This what I am working on now. It is a kit that I received from my daughter for Christmas called Snow Chateau by Michael Miller Fabrics. The free pattern is here at the bottom of this page, but you really need all the fabrics that go with it to make it.
The border around it is stones and they are directional so it was tricky cutting them as I had to cut some strips the length of the fabric and some the width of the fabric. Then you have to make sure that you sew them on the right way up and not what I did and had to rip out 2 seams before I clued in.
The next step is to make quarter square triangles from 4 different fabrics and then applique snowflakes onto these squares.
I always do my tracing in the afternoon and then do the cutting while I am relaxing watching TV at night. That way I don't waste time when I could be sewing.
