Q2 Finish-Along: The Snowflake Quilt

So, I got a few things on my Q2 Finish Along list off the list - the first item and the last item!

1. The Snowflake Quilt

This is me standing in front of it as it hangs in the Sydney Quilt Show:

Quilt Show 2016

This was entered in the Open Amateur part of the show, and titled "The Promises Of Spring" with the blurb: Every winter's flake carries the promise of summer within it.

And for a slightly better image of the quilting:

Promises of Spring

Yes, I quilted it myself. The block was designed by Madame Parfait several years previously - the 'Rainbow Blossom' block, and I posted a tutorial for making the block back about three years ago, which I used to make these blocks. However, I've since had someone draft me a foundation paper piecing pattern, and as soon as I get back from my holidays, I'm going to turn it over to pattern testers and probably release it through Make Modern Magazine.

Linking up to the Q2 Finish Along!


  1. Wow, this is amazing! Congratulations on the finish and thank you for participating in the 2016FAL, on behalf of all the hosts!

  2. This quilt is fantastic! I missed a couple or rows of quilts despite being there three days, and I missed seeing yours obviously. And I missed seeing you! Congrats on the finish.
