The pattern I have for this quilt is from the February 1999 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting, designed by Lynette Jensen, named Snowflakes.
I loved the pattern when I first saw it and immediately made this block.
I tucked it into the magazine and forgot about it for several years.
It took awhile to get back to the project -- most of the work has been done over the last two years.
The quilt measures 84" x 101". It wasn't easy trying to figure out how to get a picture of it in my teeny tiny hosue.
The challenge for me for August was to complete the quilt top. I'm not sure when I'll get this one quilted,but I hope it doesn't take me another 12 years.
At some point while I was making the squares, I decided to save the little triangles that were trimmed from the flying geese units. I had fun playing with them -
I think I'll get something small assembled from these squares a little sooner than the large quilt will be done. Each little triangle square is about 1-1/4".
Now I have to work backwards. Tomorrow I'll put my feet up and try to finish quilting and binding my July challenge quilt.
