Snowflake Mini Quilt Pattern

Cindy here!  It’s January and very snowy in Ohio.  I decided to design a Snowflake Mini Quilt just for fun.  What do you think?

I used two metallic prints from Hoffman Fabrics Sparkle and Fade Line.  These fabrics have shimmery metallic details and reminded me of how fresh snow glistens on a sunny day.

I used two different shades of gray paint to stencil the word “SNOW”.  Then I machine quilted around each letter.

When I added the circles to the block, I used a few dots of fabric glue to tack them down, but fusible web or hand applique would work too!  The circles were a challenge to quilt because I had to keep lifting my presser foot and rotating every few stitches.

I am still practicing machine quilting with my walking foot and straight lines.  I decided to use Lori Kennedy’s advice about alternating areas of dense stitching with areas of minimal stitching.  I like the contrast — especially for smaller projects like this.
