    More snowflakes to share

    In this thread (http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...o-t195708.html), I showed off my first 5 snowflakes. I have a few more done, and thought I would share. The quilt has 12 12.5" squares and one 26" square. I am well on my way!

    The FMQ quilting designs are Brain Coral (courtesy of Leah Day), Tire Tracks (mine, but influenced by Leah and Diane Gaudynski's bananas), and Coffee Bean (mine, but likely influenced by something of Leah's- I just don't know what...)

    great job. I especially like that you included what FMQ background fill designs you used.

    They are beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I always watch them, but only follow along if it fits into the project I'm doing. They are such great resources.

    Lovely work!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
