    Wow. So striking. I am in the process of collecting fabric in blue and whites to make a snowflake quilt. I hope it turns out as striking!

    How beautiful, while I can't offer any advice on how to quilt them I certainly understand Why you want the best to highlight their beauty. I think I would pm Chrisma (I hope that's correct), everything I've seen of her has been magnificent.

    If you want a red metallic, Superior Threads has a red # 62 or for even more sparkle their Glitter threads have more bling! Glitter # 130 Ruby, would be my choice.

    I really like the idea of doing a snowflake where the blocks come together then some sort of heavy quilting I really like mctavishing to make the applique blocks pop and the quilted snowflakes stand out.

    I have to tell you while I am not much for applique, I cannot believe that you completed an entire quilt of snowflakes. I am so impressed and can hardly wait to see the finished product. The final result should be gorgeous.

    Just gorgeous! I think the quilted rays would look pretty. Or you could always stipple...

    Wow! Can't wait to see pics when it's finished - any quilting you do will only accent the beautiful work you've done here.

    Wow! It's already been said that is going to be a gorgeous quilt! The blocks are stunning! How long did it take to hand appliqué the flakes? Well worth it, no matter how long!

    How Beautiful! The snowflakes stand out so well in contrast, I would do something simple so as not to distract. Maybe even a traditional diagonal grid.

(Much like sun rays.) Each square is ditch-stitched around the perimeter and has a row of echo stitching inside the ditch too. While it's okay, the quiliting on the pattern pictures doesn't really do anything for me. There's not much room between the individual elements of each flake. But there is substantial space between the snowflakes and I want to make the best use of it to set off the snowflakes as much as possible. Any suggestions?

    Beautiful work. I'd not want much more detail, I'd think.

    What a beautiful quilt. Can you check some sites online to get some ideas? There are lots out there. Just Bing quilting designs and fillers
