Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along: Snowballs Quilt




I had the pleasure of quilting along Fat Quarter Shop in their Snowballs Quilt Along.  The quilt pattern is called Snowballs Quilt.

For my fabric in this quilt, I chose Chicken Scratch by Kaye England.  This fabric is so beautiful and I am so happy I chose it!  I almost always choose white or off-white for my quilt backgrounds but this time I decided to use Mustard (Bella Solids 9900 213 to be exact).  This mustard is just perfect and I so love the way it looks as the background in this quilt!



I had a lot of fun making this quilt!  And, I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out.

Quilt Pattern: Kaleidoscope Quilt


I'm so excited to share a new quilt pattern with you today!



A few months ago, I was inspired by Painted Garden by Crystal Manning for Moda Fabrics.  The line was just coming out and as soon as I saw it, I knew I needed to create a quilt pattern with it.  I sat  down and started working on ideas that were floating around in my head and I came up with an amazing quilt pattern.





I so proud to share it with you!  You can buy this pattern here.

I worked hard to make this pattern easy to follow.  I walk you through block construction with step-by-step photos.  It works up quickly because it is composed of 16 large blocks.  I really think you'll enjoy making it!



I'd love to see your versions of this pattern!  Tag me on Instagram @skeinandhook and use the hashtags- #skeinandhookpatterns, #kaleidoscopequilt, #skeinandhook



You can go to my Etsy shop to get a copy of the pattern!  I can't wait to see what you make with this pattern!  Enjoy!
