Frosty Flakes - The Quilt!

I so enjoyed making the little snowflakes 
that this quilt just came together fairly easily and I love the look...
 I just needed time to finish it .....
normally it would only take a night BUT
with a bump to my DD2 head 
and an emegency doctors call
 I suspected she had hurt her neck
I was a bit panicked as she wouldn't move it...
for few hours, even with the doctor saying- all Ok
and then DD1 sprained her foot at a birthday party jumpy castle.... 
so off to hospital yet again... 
I finally managed to get a sewing afternoon in and stitch down the binding.... 
I used a wider than I normally do and white but it looked the best.
I used 84 X 2" squares for the sashing and then a 4" border...
also some little stitched and beaded stars in the middle corners.
 I can't wait to put it up at Christmas... maybe a little sooner..
 How is your little snowflakes coming along?????
 Another pattern this Wednesday...
 But here are the links for the ones already released.
 Have a great day!

 Hugs Dawn x x x

I am truly sorry I have removed an earlier remark I left, right under my first comment. Someone left me a note about it, took me a while to relaize what they were even talking about. But I think this was the only place I left a message or two today. My second comment was supposed to be about MY first comment. I meant MY bad typing, because I wrote DREAT not GREAT.... I am always adding word misspelling, leaving words out, puncutaiotn etc because of my typing...........that remark was about my typing not Dawn's. But I realize the way it read was like I was saying she had bad typing. NOOOOO, just ME!! Am truly sorry Dawn, I was NOT was referring to yours!!!!
