Quilt of the Month

This picture is Pat Sloan’s version of a Snowflake Mystery quilt that Fat Quarter Shop offered for free a few years ago.

I wish I could tell you mine is finished. It is not. I have seen this quilt on Pinterest in lots of colors with all kinds of borders.

This is another beautiful version of a similar pattern by Nancy C, I am sure she must have used Edyta Sitar’s instructions for the borders. You can find them for free here.
