North Pole show and tell…

Diane Pfeifley wrote to say: “After I made Whoville for my niece, I decided that I wanted a Santa village for myself. It’s all needle turn appliqué, hand quilted, and embellished to death. I searched and collected fun, little things for several years. Then I decided to try beading. I hadn’t done any beading before. Well, if a little beading is good… a lot of beading is better! I’ve had so much fun using your North Pole patterns. Thanks for a wonderfully fun bunch of patterns.”

Is this not the cutest quilt ever?! I love the way she mixed and matched the houses from Welcome to the North Pole over the face of this quilt. I wanted to see details and Diane kindly took and shared more photos…

Daine also said: “I also forgot to mention that I used trapunto for the snow banks. First try at that too. If you can’t experiment on yourself where can you experiment?” So very true.

Every part of this makes me grin! Thank you, Diane, for sharing your fantastic quilt!
