Snowflake Quilt

Robin made this lovely blue Snowflake quilt using a pattern by Modern Handcraft. She adapted the pattern to make the full snowflake and added borders to make it a bed sized quilt.

I quilted it with the Bora Bora pantograph to give the feel of wind blowing all the snowflakes in the prints. Used white So Fine thread and white Quilters Dream 80/20 batting.

Robin brought a beautiful blue Grunge backing.

So I have been playing with my new macro lens which has a good learning curve when it comes to taking pictures in manual mode. Here are a few images I have captured so far in my yard.

The unwelcomed forest tent Caterpillar but when you get up close the markings are beautiful.
