Snowflake Quilt Pattern

The Snowflake Quilt Pattern is now available at Sewfinity!

Snowflake Quilt by Modern Handcraft - 

Why We Like It

Designed by Nicole of Modern Handcraft, the Snowflake Quilt is minimal and wintry. It's a modern design, with an offset large-scale snowflake. It's perfect for those wanting a non-traditional quilt to throw on the couch for some wintertime cuddling.

The variations in background design give you lots of customization options. Make the background one single color, four colors in horizontal stripes, scrappy, or make your own background design with the aid of the coloring page.

It comes together quickly: simple shapes and 2-at-a-time half-square triangle piecing make it pretty simple.

    Tips + Tutorials

    • The pattern features instructions with diagrams throughout and links for a coloring page, cutting diagrams, and cutting tags to make the sewing process easier. Don't miss printing those out!
    • Sew Along: Nicole's Snowflake Sew Along 2, an 8-week sewalong Sep 7 - Oct 26, 2020. Sewfinity is a sponsor!

    Match-making our Kona Cotton Solids to the Snowflake quilt pattern was really fun and it was so inspiring to see so many color palettes come to life. Enjoy these digital mockups!

      I am so sorry I missed the last quilt along. Thank you so much for these color options. This will make planing for my next snowflake quilt easy as I already see a couple of versions I want to try.

      So much wonderful eye candy? How do you pick just one?!


      Hi Gudrun, and thanks! I recommend Kona White, which is a bright white that’s displayed in all the mockups in this post. Kona Snow is another good option if you want a creamier white.

      Great inspiration, thank you! Which Kona white do you recommend? Love the tetrad options, reminds me of my color class in school 😀
