grayed palette is calm and quiet. I watched the winter olympics in Vancouver while quilting it, witnessing the norwegian skier Marit Bjørgen collecting her gold medallion. Perfect combination! No skiing being done by me, just quilting ; )
