Chevron Snowflake (40)

Seems like it has been so long since I finished a quilt
right now as I type there are 2 tops hanging on the design wall waiting for backing

I will start with an apology
I live in Saskatchewan Canada
It looks great out my window, all beautiful and white,
snow sparkling in the sunshine,
a slight wind blowing
making the temperature -32

which in my language is too darn cold for outdoor pictures!!!

I posted about making this Chevron Snowflake quilt
from the Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine

well its all finished!!!

This was my first time working with diamond pieces
I think it turned out great

I quilted it on my home machine with squiggly lines (is that a word??)

I used a rainbow thread in my bobbin, for a bit of colour on the white fleece backing

And then used the left over pieces for a rainbow scrappy binding

For now it lives in the living room,
I am not sure if it will become a seasonal quilt or not

again sorry for the poor pictures

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Saturday!!

I love this quilt, it turned out beautifully. I love the colors with the snowflake pattern, it keeps it from being too seasonal. Well done!

Great finish and looks so cozy with that backing!! I've been drooling over that cover quilt since I received the magazine too :)
