That terrific snowflake pattern is in the Nov/Dec '03 issue of Quiltmaker - that I found quite by accident under my bed. Ahem.....along with about 30 others......and NO they haven't been there since '03!

Here's the whole quilt -
Yea, knock your socks off! I only made the one block, and it's pretty good size. As shown the quilt finishes at 65 x 75, and the magazine rates it as "Easy" which it is if you can pay attention and know how to paper piece. Me - not so much. I have the attention span of a 2 year old, but I'm going to take another whack at it.

I promised you links to some great shopping, and really I can give them all to you in one click: Check This Out. This was new to me and I might be the last one on earth to find it, but hey - it's a great resource! 590 online shops, and they give a thumbnail review of each one. HOURS of shopping enjoyment, and no $$ for gas, LOL!
We were promised snow and I'm waiting at the window, but nothing yet here. Over where I work it snowed and rained most of the day without sticking, so I still have hopes for tonight. It's a big novelty here, and I'm sorry that so many are having such troubles with it. Too bad we couldn't have a more equatable distribution of weather! Anyway - I have to get back to my window now - watch me fall asleep and freeze to the glass -- hee hee.....

Thanks for showing the magazine. I went to the web site and found it. I just love it and will hopefully make it this year.

The snowflakes are gorgeous, better than the real, outside kind! These last.

It is a very pretty pattern but it certainly doesn't look "easy"

Thanks for the shopping link!! I saved it and now I have a reason to spend even more hours on the computer instead of quilting -LOL!!!
