Less is More

Put this project aside cuz I wasn't sure how to quilt it. I envisioned beautiful FMQ snowflakes fluttering down from the heavens. But that vision far exceeds my skill level. So I was stumped. Today it hit me. A simple design was all it needed.  I left the markings on so you could see the stitching. I used chalk on the blue portion. I LOVE working with chalk.  Its so forgiving if you make a mistake.

PS - If you are snowbound in the Southeastern states, I apologize for this snow-related post.  When we got 19 inches last month, I cringed every time I saw a sign that said "Let it Snow!"   Take Care - Chris

Nice colors for a snowflake runner. The combination of dark and light blues really give an icy feeling to it. I like the straight line quilting - perfect!

I love your tablerunner. When I saw it I thought that would be a great way for me to use up my blue scraps. Thanks for the inspiration.
