Inject some color into a dreary winter with this whimsical arrangement of blocks featuring snowmen and wonky stars. Reach for tonal scraps to create the stars and have fun playing with the scrappy border.
In this video sewing class, quilting expert Nancy McNally presents tips to arrange the snowman blocks for a variety of expressions. She also discusses the finer points of piecing the wonky star blocks. This delightful Winter Wishes Wall Quilt is a perfect project for a beginner quilter!
In this video, you’ll learn how to:
Build snowman blocks with raw edge machine applique.
Piece the wonky star blocks.
Add a scrappy border.
Let’s join Nancy for a quick peek inside the classroom. We just love how playful this pattern is. While we think it looks wonderful in the bright color pallet, we think winter blues would look great too. So go ahead, stretch your skills and make a few of those wonky blocks.
Love the way it looks but still on the fence? Well, take a look at this finished quilt top by Debra. You can see that she leaned into the bright color pallet and it looks spectacular!
The quilt measures 43″ x 43″ finished but you can easily add a border to make it larger.
