Texas Snowflake quilting
I had to put aside the NYE Mystery quilt to get a top quilted for an upcoming housewarming gift. Decided to use the Texas Snowflake quilt from a few years ago. It was a Carol Doak BOM from her Yahoo Group. Remember this??

And here's a closeup of the simple quilting I'm doing. I created the design from a pattern in the fabric. See it in the large triangle fabric piece next to the quilting? I made the pattern into a panto, but I probably could have done this free motion, too.

I had planned on practicing some fancy quilting on this one as there's a lot of open space to play with. However, since it's needed quickly, no fancy stuff this time!
