Snowfall (Snjókoma)


I have long been fascinated by the intricacy and variety of snowflakes. Many years ago I took a class with Paula Nadelstern on piecing intricate snowflakes using blue and white fabrics. At that time, I completed three snowflakes, but then put the project aside. I only recently returned to it to finish the quilt for an upcoming gallery show in Iceland. In addition to basing a couple of my flakes on Paula's published designs, I really enjoyed finding unique snowflake photographs and drafting my own original designs, then interpreting them in cloth, and finally combining them into a snowfall. I added even more flakes in the subtle quilting patterns. The result is, I think, the ultimate blue and white quilt.


"Snowfall" was part of the Sapphire Celebration special exhibit at the 2019 Houston International Quilt Festival.
