Midcentury snowflake quilt

snowflake quilt from IQSC

International Quilt Study Center, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 1997.007.0682

Feed Dog Flurry Look what I found! I can’t remember exactly what inspired me to put “snowflake” into the search engine at the International Quilt Study Center, but this quilt came up. It was hand-appliqu├ęd in about 1963 from a kit by the Paragon Company. I love the snowflake blocks, but that’s a crapload of needleturning! Next time I need to practice my points, maybe I’ll try one of the blocks—I think I’d be breaking out the fusible web to do a whole quilt.
