Cute Snowman Quilt

I quilted this really fun panel quilt for the Quilt Shoppe yesterday. It took me what seemed like forever, due to some thread issues, but I am really pleased with how it turned out. I wanted the snowmen to "pop" and be 3-dimensional, so I did a lot of heavy quilting around them to achieve that.
A close-up of the snowman from a block similar to the one above. I outlined the snowman in the circle, did a really tight looping meander in the center of the "frame" and then quilted swirls in the frame part. I used a dark purple thread for all of the quilting in the blocks.
This is the best picture I could get of the full quilt. Sorry! I forgot to take my camera with me, so I just had my camera phone. Again, sorry about the blurriness. In the border I did a fairly tight looping meander in a light purple thread. It turned out so cute.
Another closeup, but of a different block. There were really only 2 blocks, but they had different colors in them. It was a really cute quilt.
I had a lot of fun with this quilt, because my stitch regulator works now, and I was able to do a lot of things that I normally wouldn't have done. I've missed quilting this past week. It will be nice to actually get some work done this coming week. My goal is a quilt a day, and I really think I can achieve that now that everything on the machine is working properly.
