Snowflake Motif

 Snowflake Motif

Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This motif can be used in an afghan or if made with thread can be a snowflake ornament. It is fast and easy to make and you could make several in an evening. Also if you make it into an afghan, it makes a great take along project. Imagine making all of the motifs in white with the last round in dark blue then stitched together with dark blue. It would look like snowflakes floating in a field of blue.
