*** Minor, little baby pattern errors found! ***
Special thanks to Jan Kaye for spotting this error, it affects the 16" blocks for both the Snowflake Sampler and the Feathered Star Blizzard patterns:
Pages 22 & 23 referenced incorrect square measurements in the color guide, it's not material to the pattern, but it could be confusing, so my apologies! NOTHING NEEDS TO BE RECUT! To update the pattern, I removed the exact dimensions on the color guide, all you really need to know is whether to use the bigger or smaller square sizes where referenced.
We've FINALLY arrived! Week One is here!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make:
Snowflake Sampler: two 16" No Y Seam Feathered Star blocks
Star Flurries: two 20" No Y Seam Feathered Star blocks or Fierce Feathered Star blocks*
Feathered Star Blizzard: three 16" No Y Seam Feathered Star blocks
*Star Flurries people: any time I refer to the 20", please know that you have the choice of constructing the blocks with paper piecing (NYSFS) or conventional piecing (Fierce Feathered Star). Use whichever method makes you happy and since there are 9 blocks, maybe you'll get bored and want to try both ways!
Let's begin, shall we?!
Printing: You'll need to print the paper piecing sections onto your preferred foundation paper. I use regular printer paper, but please use what you're most comfortable with. The most important thing to remember is to print at 100% or "actual" size, making sure your print dialog box is not set to auto-scale. A test square of 1 inch is provided on every page so that you can ensure accuracy.
You may want to get all of your printing out of the way at once or you may just want to print one week's worth at a time. For me, I printed one star at a time so that I wasn't emotionally overwhelmed with ALL THE PAPER! :) You do you, as the kids say.
TIP! If all of your blocks will have the same coloring, you may want to print one set, note the colors on each section and then make your required number of copies.
TIP! Using a marker or colored pencil to note the section also works well (not really applicable before making copies unless you're using a color copier).
