Project From the Past - Arctic Freeze Quilt
This past fall I stumbled on to this fantastic woodland fabric from Hawthorne Threads and, of course, I had to buy it. I loved the winter blue hues and animals.
Instead of a traditional cotton backing, I chose a grey minky fabric for the back. Minky is so soft and it added just a little more to the weight of the quilt.
I was lucky enough to have a dear friend purchase this quilt for her grand nephew. Doesn't it look great with the nursery coordinates?
I liked this quilt so much, I purchased the fabric again in blue and in a pink/coral for a girl. I need to get them started ASAP.
1. Minky is beautiful, but messy.
2. This fabric, designed and produced by Hawthorne Threads, has a really wonderful, heavier weight feel to it.
3. The quilt was machine washed,dried, and came out beautiful.
Enjoy the day.
