Winterkist Pillow in Fat Quarterly

I was asked to be a part of the designer challenge for the Christmas issue of Fat Quarterly. I was given a small stack of Winterkist by Monica Solorio-Snow and asked to design a pattern with it.
I decided to go with the snowflake theme seen in so many of the prints and designed a snowflake paper pieced block.  I made up six of them and set them on a Charcoal Essex background with a patchwork border and gnome backing.  
If you’d like the pattern, it’s available in the Fat Quarterly Christmas Issue.  Enjoy!
I’ll be back tomorrow with Halloween costume pictures!


  1. This is so cute. When is that issue available?

  2. I love this. I was actually thinking about making a snowflake paper pieced pattern, but clearly you just did all the work for me. 🙂 I’m just not sure if I’m ready to think about snow just yet.

  3. I love this! Reason enough to ‘pick up’ this issue!

  4. Adorable snowflake pattern Amy!

  5. Wow! So very pretty Amy!

  7. I saw it this morning and instantly fell in love with it! Can’t wait to try it.

  8. I really love your cushion and I am definitely going to buy this issue now.

  9. Oh, this is nice! I will try put this pattern!

  10. Oh my gosh, that is so adorable! I just made snowflake sugar cookies with my granddaughter yesterday and they look like that.hahah.a.a.a
    Those look great against the gray!

  11. So cute and I just love Monica’s fabric! Guess I’m going to have to get the new issue of Fat Quarterly!

  12. Great pillow…and it can stay out all winter!

    Glad to see you made it through the storm ok….we had a huge fir tree fall across our drive and lost power for only 14 hours so all in all we were very lucky!

  13. Wow! Again, how do you do all of this? Do you ever sleep? Have you taught penny how to sew and put her to work? I’m always amazed at how original and well thought out all of your projects are. The pillow is awesome.

  14. Love your snowflake pattern!!

  15. Love your pillow! I haven’t purchased a Fat Quarterly in a while, so the Christmas issue just might be the inspiration I need.
