Snow Flake Shimmer Update

     Somewhere in a small city in Southern Ontario there is a woman doing the happy dance.  Can you see her waving her arms around with excitement.  That woman is me, happy because I've finished my Snowflake Shimmer quilt top. Yay!



     Here it is on the line right before a large wind came and pushed the pegs on the right hand side together squishing the quilt.  I missed the deadline for the last progress link up so I'll be linking up with Beth at Main Crush Monday instead.  I love the design that Yvonne came up with and the top came together in a unique way that made it fun to work on.  I'm not sure if I'll have time to quilt it before the final linkup so this may be the post I link up with. I've got quite a list of quilts that are in the quilting queue.  Most of them are destined for other places but this one should be staying right here!

It looks beautiful and I'm not surprised you're keeping it!

Great color palette. Almost extreme contrast without using black. Makes the white really stand out.

It's fun design and your color way made it particularly elegant and minimalist. Again, I'm eager to see how you quilt it))

Like Catherine says, I am not surprised you're keeping it, I will be keeping mine. Aren't they great? I think we have all had problems trying to photograph them on the washing line, Tish, you and myself. I look forward to seeing how you quilt yours, whenever, however.

I love your fabric choices Lisa. That dark background really sets off the snowflake. Beautiful!

P.S. Someone in Cleveland, OH is doing the happy dance with you! :)

Paige said...

Congrats on finishing the top even though you missed the link up! I'd happy dance too! The design really pops with your dark background. Looks great!

Jayne said...

wow! This turned out beautiful! I love your colors and I'm sure the quilting will take it over the top!

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

Oh it turned out so beautifully, Lisa! Congratulations on getting it pieced and I'm doing a happy dance with you! :)

This is so lovely ..... what a result! I wish I could have QAL too but time would not allow. Look forward to seeing how you quilt it.

Renee said...

This turned out so great! I love the greys you chose!

Gina said...

I love the colours you used. I need to make mine now xx

Maryse said...

How beautiful it is!! I love the simplicity of your quilt; the white really pops against the background. Yes, it's definitely a keeper!!

It looks fabulous. I think this quilt has become a favorite for so many of us quilters. I had to drop mine off with a professional long arm resource as it's just too big for me to quilt on my domestic machine. I can't wait to see what you do with yours!

Sandra Walker said...

It turned out wonderfully Lisa! Now I know what caught my eye on the northeast horizon: it was your arms waving around as you did the happy dance! LOL

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

I see you dancing. It looks great. I'm hoping to get mine quilted for the link up, but I'm not holding my breath.

Diana @ Red Delicious Life said...

You definitely should be doing a happy dance, it's beautiful. Can't wait to see how you decide to quilt it once you get a chance.

Just beautiful Lisa! My kind of colours and great contrast.

Tish Stemple said...

You finished!!! I'm dancing with you!! It looks great :)

It came together beautifully, congrats on finishing the top! Looking forward to seeing how you will quilt it!

The contrast in your quilt is beautiful. I like how it turned out. Seeing all the pretty top emerging, I feel I should have joined but then again - I have hardly got time as it is =)
