Twinkling Flurries Quilt

“I have many memories of freshly falling snow on Christmas Eve when there would be a peaceful hush over the world,” recalls designer Margaret Brewster Willingham. She captures the mood with her intricate snowflake quilt using reverse appliqué and frosty batiks. Choosing batik fabrics to showcase the dramatic snowflake blocks makes for a spectacular quilt! Plus, strip sets simplify the work of creating Sixteen-Patch quilt blocks.
