This year in our Alpine Quilt Group we're celebrating our 20th year of quilting together at the Red Church in Alpine, Utah. We have upwards of 50+ ladies that come each month to learn and share. We have lots of show & tells, trunk shows and special guest speakers even some local fabric designers. We do lots of block exchanges. Right now we are doing a four-patch, bullseye, and nine-patch exchange. Each year you can also participate in the yearly quilt project. This year we are doing a special quilt for our 20th anniversary.
The Snowflake block is my contribution to the quilt. I think there are over 20 ladies that were asked to present a 9" finished block for the quilt. We started with 20 ladies but our leader decided to add more so everyone could pick and choose the blocks they wanted to use based on their sewing experience. The applique blocks can be intimidating for the beginner quilters.
I picked this Snowflake Block to represent the SNOW that we get here in Utah. The block also represents the colors that I wanted to use to make the quilt. I'm a bit behind right now which is nothing new! It's on my summer list of things to get caught up on.
Here are the instructions to make this block. Just click on the picture below and you should be able to print your computer screen.
