    I made this wall-hanging for my neighbor. She likes to decorate for holidays, and she likes blue. When I found this pattern, I was inspired to make it for her. It uses Angelina fibers in the tree, and hot fix crystals on the larger snowflakes. Those were both new techniques to me.

    No, it was not hard to do. The instructions went on at length about getting the grid of blocks straight, and it just wasn't that hard. They even had me buy a special gridded flannel, which was a total waste of money. I couldn't get the grid straight because it just clinged to the batting underneath. I ended up drawing my own lines and then just eye-balling it. It is a quilt-as-you-go project. Getting the applique tree enlarged was the most difficult part. The machines generally don't enlarge by 450% (as was required), so I increased it 225% and then again by 200%. It has a lot of steps, but they are not difficult.
