Simply Snow setting is ready for you!

It's been a long time coming, but it's ready!  I'm excited to announce that the Simply Snow setting for my snowflake blocks, featuring 5 quilt sizes,  is now available as a free download here.

It may look a little daunting, but the strip piecing makes the setting a lot faster to piece than seems at first glance.  I promise you will not need to piece a gazillion tiny squares!  

Both the queen size and the full size versions use all 26 snowflake variations from the Snowflake Blocks Complete Set pattern.

85" x 97"

Simply Snow - Full size layout
78.5" x 90.5"

The only difference between the queen and full sizes is the pieced nine-patch border on the queen version.   Similarly, the twin size is the large throw with a pieced border added.

63.5" x 75.5"

The small throw is a good choice if you want to make just a few blocks.

47.5" x 59.5"

The pattern is for the sashing, corner blocks and borders only.  The snowflake blocks are available separately in my Etsy shop (or you can ask  for a print version at your favourite quilt shop).

You could also skip the snowflakes and substitute any block that finishes at 9".  To get the full effect, you'll need to plan your block backgrounds to match the colours in the sashing units.  This will make sense when you look at the pattern!

Happy Quilting,
