Snowflakes!


1. A fun visit with my sister and nephew
2. Washing machine
3. Camera technology

Jane is hostessing a Quilt Around the World with a Christmas theme.



I made my starter block (upper left) a paper pieced snowflake.  I got such a great response to the design that I'm going to try to make everyone in the group a snowflake.  


Some of the quilters request that a piece of fabric they send be used in the block we make for them.  Such was the case with the snowflake block I made with the Santa center.


I'm so glad I'm getting to participate!!


The snowflakes are particularly appropriate since we have been getting sleet and snow, here in Denver, for a couple of days now!

Sweet! What a clever idea that was. And by the way, happy belated anniversary to you! My hubby and I will celebrate 14 years in June!

You are still getting snow!!! YIKES!!!
You know I love your block! Glad you are having fun, we are thrilled to have you!

Your feathered star/snowflake block is so pretty. Looks like it would be hard to piece.

where did you find the pattern for the snowflake? I am just getting into paper-piecing and this would be great for some gifts this year..

Love that red background...

I love the snowflake and the thought behind it. Wow, snow in Denver! It's been a very cool spring here too Mel, but no snow.
Stay warm!

What a great idea. I love Monica's new snowflake fabric and it would go perfectly with this challenge.
