Cove Quilter's "Winter" Challenge #7

Our next challenge was suggested by long distance member Heather Stewart and her chosen theme was "Winter". Heather sent us each a little plastic bag with about 6 snwoflake buttons and a piece of tone on tone white fabric that had a bit of a shimmer. It kid of looked like fresh fallen snow on a really cold day, the crunchy kind! She asked us to use the them "Winter", use at least one button and some of the fabric somewhere.

Unfortunately Heather couldn't be with us the day we had our grand reveal, she was moving that day and in another province! Heather did mail me her challenge...

Heather's challenge - machine embroidered and machine quilted. These challenges are all approximately 12"x12".

My challenge "Snow Apples" was machine pieced, machine quilted and hand embroidered.

Here are all 8 challenges with Sandra and Donna at our March meeting of the Mahone Bay Quilters Guild.

Our next challenge has been issued by Donna and the theme will be "Flowers". This will be a tough one, I have way too many ideas. The rest of the challenges are here on my Flickr page. They are all wonderful!
