While working on my last quilt, I wished I had more pink fabric with snowflakes that was different from anything else. So I designed my own!
Didn't stop with just pink, either. I've collected blue snowflake fabric for more than 20 years. For a long time, I've wished I could get some of the fabrics in my collection in gradient shades.
So I designed my own!
Because Christmas is drawing near, I thought perhaps it might be wise to make some red, green and blue, too. Now I just have to come up with projects for all this luscious snowflake fabric!
The day these fabrics came in the mail, I was at work. I couldn't wait until the end of the day to start cutting! Then I had to decide which one to use first.
The Pink Wave Snowflake fabric I designed last spring jumped out at me while I was stewing over patterns and projects, and I decided to incorporate both pink fabrics into a new pin quilt. It would be just perfect for my collection of pink ribbon pins!
Cut out the pieces and stitched them together the first night. Layered, basted and quilted the second night. Afterthought pillowcase bound the quilt the third night.
Another big confidence booster! Finished in three nights! The only true free-motion quilting is the snowflake in the center, but the more I practice, the better I get at it. Eventually, I may work up the guts to free-motion quilt Welcome to the Jungle!
