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. ;)
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out for more quilty inspiration.
