Plural

After making our guild's January BOM into a nice 20" pillow, I confess I kept it right by me in the studio so I could glance at it every time I was in there.
I guess the fact is: I like it alot. I warned you I might make another, and I did. I used some of the same gray/brown and low-volume prints, with green as the accent color this time and just a few bits of aqua. Again, a simple wavy stitch of quilting down each row using Aurifil #2021 (Natural White), a flap-closure back of Kaufman's Essex in Natural and binding with BasicGrey's Grunge White
One of these days, I'll put them away to bring out again at Christmas. They are, after all, Christmas Snowflake blocks, using the delightful tutorial by Rachel/Wooden Spoon. Soon they'll go safely in the Christmas box. But not today. 

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday and Finish it up Friday.

I love them, especially how fun they are together.

I wasn't able to find the tutorial for this adorable quilt block. I found flicker pictures, but not the tutorial...

I totally understand why you do not want to pack them away! They are beautiful! And there is an awful lot of work in them, so they should be on display every day, despite their name!

I don't think they look too Christmassy - you could definitely have these out all year! They are gorgeous!

I think that they could be spring pillows too maybe if you like them. I can see how they will look beautiful with your Christmas tree skirt as well. They are lovely.

Don't put them away - leave them out all year round - after all, it is snowing snowflakes somewhere in the world all year round!

I can see why you're gazing fondly at them, but best put them away soon, or you'll just keep having the urge to make new ones ;o)
