Snowflake quilt pattern

Modern Handcraft’s snowflake quilt has been popping up in our instagram feed and adding a much-needed pop of joy for a while now, thanks to the jam-packed hashtag #snowflakequilt. This is a great scrap buster as it suits scrappy fabrics, and it’s beginner-friendly as its pieced using whole squares and the odd half square triangle. Once complete it will measure 60x72in.
