but one of my clients is closer! She sent me this quilt. It's a beautiful winter holiday sampler with lots of applique.
Samplers can be fun, because you never quilt enough of the same thing to really get bored. This one I chose a few backgrounds to use and repeat to carry the design through. To avoid changing thread colors many times, I selected an off-white Glide thread. Because of it's shine, it was just fine on the white and the tan fabrics, giving a great wintery feel to the entire quilt. I really love the block backgrounds where I did the free feathering.
