Finally finished.  This one is a tiny 10 x 7.5 inch wall quilt to be donated for Alzheimer's research.  (They can't be bigger than 9 x 12 inches for consideration for donation.)


A closer picture of the snowflake. 


I was messing with the photo editing to try and get an essentially all white quilt to show up in a photo.  The colors are completely weird, but the stitching shows up pretty well, including the random thread sticking to the top.  Why don't I ever see those until AFTER I take the pictures?  I'd love any suggestions you have for getting a decent picture of it. 

The details.  Cotton muslin hand quilted with quilting thread and pearl cotton.  Cotton batting and backing.  Quilter's cotton binding, machine stitched and hand finished on the back. 

There is more about it on my blog.  http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2011/08/strange-winter.html
