Starry Bright Sky QAL: Pattern 5a Fabric Cut Out/Snowflake

Alida sent out the pattern for the block to the folks who posted photos of the previous month's assignment.  This time she challenges us to cut out a fabric snow flake, then to mount it on back ground fabric to make a 12.5 inch block.

I did this pretty quickly...
I practiced using some construction paper. The paper was way too thick to cut all the design, but I liked the way it looked.

 I didn't have and fusible fabric so I just starched the fabric before I folded it, and when I put it on the background.  I used painters tape to keep the cut piece in place and it worked fine.

This was the first one I completed today.  I kept the walking foot on, and stitched close to all the cut areas.

It will be interesting to see how the other folks interpret the challenge!

I'm linking up to the sharing screen for the blocks for the Starry Bright Sky QAL:

It's fun to see how everyone is interpreting the blocks Alida has designed for us!

I'll post the next block in the next post!

Added 6-4-18:  Went to an open house and saw this pretty snowflake pillow on the guest bedroom.  They also had a textured pillow...


  1. That looks beautiful!! It has been fun seeing how every star is different and similar at the same time :) Thanks for linking up the picture!
