Snowflake Quilt / Scrappy Ombrè Version

Posted by Nicole Daksiewicz on

Hi friends!

Well, I finally got the binding on another Snowflake quilt that I finished a while ago. Isn’t it funny how you can finish a quilt top quickly and then sit around forever before basting, or quilting, or even adding a binding that doesn’t take very long?

I am notorious for waiting around for each of these steps, but finally have a finished rainbow beauty that I am excited to share with you today!

This will go into my shop soon, I hate to part with it because it is honestly one of my absolute favorites but I have so many already - why not share the love?!

This is the Scrappy version of my Snowflake quilt pattern - which includes 2 other versions to make (not counting the many new ways you guys have made this a fun pattern!) I used a beautiful stack of about 26 Ombré Confetti Metallic fat quarters - a fabric line from V and Co for Moda Fabrics. I love love love Vanessa’s Ombreé lines and this one was the perfect combo for the snowflake quilt. The white and metallic gold confetti made for a snowstorm effect behind my snowflake! I have seen several of you use this line on the pattern - including just using one single shade and outlining the snowflake with the darker shade going lighter as you work away from the Snowflake - it’s really stunning!

We had a SUPER snowy couple of days this week so I had to get bundled up quickly to head out for some snowy pictures! What a winter wonderland it was! I love how the rainbow of colors really pop against the snowy backdrop and will be a fun one to keep out all winter long - long after the holidays are over.

The backing rainbow snowflake fabric was a perfect match that I found at my local Joann Fabric store.

How much fun would a Frozen quilt be for your little Elsa and Anna lover? I found this fabric online and think it would be so much fun for a backing to a frosty colored Snowflake Quilt.

I have a few questions on how I get my quilt photographs on my own - I use a bluetooth tripod! This is one of my MOST useful quilting tools ever, linking here in case you need one for yourself. This is the only way I can get quilt photos when I am at home by myself, the tripod holds my large iphone, has a stable tripod base that extends to make it quite tall. You can also use it as a selfie stick if needed. The bluetooth clicker that is attached is easy to connect to your smart phone. All you have to do it hold it in your hand (while you also hold the quilt up) and snap away! Above is an accidental snap I got while trying to wrestle my quilt in the snow!

Thanks for stopping by today! I am including a photo below that makes a great Pinterest Save for later. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas this next week and stay warm!

  • I bought this pattern and fabric the year it came out. I loved it so much but it was a bit ambitious for me at the time. I’ve learned a lot since then. Maybe this is the year?😄
