Snowflake Suite of Patterns for the 2018 Quilt-A-Long


The next Quilt-A-Long begins December 31, 2017 and will conclude in March 2018. There will be nine challenges over ten weeks with the goal of a completed top at the end! Prizes will be given away to participants as we advance through the QAL.

Patterns designed with you in mind!

Take a peek into some of the pattern elements designed to keep you on track, organized and sewing smoothly!

  • a new 20" paper pieced block (two of the three patterns can be EXCLUSIVELY paper pieced)
  • new illustrated diagrams take the place of photos to make printed copies clearer
  • better, clearer cutting charts (with boxes to tick, so satisfying!)
  • fabric positioning diagrams ON THE TEMPLATES will help you paper piece without frustration
  • new guides will tell you exactly which of your pre-cut fabrics to use for each unit
  • diagrams for every step of the way when you're sewing the top together
  • feathered star "maps" that will allow you to customize your fabric placement
 

Suggested materials:

• Sewing machine, basic sewing tools and supplies

• Fabric as specified (see fabric requirements linked for each pattern above)           

• Batting

• Add-A-Quarter ruler

• Foundation paper or printer paper

• Paper cutting scissors or dull rotary blade for cutting paper templates             

• Fabric glue (optional)

 

The following materials are needed for the sewing the Fierce Feathered Star block (not paper pieced):
