Instructions for Creating Your Quilt:

Trace all applique shapes onto Heat N Bond Light. Fuse Heat N Bond to wrong side of applique fabrics.

Cut out applique. Set aside the snowman's right hand. On all other pieces, remove backing paper.

Arrange the snowman pieces on the 30 ½" x 30 ½" center square, and the letters on the 7 ½" x 53 ½" border 2 strips. The bottom of the snowman should line up with the bottom of the square. Be sure to keep all snowman pieces ¼" away from side and top edges so they won't go in to the seam allowance. Once you are satisfied with the placement, fuse in place following package instructions.

Stitch the 30 ½" long border 1 pieces to the sides of the center. Press seams out.

Stitch the 35 ½" long border 2 pieces to the top and bottom. Press seams out.

Remove the backing paper from the right arm. Check placement, then fuse in place.

Use a buttonhole stitch and matching thread to stitch around all the snowman and letters applique, securing it in place.

Stitch the 7 ½" x 53 ½" border 2 strips to the top and bottom. Make sure the words "let it" are on the top, and the word "snow" is on the bottom. Double-check to make sure the words are right-side up before you sew. Press seams out.

Let It Snow Quilt Pattern

Collect the 28 snowball centers and 112 snowball corners.

Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other on the backs of all the snowball corners using a chalk pencil or water soluble marking pen.

Place a snowball center right side up. Place a snowball corner right side down so that the line on the back does not point to the corner—it cuts off the corner. Stitch on this line.

Trim off the corner, leaving a ¼" seam allowance.

Repeat for all four sides.

Press corners open, revealing the snowball block.

Repeat, making a total of 28 snowball blocks.

Stitch the snowball blocks into rows of 7 blocks. Make 7 total snowball blocks. Stitch one row to each side of the quilt. Press seams in. Stitch the remaining rows to the top and bottom. Press seams in.

Stitch the 5" x 58.5" strips (outer border strips) to the sides of the quilt. Press seams out.

Stitch the 5" x 63.5" strips (outer border strips) to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press seams out.

Quilt and bind as desired.
