Snowflakes, Snowflakes Everywhere

Happy New Year, all! I was hoping to be back yesterday, but Mother Nature had other plans and the kids got an extra day of Christmas break. More ice than snow this time, but I made a snowflake block so that's today theme. This is the December block for Sheila in my Simply Solids Carmine group. I absolutely adore this block, but it isn't for the faint of heart. There was much unsewing. I left the extra so Sheila can trim it to fit with the other blocks. The tutorial can be found on Mad Quilter's Disease.

This was made with Kona Cerise, Red, Flame, Orange, Kumquat and Papaya. And you know how I know that? 'Cause I got a Kona colour card for Christmas. It's just so purdy.

Speaking of Kona, the Wake Up to Kona Blog Hop begins today. Here is the fun line-up of participants:
