Progress on the Snowman Quilt

I finished quilting the snowman quilt last night, and I am thrilled with how well it turned out. I really wanted to use this stars and loops pantograph, but I was still undecided whether or not to quilt through their little heads. Finally my curiosity got the better of me, to see how it looked that way, and I like it just fine. In fact, the more I look at it the better I like it. I wouldn't hesitate to quilt through appliques again, even though some folks will probably tell me I shouldn't. Are there really any rules in quilting anymore?

Tonight I'll get the binding machine sewn onto the quilt, and I'm going to try get my other Christmas quilt loaded tonight and quilted tomorrow. The theme of the quilt is Christmas presents, so I'm quilting Christmas trees on it.

Hi Sue,Your Snowman quilt is adorable! Looks like I missed a great workshop & Quilters Yard sale... I'll have to remember the little basket pincushion when I need a little gift.

I think you can quilt through anything you want as long as the thread color isn't offensive. I think the snowmen look great.
