Snowflakes in June


It is hot outside but snowflakes are carpeting my front lawn! English Paper Pieced snowflakes that is!


Just finished this quilt top and thought I would share.  Sorry about the shadow in the shot - didn't catch that on the camera.









I think I started this in late April so it went together very quickly.  It is going to be for me to use during the holidays.  yay!









I still have to give it a good press, pull out some papers, and stay-stitch the edge.

In my quilting studio, my personal pile of quilts is almost getting as large as the customer pile!  I had better start squeezing them into the schedule.








 I wish my big shasta daisies were more in bloom for a better backdrop.  I will share this one again once I get it quilted.  Hopefully that happens before December!  Thanks for stopping by!!


Linking up this Friday with Can I get a Whoop Whoop?, Link a Finish Friday, and TGIFF.  Be sure and visit them to see many amazing projects!

Beautiful quilt! The colors and the pattern are so great. I love the spots of white in the middle of each snowflake.

You are on a roll with your own quilts! We're waiting to see them quilted, so you had best put one of yours in the loop every week!
