    Nordic Snowflakes, pieced and quilted by me :)

    A couple years ago, the Nordic Snowflakes pattern was featured by Angela Walters on her blog, and I immediately knew that I wanted to make it for my mom. I think my mom had a sweater once upon a time that looked like this, which is why I made such a strong connection to her the moment I saw it. I ran out and bought the Dec 2013 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. I couldn't start right away because I had some other projects to finish, but I spent the next 9 months or so thinking about it, knowing it was on the horizon. I finally found the perfect fabric, with red-on-red snowflakes on it. I finished it earlier this year but didn't want to post any pictures until after I'd given it to her.

    This pattern was designed by Gudrun Erla of GE Designs, and it's the most challenging pattern I've made so far. Those snowflakes are made up of 1.5" stripes... a lot of them! Machine pieced on a Brother PQ1500S, and machine quilted on a Bailey 17" on a Grace frame.

    Thanks for looking!

    One step at a time, always forward.

    Your quilt is wonderful! I come from a Scandinavian community, and that type of design on sweaters is familiar to me. You did a great job with it!

    I made that, too. It was pretty intense but really worth the time and effort. Yours is beautiful. Your mother must be delighted to have it. Mine lives in my family room on the sofa!

    That is simply beautiful. Thank you for posting all the information. Not that I will try it in my life time but it is nice to see where to get it, who designed it etc.

    I had seen the Fair Isle pattern but never this one. It is gorgeous! Your mother is a very lucky woman. Your piecing and quilting are fantastic.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    My husband really wanted to keep this one, but I told him no. It was always meant to be Mom's, right from the start. She did like it. She said it brightens her day every time she sees it.

    Just beautiful!! That quilt is on my list also, but I had thought of using a darker red. Need to rethink that, as the red you used is perfect for that pattern with the white. As far as hubby, guess you will have to make another one just for him. At least you have the bugs worked out now! lol
