Are you ready to start the Winter Nights quilt along? I hope you are joining me!
The pattern can be found in the Winter Wonderland Book. So let's turn to page 33 and we can start cutting. If you need a book, it can be found at your local quilt shop or you can order one up from The Fat Quarter Shop.
Here is the Winter Nights quilt~
It's a great quilt to use up some of those fat 1/4's you have been saving.
I am using the Prairie fabric from Corey Yoder of Moda Fabrics. Loving these bright and sunny fabrics. I can't wait to see how this quilt turns out!
Today we are going to start out with the star blocks. I will be cutting one star from each bright fat quarter. The star centers are going to be cut from the light prints.
So let begin...from EACH of the 4 light fat 1/4's for the star centers cut (3) F units and (24) G units.
I am using the cute little Alphabitties from the Fat Quarter Shop to mark the units as I cut them to keep all my pieces in order...love these little letters!
Then from background fabric cut (48) B units and (48) C units. This is all we need for the blocks. The rest that is listed in the book is for the ribbon sashing so we will be cutting that later.
From EACH bright fat 1/4, cut (8) H units, (8) I units and (4) J units.
I saved what is left of the bright fat 1/4's to be used in the ribbon sashing that we will be cutting and sewing later.
I will be back on Tuesday so we can get to the fun part....sewing!
