Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. I can hardly wait to put up the tree, decorate the house and bake. I know festive etiquette rules state that Christmas decorating is not allowed before December 1st but being the rebel I am, Christmassy things start appearing in my house from Nov 1.
For those that show constraint, it doesn’t count for making Christmas projects. In the craft and quilting world, festive quilts, runners, gifts and pillows can be made all year round in ready for December. While dreaming of Christmas I designed the Hidden Snowflake block.
Living in a hot climate I never see snowflakes so, I thought it would be a fun block to make. The block finishes at 24″ and the large block makes a perfect size for a pillow, table runner or quilt.
I named the block, Hidden Snowflake, as it starts out like this …..
and with some slicing and dicing becomes this block ……….

The block was made with Michael Miller Fairy Frost.
The pillow backing is a print from Jason Yenter (In the Beginning fabrics) Australian Beauties.
I used the beautiful Aurifil variegated thread in light blues, 50wt cotton #3770 for quilting.
