red and white snowflakes ~ placemats

MarveLes Art StudiosArt and Collage Quilts, Blogs 10 Comments

good morning all ~

i am enjoying a burst of happy contrast using white on red, and of course prepping for christmas, and since i’m enjoying using my die cutters… {accuquilt go! and size big shot} it’s the perfect time to put them all together and make fun stuff:

it’s been a madhouse of fusing and cutting! how fun it is to play with these pretty puzzle pieces and combine them onto holiday-styled placemats. (and coasters}

and while all that red and white is super for christmas and holiday decorating, the quilting with white thread totally makes my bells jingle!  {sorry – very corny!}  it just becomes dynamic, slightly graphic, and really very pretty to me:

{they are listed in my etsy shop too} 

it was easy-peasy to outline each snowflake quickly with white thread, and then move into the overall quilting:

and i have a new thread to play with; this is a wonderfil brand, “dazzle-dazzle” ~it’s a bit of satiny rayon, combined with silver metallic; a very thick thread, which i couched into the binding seam, and it was the perfect choice for the fabric snowflakes as each has that little touch of sparkle and silver:

happy day to you ~

  1. Now after seeing what you've done….it's really the first time I have ever wanted a Go ! Stunning…I noticed your thread says "Wonder" It should say wonderful !

  2. That are wonderful mats! How long took the quilting and how big is one circle. It seems that you are a real fast quilter because of the amount of beautiful things you create. 🙂
