We haven't seen too many real snowflakes in our area this year, so I'm creating a few for a quilt. So far, I've got two done and eight to go after taking a class on fusible applique. This technique does take some time with all the tracing, cutting, ironing and sewing, but I find that I enjoy the process. The ten snowflake blocks will be pieced together with blocks representing short and tall evergreens. Even though I'm a day early, I'll take a page from Punxsatawney Phil, our illustrious Pennsylvania groundhog, and predict that this quilt will be done by early spring.
