Snowflake QAL

My quilty friend Rose of SomethingRoseMade and I unknowingly have done two Quilt Alongs together this year.  The first was Kathleen's Awesome Ocean and the second was Sandra's Centred.  Rose did something really generous for me and when I wrote to thank her, she proposed we do a third together, but on purpose this time.  We discussed a few options and chose the Jelly Snowflake QAL, going on now with the Fat Quarter Shop. 

I am using Glacier View by Island Batik.  This is the collection I used for my Christmas Tree Skirt and I have some leftover.  It's not specifically a jelly roll (the mystery QAL is designed for a jelly roll) but I can cut 2 1/2" strips from what I have left.  And using yardage gives me a little flexibility, like using the great pale blue print for the center of the stars, above.  I've paired Glacier View with Island Batik's solid white.

The Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt runs through the month of July.  There is still time to get caught up if you want to join me & Rose--we'd love the company!  I'm loving this combination of blues! Blocks come out on Thursdays.  I've made the first two and am ready to see what's next!


  1. These cool blue stars are perfect for the hot July weather. Looking lovely.

  2. What fun, you two sewing together! I love the blues of that IB fabric, and I'm not really much of a blue fan. Will be fun to watch your progress!

  3. I love this and the Glacier Blue IB is gorgeous. I have two other quilts I must get onto but you are temptresses!

  4. Emily,
    You have chosen perfect fabrics for this QAL!!!
    It's going to be one beautiful quilt!
    Happy Quilting! :-)

  5. Emily these are perfect. I've been thinking of starting that QAL. Can hardly wait to see how this turns out!!
