Those of you who are buried under feet of snow probably aren’t very interested in snowflakes right now, but I’ve been thinking of how to pair my snowflake blocks with other pieced elements.
Lara over at Buzzin Bumble posted about some very pretty mini Delectable Mountain blocks a few weeks ago, and shared a free tutorial and paper foundations. At first glance it doesn’t seem that this block could be paper pieced but Lara uses a very clever technique to make it work. The paper foundation can even be printed double-sided so that you have guide lines and sewing lines on both sides of your paper. No more guessing where to place your fabric!
Here’s my sample block. It is 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” to finish at 2” x 4”.
Here’s one way I’m thinking of using more of them with snowflakes.
The problems begin when I try to figure out how to find the time to fit in another project… Oh well, what’s one more project on the list of planned quilts?
