I’m just popping in quickly today to let you know that I have updated my Etsy and Craftsy shops to include this snowflake block that I designed a couple of years ago for Fat Quarterly.
At that time, I used 6 of these snowflakes, 6″ square each, to make a bed sized pillow cover. You can see my project post here.
I decided to now offer the pattern in multiple sizes. The 6″ size is perfect for use on smaller holiday items, like stockings. There is also a 9″ version, which I just made to include in my paper pieced Christmas/winter quilt. And a 12″ block that could also be used for as a quilt block or for a pillow cover with a border.
I hope that you find this pattern versatile and fun. It’s an easy paper pieced block, suitable for confident beginners. Advanced paper piecers can make it challenging by using a directional text print for the background (palm to forehead!).
