Snow Crystals Progress

Snow Crystals Mini-Quilt WIP

This week I’m working on adding borders to my Snow Crystals mini-quilt – I tested out those zig-zags in all different layouts and they worked best as a simple stripe around the block. Paper piecing those long strips and getting the stripes straight is a pain in my ass, I’m glad there’s only four of them to make!

And a wee square of polka dots in the corners, eep!

    I love, love, love this. It makes me want to try paper piecing.

      Thank you, Anne! And you should! It’s just about the simplest, low-impact sewing in the world – and you can get started with basic household stuff. A piece of heavy paper, some scraps of fabric, thread and needle. That’s it! Go for it! :)

    My goodness you are one talented crafter! The lace blew me away, and this patchwork is so lovely – I love the pattern choices (overly busy patterned quilts give me a headache!). Looking forward to the finished product! Chrissie x

    Gorgeous!! I saw a girl making a quilt a lot like this at a Civil War Re-enactment. She was paper piecing the entire thing. It was HUGE!! Come to think of it…it seemed like it was made entirely of diamonds though. So, I’m not sure if it’s the same pattern.

    Love the fabric choices!

      Thank you, Genevieve! It’s a wonderful block pattern, and has a lot of variations – perhaps the one you saw was similar but not exactly the same. Or maybe different-angled diamonds, but I love them all really! :)
