Snowalong Sew-along Starting Monday!

Here’s another one!
Snowflake 2
Snowflake 5  v1I hope you’re not tired of snowflakes yet because I’m hoping for a blizzard!  The fabric kind, with no cold and no shoveling. Let’s have a snowflake sew-along!

Snowflake 7 v5You can pop over to the new Snowalong page on this blog for all the details. (click the link or the tab at the top of this page).  In a nutshell, starting Monday I’m going to make my snowflake block patterns available as a free download for a limited time so you can sew along with me, and I will host a weekly linky party so we can see the snow flurries in everyone’s sewing rooms. 

Snowflake 2 v1There will be one new pattern for a 9” snowflake block each week.  Depending how you color it, you can make at least 3 different snowflake variations from each pattern!  It will be fun to see which versions different people choose to make, or what new ones pop up. 

Snowflake 4 v1This will be a very relaxed party.  Make one block or make many, it’s up to you!  If you miss a week, join us the next week.  Pop in and pop out again, we’re really very informal here.  If you don’t have a blog but want to participate, send me your pictures and I’ll share them for you.

Snowflake 6  v4I have been playing with layouts and colours.   Winter colours, Christmas colors.  Big quilts and little ones. I’ll share some of those during the Snowalong too. 

Snowflake 1 version 3Oh! Oh! Oh!  I even learned how to make a blog button for this Snowalong!  Feel free to grab the code from the Snowalong page!

I’ll leave you with an EQ drawing of the quilt I’m probably NOT going to make, because it really needs a whole lot of snowflakes…but I suppose it could be a long-term project…

Sample quilt 1


  1. Look at all those snowflakes! I can't wait to try one.

  2. I'm gonna try it!! I am not experienced (AT ALL) with PPing but I just love your snow flakes! And hey, three a week. . . I can do that right? LOL I feel a snow storm coming to the AZ desert! :)

  3. Wow! That would be one impressive quilt. Can't wait to see what you do make.

  4. I'm going to jump in (preferably NOT into a snowbank ever again in my life) and try some of these. They look like fun!

  5. Well, there goes my list of goals for the month! I see flurries in the forecast in Florida =)

  6. You are tempting me! Those snowflakes are going to be gorgeous, and I love the blue you are using! I have to keep telling myself that I simply do not have time right now for that, but you can bet I'll be watching! ---"Love"

  7. I will come play in the snow! I'll looking forward to getting out of the Florida heat for a bit.

    1. The Monday post turned out to be the late Sunday night post, but the link to the pattern is there. Come jump into a snowdrift to cool off!
