Christmas in August

Since I wanted to practice making a pillow with piping, I decided to use the first Snowflake block for the Quilt Along as the pillow top.

I stitched the white snowflake with gold thread.
There was just enough green and gold fabric left over for me to make a border.
I am not too happy with this, but it is just for practice.

I was successful in cutting bias strips for the piping, but my sewing machine was not cooperating, as I sewed in the cording.
The under stitches were loose.
I will work on trying to fix this problem tomorrow.
This is the second Snowflake block for the QAL. This time, I  only used six points.

The block needs pressing.
