This bright sunny snowflake was published in the McCall’s Fall/Winter 1972-73 Needlework Magazine. The yellow gives the snowflake a very “sun-like” appearance. I thought it would look great appliqued in white on a mid blue ground to look more like a real snowflake. Done as a bed-sized quilt would give it an Hawaiian look. Embroidered white on white, in faux suede and given a trapunto technique, it would make a modern, sophisticated pillow.

McCall’s gave a 1/4 pattern. I have put it together for a full, round pattern.
