Snowflakes in March......

Here it is March 28 and it snowed again today.  Oh please, Spring, will you finally come and just stay?

Anyways, I had a quilt top done for a very long time.  It was a guild challenge.
I don't remember the name of the block, 

but the block consists of a half square triangle and two quarter square triangles.  

I don't even remember how I came up with this design other than the fact that I had this fabric in my stash and with the medium shade blue looking  like snowflakes with a blue sky background,  I came up with "Snowflakes from Heaven".  

My stars seemed celestial, then there was blue sky  with snowfall that gave me the inspiration to make  the  "made snowflakes" falling from the sky. 

So, it's been loaded on the machine for a week and today with the snow outside, it seemed like a good day to get it done. 

I did swirls on most of the quilt in a light gray.  When I came to a "white snowflake", I did that in white feathers. 

The top is done. 

Here's a peek at the backing.  Perfect, huh?

I found that fabric a few weeks ago for 60% off.  Couldn't go wrong there. 

Well, this is one of four UFO's that have been sitting there waiting for me to get to them.  Hopefully, I am going to get this trimmed up and bound soon and then on to the next one.  

Spring can come and stay  anytime now.
