(Pay no attention to the pattern from my flannel-backed tablecloth showing through ;-)
I knew immediately I wanted to make triangle shaped icicles for round 2–the quilt insisted that I add the word icicles and that it had to be on the same border with the icicles themselves. If you look closely at the letters, you'll see that all but the c's are based on triangles. The large tree (made from triangles) was an easy choice. I made it much larger than the existing trees in an attempt to create a little perspective in my snowy landscape.
I didn't find a rule that said the borders actually had to fit the sides of the quilt-in-progress, so I figured it was OK to be liberated and leave it hanging off the edge. I'll have to deal with it eventually, but for now, my quilt is L-shaped ;-)
My fabric choices were meant to add some print and texture to the work-in-progress while continuing the graphic, simple blue and white center.
