Snowdrop 20″ Paper Pieced Pillow


This is a PDF pattern that includes the foundation pattern for creating the snowdrop block plus directions to finish the pillow top (or mini quilt if you prefer).

I live in New England and some years, the winters feel really long! When I see the Snowdrops emerge (often out of the snow), I know that spring is really coming.
