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.
