A Finished Quilt - Snowflake Pattern by Modern Handcraft

Pieced, quilted, and's Snow Day!

I pieced this quilt at the beginning of the year (you can read more about that here) then had it quilted at Olde City Quilts in Burlington, NJ, a shop that is local-ish to me.  I chose the design from among the many they offer (it's a pantograph).  The thread is Wedgewood blue and shows up against the dark blue background and the white snowflake without having excessive contrast.  I'm very happy with it.  

The design is off-season for now but come January, this quilt will be showcased in the quilt hanging spot in my kitchen.  The design is by Modern Handcraft, a pattern called SnowflakeThe original design creates a quilt that is 60" by 72" but I wanted a smaller quilt for my kitchen spot which is best for a quilt that is 35-40" wide.  No problem; the pattern is essentially a mosaic and I just reduced the size of the basic square unit to be two-thirds of the original size.  So my quilt is 40" by 48" with all the detail of original, just reduced in size.

It is an extremely well-written pattern, very easy to follow.  In fact, I think a beginner could do it though accuracy is key to get the graphic look of the snowflake as angles must come together perfectly.  

Now, back to my quilt alongs!

  1. You are definitely going to be ready for next years winter weather. I like the quilting design you chose and the littler blue thread for the quilting. I'm not a big fan of high contrast thread colors too. Your Snowflake quilt is lovely and the graphic look is a nice modern touch.

  2. Adorable and love the quilting on this Cathy. This quilt intriguing pattern is quite cute......nice job!
