This is Megan’s Deck-ade the Halls quilt which was a Jolly Jabber Quilt Along in 2013 and it looks like the pattern is still available for free here. This is an adorable pattern using the Aspen Frost fabric collection. Megan asked for denser custom quilting so we decided on the pebbles with the odd swirl for the background. Since the border fabric as a distinct pattern we went with a bead-board design in the outer border. I stitched in the ditch around all the images and added details like feathers in the wreaths and stockings.
The batting is Quilters Dream Blend and the thread is white So Fine on the top and white Bottom Line on the back.
As you can see winter is here, it arrived quite quickly and with vengeance as we went so long this fall without snow. The lake is trying to form ice but the wind has prevented that from happening. Now that it has calming down I expect the lake to be frozen over tomorrow morning.
I measured 10 inches with handy dandy snow measuring tool, but it was so windy it drifted and some areas are knee deep, I’m sure we had more than that fall.
