You can still see some purple from the marking pen... I went crazy with it trying to figure out how to quilt it and for once it didn't fade by the next day like it usually does when I don't want it too. The pattern is from birdbraindesign called snow happens
I made a couple of these folded stars-- ran out of time to make more.
Spent way too much time trying to get this top done... still not done. This is a sad tale. My mother sent me some Christmas flannel fabric fat quarter bundle for my birthday last year and I saw this pattern in American Patchwork and Quilting Dec 2013 issue on page 92 (please don't go and look--- it makes this top look sad). I thought it would be perfect too make this scrappy. The sad part is it was working out fine until I cut the light green fabric wrong.... sad day for me. I can not find more of this material so I had to improvise and sort and move and sort and lay it out. Then it got moved so I could finish Megan's Jean quilt... (which for some reason I don't have a picture of it... good thing it's at our house.. I will post a picture next time....) and then I had to re-sort and lay it out.. and lots of unpicking...... I hate this quilt at this moment... and it still needs borders and quilted....... I asked many times-- "Where is my mother? I wish she was here to fix it for me." I had to be a big girl and fix it myself..... does anyone want an unfinished quilt top?
