Snowy Forest for December Quilt Block Mania

How better to wrap up the year with a Snowy Forest quilt block?

Thanks to the Quilt Block Mania 'forest' theme this month, I went with snow to make it a perfect block for December. 

Take a look at all the other 'forest' themed blocks from my quilt designer friends.

These are free for December 2023. After that, the designers reserve the rights to continue to offer them for free or as a paid pattern. So get them while they last!

In order to easily deal with the angles in my Snowy Forest block, foundation piecing is required. It's pretty easy to make the trees and the snow, with 5-6 pieces each. And again, fat quarters and foundation paper are all that's needed to make one block. I just love how the snow banks turned out!

One foundation piecing pattern is included in the Snowy Forest pattern. You'll need to print three, but print as many as you like. Then just follow the numbering and coloring on the templates to make the trees - easy peasy! The finished block measures 12" x 12", a nice size to foundation piece.
