A little quilting on the packages. . .straight lines that followed the print. Remember, I challenged myself to use the pebble design and variations of it for the background quilting. The reason I chose pebbles because the pebbles shape reminded me of big fat snowflakes falling. That polka dot sashing makes me think of snowflakes. I stitched tear drops or paisleys on this package. Instead of making a roundish circle, I made a teardrop shape.
I followed the outline of the snowmen in the print below. Next, I took the circles and made them swirl.
I quilted a grid on this print. Notice that all the ribbons are stitched similarly. Finally, I varied the paisleys and circles. . .sort of merged them together to get a circle within a circle!
It is easier to see the quilting on the back. On the right, is the paisley background.Then I decided to finish the sashing and border with actual pebbles.

Then it was on to add the label. This is going to be a Christmas gift!
It is GREAT to have a FINISHED project!!!
