Acuquilt Winter Wonderland Concept

With Winter Wonderland coming out Dec 1st, it is the perfect time to come up with a beautiful winter quilt. This is an elegant collection that is full of quiet, delicate snowflakes perfect for the cold, wintry months. Cuddle up in a quilt with matching pillows or decorate the table with sophisticated table cloth, napkins and place mats. The wonderful thing about this collection is that its hues of blues and whites complement many home decor settings. Since time if of the essence, I thought I would create some digital quilt concepts with Acuquilt’s Go Fabric Cutter using the Go! Double Wedding Ring pattern. I am hoping I will find this as a gift under the Christmas tree, hint…hint…
