I wanted a quilting design that complemented the winter theme of the quilt. After a bit of experimenting with Art & Stitch (computerized quilting design software), I came up with this continuous-line design. My friend, Whitney, aptly named it "Windswept Snowflakes." I thought it fit perfectly with the swirly snowflake design.
The snowflakes were raw-edge appliqued, or as my quilting buddies call it 'scrapliqued', using silver glitter thread.
