We’re stitching away with another block in the Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt Week 2! This week we have a sweet little star block that is fun and easy to sew up!
If you’re new to the Jelly Snowflake Quilt, this is a fun mystery quilt sew along hosted and created by the Fat Quarter Shop! Every week for the month of July they are releasing a block of the quilt. There are a few of us sewing along and each week a different quilter is hosting the pattern and video! This week it is my turn – you can find the pattern at the end of the post!
The quilt is perfect for 2 1/2″ strips or you can use yardage! That’s what I did – I’m cutting my own strips from this darling new Santa Claus Lane fabric. Since I am using yardage I was able to cut a print for the centers of my star blocks!
You will need to make eight of these little stars and they go together super quickly!
For this week’s blocks I chose the darker green prints in the collection. I think they really make the stars stand out! I didn’t worry about the directional fabrics – these stars will be turned in different directions in the final layout so I sewed them up so they’d look good in any direction.
This week I’m hosting the pattern for Week Two Blocks!
