|Winter Wonderland Snow Frame|
This year I found some slightly larger snow frames (6½" X 4½"). I think that these have much more potential!
I made this one using Christmas scraps, since my holiday fabric stash stayed in the basement this year.
I used a blue background fabric with snowflakes and stars, and covered it with a tulle of gold stars.
For the foreground I used some cute frolicking deer, a couple of tree fabrics and embellished it with some fussy cut bits. My niece was very impressed that I had made it - she thought that it was store bought (when you're 12, that's a good thing).
I've always wanted to make postcard size art quilts so I think that these could be a snowy variation. The piece fit very well inside the frame, although I'm fairly sure I didn't quilt it.

This is the snow globe from last year. It was two-sided and lights up, but wase much more difficult to work with. I'm not at my best working on very small things!
What I learned:
- I love playing with fabric on smaller projects that have little to no cost (in time or fabric) if I mess up.
- I bought 2 extra snow frames (on sale) after the holidays. I'm not sure that I'll have time this winter to make them...they may end up in the basement with the 5 snow globes from last year! :-)
