What a wonderful idea. I left snowflakes behind ten years ago when I moved here but haven't forgotten just how beautiful they are. You've captured that beauty in a very special way.

Such a great way of using up all those doilies our grandparents left behind. Your quilting is stunning!

This is beautiful. My mom makes a lot of doilies and this would be a grat way to create a project together. How did you attach the doilies to the top? Just through quilting?

Thanks! First I attached the doilies with a bit of glue and then I stitched the doilies with a little zig-zag after all the layers for the quilt were pinned. I show details on my blog -
