Today's the day we've all been waiting for ..... the start of the Blogger's Quilt Festival...how exciting...I can't wait to see all the different quilts...Click on the link in my sidebar, not the one at the beginning of this post, to get to the site.

The quilt I decided to show is called Here's Comes Frosty...it is one of the first quilts I made and definitely the first and only one that I have ever hand quilted! It was made in 1998. I don't know the name of the designer, but the pattern sure was the cutest...and I was 'in love' with the 'homespuns' and scrappy look...also have always been a 'scenic' person...so here is my offering...
The size of the quilt is approximately 54" x 72".
Here's Frosty melting in front of the stove...there is a winter scene in the window.

A little dog came to travel with Frosty.


Here's a little angel snowman...




I didn't know WHAT I was doing...but I had the cutest piece of fabric that I wanted to use for the backing but it was too small, so I added a border...I so remember 'stressing' over getting it centered.


This is a close up of the fabric...it has receipes on cute sayings.
Well I hope you like...my pictures aren't the best...but you can click to enlarge and maybe see them a little better. I'm off now to check out some of the other quilts. Have a happy day!
