Yeah! Snow Days! Or maybe I should say Cold Days. Whatever you call it, school was cancelled for two days this week due to the frigid temps. We teachers get just as excited as the students when we get that phone call from school. In the spirit of snow, I wanted to share my snowflake applique template.
Back to quilting. As I have mentioned, I made a wall hanging for every month of the year. This wall hanging was for January using snowflake fabric.
However after a couple years of looking at it on the back of our front door, I decided it was too plain, so I went back and appliqued snowflakes to it.
I made the snowflakes using the old fashioned method of folding a piece of paper into squares, and cutting out small diamonds and triangles.
It is hard to see, but I used fusible applique and a very small zig zag stitch. By appliqueing it after the quilt was done, it self-quilted itself at the same time.
Here is a PDF file of these snowflake appliques. The large center square is 6", with appropriate setting and corner triangles of approximately one half and one quarter that size.
