Another Finish

I finished another smaller sized lap quilt (46" x 58") this week. 
It was an quick and easy quilt from a kit that you can read about here.
I stipple quilted in the plain blocks, but wasn't sure what to quilt in the picture blocks. 
My friend Nancy let me use her fancy sewing machine to quilt some snowflake chains in each block. It was really fun to quilt and the perfect touch for the project.
This quilt also went to the silent auction for my brother's fundraiser last weekend, which raised over $4,000 for his upcoming surgery (for private room recovery and post surgical recovery therapy)!! 
His new album is available now and you can buy it on iTunes or you can check it out at: "This is the Sound of My Voice". favorite tracks are 3, 10 and 7 (in that order!)

Oh my grandchildren would love this quilt - they have all the Peanuts holiday videos. Nicely done, and your snowflake quilting is the crowning touch.
