There is a lot of snow in Minnesota this year, so I thought it was time to design a snow quilt.
This one is a lot of fun as all my blocks come from the Electric Quilt 8 Block Library. I decided not to get too fussy -- so there will be a lot of 8 pointed snowflakes rather than the traditional 6 pointed ones. 8 pointed snowflakes are typically much easier to piece.
This is a great tutorial for new Electric Quilt 8 owners (or those that have been away for a while) as we will explore grabbing fabrics and blocks from the Electric Quilt libraries. There is so much to choose from.
Here is my challenge for you. Find approximately 15 snowflake blocks in the library. Or if you are up to it draft your own blocks. Color them and save them to your Project Sketchbook.
Remember that in Electric Quilt, saving is a two step process. Make sure to name your project. If you haven't named it, it will say unnamed at the top. Then select add to sketchbook for each block. Super simple -- once you know the two steps.
Share your favorite colored snowflake and let us know if it was from the library or one you designed yourself. Or maybe it is a hybrid.
