    Another Quick Christmas Quilt Top

    This is one I made in Christmas Blues, mostly snowflakes, made it a little bit bigger. I would love to put large snowflakes on it but can't find a pattern for them. Any ideals???

    Look up coloring pages of snowflakes. Copy the picture and make a clear plastic template. Then applique some snowflakes on to your quilt. Your quilt is very pretty by the way.

    I did two wall hangings for Christmas and they had good size snow flakes appliqued. Cannot remember the gals name for the pattern. She has a set out with wall/door hangings for all the holidays and she is very well known. Try google for snow flake applique. These were really pretty, but simple. Five narrow rectangles with snowflake shape on each end for each big snowflake. They would be perfect for your pretty quilt. OH I will see if I have a picture to attach.

    I would just google designs to get an outline and use wool or batting scraps..make them more 3-d and fluffy like snowflakes.

    I made my patterns by folding and cutting paper shapes.

    I would go with getting coloring pages -- here are some sample pages:

    http://www.coloring.ws/winter3.htm
    http://www.edupics.com/coloring-page...ke-i10356.html
    http://www.grandparents.com/gp/conte...snowflake.html

    I used to cut them out myself by folding a piece of paper in half and then in half again and cut, then using the paper as a templat. Because of the way snowflakes are cut they are often appliqued the same way that the Hawiian applique is done.

    I love this quilt! I remember seeing some others you'd done out of this same pattern & I love all of them! This one is so icy & just shouts WINTER! It's fabulous!

    Love the pattern-did you make it up?
