Blue Frost Quilt Block Pattern

The cold Canadian winters can be trying, but also beautiful. When conditions are right, ice crystals form on the tree branches (called hoar frost) and it's a sight to see; it's truly magical. And in the sunlight, the snow takes on a gorgeous blue cast. This block is my tribute to the beauty of winter.

The sample block above is made with snow dyed cotton, which is ironic considering the name of this block. It's 12" x 12" and, no matter what colours you use, it would make a stunning blanket or wall hanging.

My favourite thing about this block is that it's Jelly Roll friendly. All the strips required are 2-1/2 inches wide. So, if you have any Jelly Rolls hanging around, this could be the block for you. It's quick to make up and a great project for quilters new to foundation paper piecing.
