Hello, friends, and happy Thursday! It’s now week three in the fun Christmas sew along sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop. Today I’m sharing the Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt Block 3 which is a super fun block to make (and easy, too). You’ll also be making four blocks this week using the same pattern. It’s been fun to see the quilt start to come together. We’ll be making the final blocks next week.
Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt Block 3
I used two different green prints for this weeks block–one reads quite a bit darker than the other so I’ll have a good amount of contrast.
Week Three Block Tips
This week’s block is simple to make; however, there is one tool I used to really make the blocks go together quickly and accurately. If you have the Mini Simple Folded Corners tool, you’ll love how it simplifies the folded corners units in your blocks. No need to adjust any cutting measurements to use the tool. It saves time because you don’t need to draw lines and trim after you sew. Trimming takes place before sewing and increases your accuracy. Find the Mini Simple Folded Corners tool here and here.

I recently did a major clean up of my stash – wrapping yardage on comic boards, cutting scraps into usable sizes, and it was so worth all of the effort. Gave me additional space, everything is labeled, and it’s so nice to work in my sewing room now. I enjoy your posts and videos.
