    Make your own pattern for the snowflakes. Quilt is really pretty and the snowflakes would add to it.

    Your quilt is cute and I think appliqueing larger snowflakes is a good idea, but not to many!

    Nice! You can always add a darker border that you can quilt snowflakes on it in white.
    Go forth and sew!

    I made a table runner with applique snowflakes on the top. Check out the last pattern shown on this page: http://www.etsy.com/shop/theheartandhomeco There are three different size snowflakes used.

    Very pretty and great job. I am not good with a lot of small pieces and your quilt looks like something I would like to do. Thanks for sharing.

    Scroll down on this site.....http://www.makethemyourself.com/freepatterns.html

    another idea would be to find a stash of antique (or even new) white doilies and strew them across it---maybe even add a few sparkles with "jewels"...

    Great ideal, maybe after I get it quilted, I may crochet some snowflakes and add them?

    If you have an embroidery machine, it would be lovely to scatter a few around. If not, maybe a friend would do it for you. I love the quilt. Christmas blues are always so soothing.

    I actually like the quilt as is...not sure where you would put some large snowflakes.
    I might increase the border a bit more.

    Try making templates from paper cut snowflakes and either fuse or needle turn them in applique

    a fun way to get a pattern would be to make your own paper snowflakes. fold paper into 6ths ( 60 degree angle). cut into the folds. refold so you have new edges to cut shapes . open it up and you have a snowflake!

    p.s. i really like your quilt!
