Let It Snow

About the Block of the Month & Stitch Along

The "Let It Snow" quilt finishes at 48" x 60".  It has 8 blocks consisting of appliqué, embroidery and machine pieced star blocks. The above image is a colored drawing of what the finished quilt will look like. Each month I will be releasing 1 block pattern which will include image of finished block, instructions, full-size patterns and layout for appliqué and embroidery designs. In addition, each month there will be a blog post with extra instructions, tips and images to help you complete the blocks. 
To get you started I've put together a free Get Ready PDF download (link is at the bottom of this post) that includes: 
  • Digital Image of the Quilt
  • Block Release Schedule
  • Fabric Requirements
  • Fabric Chart

Schedule

Block patterns will be released on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. As an email subscriber, you will receive a reminder about the block release and blog post.

Fabric Requirements

A complete list of fabric requirements is included. Follow my color scheme or choose your own.
For those wishing to replicate my quilt, I've also included a fabric chart listing the main fabrics I used, a thumbnail image of these fabrics and the manufacturer and numbers for each fabric.
