Snowflake Happiness

Good morning! It’s Cindy reporting in today. I’ve been working on my Eskimo Snow quilt and thought I would update you on my progress.

This panel came from the Quilted Raven Alaska shop in Anchorage and was designed by Barbara Lavallee. Here’s the link so you can have a look at some of her panels and coordinating fabrics…they are so cute!

I’m in the process of making snowflake blocks that coordinate with the colors in the panel. While this quilt is still in the design process, I think I will need at least 18 snowflake blocks that are made from 1.25 inch squares…I’m almost there!

In order to keep myself on the straight and narrow with my ruler and rotary cutter, I’m using Thangles. Here’s the link to the Thangles website for more information and some beautiful quilt patterns:

I’ll sign off for now, get back to making my happy snowflakes and watch the magic of spring unfold!

      Isn’t it a great shop? I liked it because of all the different fabrics and patterns that we typically don’t see down here in the lower 48.

    Good morning, Cindy! I love this whole piece in spite of being over snow for the season. I’ve also visited that store! How cool – and I always love to pick up unique panels. I love where you’re going with this! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Thanks Roseanne! I do think it’s a happy quilt with all the bright colors AND the panel just plain makes me smile. Isn’t it a nice store? I like to see what regional quilters are doing and I like to see if Barbara Lavallee has anything new.

    I have an ornament from the same artist. You are bringing even more life to the panel with the colorful snowflakes.
