Nordic Snowflakes Color Option
Watercolor FlowerUse fabrics that have a watercolor look to give the geometric quilt pattern a softer appearance. In this wall hanging version of the snowflake became a stylized flower. A multicolor mottled print provides an interesting backdrop to the flower while still being calm enough to prevent visual overload from multiple busy prints.u0026nbsp;Get the free quilt pattern here.u0026nbsp;
