Artful Snowflake on a snowy day

Back in September, I was asked to design a quilt using Paula Nadelstern's Artful Snowflake fabric collection for Benartex. 

Would I like to work with Paual's gorgeous kaleidoscopic snowflakes? Yes, please!

I used four of the large snowflakes as the focal point and then added icy blue borders to create Starry Night. The best part? This is a free pattern download available on Benartex's website.
Download the free quilt pattern here.

I also received the fabric to make the quilt. I finished the top a week or so ago but was waiting for a snowy background to take photos. I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland. Perfect!

It was a little windy while I was taking photos:

This quilt was made to be photographed in a snowy scene.
The quilt itself is quite easy to make--Paula's snowflakes do all the work. I can't wait to quilt this!


  1. So pretty!!! She always designs beautiful fabrics!!!

  2. Having trouble cutting the small snowflakes to the size needed for the pattern without cutting into the others.Do I have to sacrifice the other snowflakes I'm not using?
