Snowflake Completed

Mailed this off today to WOCS after completing this afternoon.  It was fun stitching with the variegated threads.   I used the DMC B5200 snow white, and 791, and DMC Color Variations 4220, 4235.  The pattern for this quilt, was designed by Brooke Nolan of http://www.brookesbooks.com/ specially for WOCS.  Thank you Brooke.

    1. Thank you Mii! I have enjoyed doing it as I don't use a lot of the color variations threads that I have on hand. It will be nice in a quilt for WOCS with others snowflakes! :)

    1. Thanks Carin! Looking forward to seeing once the quilt is completed by WOCS. They allowed blues and lavenders family of colors, so should be pretty. :)

  6. Thanks so much Valerie! I know what you mean. I've tried two different ways, stitch all to the right and then back to the left. And stitch each stitch individually. It does have a different look. Big Hug!! :)
