Merry Mini Quilt Christmas Quilt Along: Week 2

Hello there and happy Tuesday! If you’re looking for a cute quilt along that is merry, mini, and Christmas related then you have definitely found the right place! If you are new around here, welcome to my blog! My name is Chelsi! I am a Moda Fabric Designer with my mom Sherri McConnell (A Quilting Life), I am a pattern writer (I started my pattern company a year ago), and I’m an all around creative soul! I love drawing so designing fabric has been an absolute dream come true! Plus sharing all of it with my mom has been the cherry on top!

Today is the second week of the Fat Quarter Shop Merry Mini Quilt Christmas Quilt Along and I am so excited to share my block with you! I love a good fun quilt along and these cute blocks make it really easy to join in!

I am using our Harper’s Garden fabric for my quilt! The reds, greens, and blues were a perfect fit to match the colors in Fat Quarter Shop’s mini quilt! I can’t wait to see your versions and fabric choices as well!

Block Two: The Snowflake Block

This week’s block is the Snowflake Block! I really enjoyed making this and I think it’s so cute! I was able to use some of the aqua and navy prints from Harper’s Garden for this block to give that perfect snowflake look! This block uses simple construction and goes together quickly! You can download the Snowflake Block here!

Fat Quarter Shop has prepared a YouTube video tutorial for this week’s block as well. You can watch it here!

Also before I forget…just in case you need some extra details, fabric requirements can be found here! Be sure to check back in next Tuesday for the third block for this mini quilt (it is so cute you guys)! Beverly will be sharing the block pattern next week and I have listed the remainder of the schedule below!

Find Fat Quarter Shop’s original post with all of the details about the Merry Mini Christmas Quilt Along here.

If you are quilting along, be sure to tag @fatquartershop in your posts and use the hashtags #merryminiquilt, #merryminimysteryquilt, #christmasinjuly, and #fqsquiltalong.

And just one more thing! You can find setting and finishing information on July 30th including a finishing video on the Jolly Jabber blog!

Happy sewing and thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll visit my blog again soon and I can’t wait to see all of your blocks!
