|The Nordic Mini QAL|
A Nordic Mini Quilt Along!!
I was hooked as soon as I saw these cute little snowflake blocks, and ran to find some red and white fabric.
It is a mini quilt, that will meaure 14 1/2 inches square, and will have 4 rows.
I had such fun making the Half Squre Triangles for these little blocks. There are a few reasons for this...
- I love that they are going to be 4 3/4 inch square blocks
- I have been testing some adorable quilt patterns, using many HST, and have gotten much better making those HST ( Elaine, Summercrafter is designing up cuteness!)
- I used the tiny LocBloc ruler, that make trimming HSTs so easy and accurate. ( I splurged awhile back and got a set ranging from 1 1/2 in to 6 1/2 in. I LOVE THEM!)

Julie's tutorial is excellent, and before I knew it, I had one block finished. I had to take my time pressing the seams open, but it was well worth the extra step. I did not use steam!
