Christmas Quilt with Snowflakes

This is a great Christmas quilt. Several of the fabrics in the quilt top had a shimmer to them, which was really evocative of snow or candlelight. At my client's request, I applied an edge-to-edge quilting plan of swirls and snowflakes. It was all free-hand, so unlike nature, the snowflakes are not perfect. I think real-life snowflakes have 6 points. Some of these had more, some had less. But I think the overall effect accomplishes a winter theme. It'll be here before we know it!

My quilting is all free-motion, hand-guided on a longarm quilting machine.
