Snowy Pines: A Finished Quilt


I named this quilt, "Snowy Pines"  due to the green triangles and snowflakes printed on the cream background.


 I cut the triangles out from 6.5 inch strips with the Creative Grids triangle ruler.  Then I put them up on my design wall.


My husband saw the quilt and fell in love with it.  He asked me, "What are you going to put on the back?"

I said that I had enough of one of the greens for the backing.  He then asked me, "Are you sure you don't want minky."

I told him that it would be good to use what I had.  Then I started piecing the triangles together.


He said, "It looks really good.  Are you sure you don't want to put minky on the back?"

It finally clicked and I asked him, "Do you want minky on the back of the quilt."

He answered, "Yeah.  If you put minky on the back then I will commandeer it."

Needless to say that I bought minky to put on the back for my sweet, supportive, husband.  He definitely deserves another quilt with minky backing.


I quilted it on the Bernina Q24 with hooked spirals.  It is still one of my favorite designs.


It reminds me a little of wind and is great for a masculine quilt.


The backing really is a cream minky.


The binding is the same green that would have been the backing.


My husband and I both love how this quilt turned out.

I thought it looked really neat with the sun shining through the quilt.


When it is not in use, the quilt lives on the reclining chair in our bedroom.


However, I may have to borrow it for the family room for the month of March.  It was originally going to be my green throw quilt.  ;)

  3. I just LOVE that your husband commandeered the quilt! It's a great masculine quilt, and that swirled hook, although I STILL haven't quite got the flow of it, is also one of my favourite motifs. Hmm, makes me think I might use it on my nephew's quilt...

  4. I like this quilt very much, Jasmine.
    When you use minky on the back, do you use a different batting?
    I have about 20 quilt tops. I need to get to work one day....

  6. Hmmm I think you need real snow and real pines in your pic---I could provide that for you this morning~ Yesterday it was brown grass and today 10" of heavy wet white and the trees are bogged down once again. P.S. I like the quilt too;)

  7. Haha, are you sure you don't want minky? I had a friend over yesterday - I'm doing two tshirt quilts for her - and she found the minky-backed Minecraft quilt. So needless to say, now she wants a minky back!

  9. I think the snowflakes melted - because it has been so warm :-D But I love all the piney green shades. Your work is so neat, as usual.
    Everyone wants minky and those swirls are yummy.
