So the snowflake quilt is nearing completion. I have a small block and the big block left to go. I plan to stipple the large block and do circuit board (square) stippling on the small block. I had planned to McTavish, but in the end decided against it because while my McTavishing is good, I think it looks best in a complementary color to the fabric.
This quilt really got stalled for awhile because I ran out of designs and motivation. And then a bunch of projects came along, but in the end, it is going to get there.
So here are the two squares I finished over Christmas. The triangles have been in progress for months. Not sure why I didn't get them done before. They weren't really that hard. (You should be able to click to see bigger. This one is hard to see the design.)
So, like I said two more and then the challenge of putting on the border. I am not sure if I will do wavy joining of the blocks, but I decided not to do scallops on the edge of the quilt. I am also really confused how to add a hanging sleeve to it (I usually use triangle corners) because quite honestly, I'd really like to show the quilt (the websites for the shows I'm looking at all say you can use someone else's design, though I plan to email the designer for permission)- we had a speaker at the guild really talk about how show quilts are NOT perfect quilts, so I figured I can try, but everything I read about attaching the hanging sleeve talks about how it shouldn't go through to the front, which makes sense, but this is quilted so tightly there is no room to just get the backing. Maybe if I put my loosest blocks in the top corners?
