Snowy Peaks is one of the setting options in the 2020 Countdown to Christmas - Winter Frost. For more info about this quilt-along, check out the Frequently Asked Questions and join our Moda Bake Shop Bakers group. Find all the blocks {here}.


Chef's Notes:

This layout uses [12] 12 inch blocks and [18] 6 inch blocks. It also has visions of the snow topped mountains off in the distance as a top and bottom border. I would rate this setting a medium, due to the quarter square triangles. (QST) which form the snow topped mountains.

YIELD

1 yard – Icy blue for sashing
1 yard – dark blue for QSTs and border

[2] 66.5” x 2.5” strips for the left and right sides of the quilt top
[2] 58.5” x 2.5” strips for the top and bottom of the quilt top

For the Snowy Peaks (QSTs), From the white fabric cut [1] 5.75” Width of fabric (WOF) strip

STEP 1. MAKE QUARTER SQUARE TRIANGLES

Place the 5.75” white square on top of the 5.75” dark blue, right sides together. Sew ¼ inch on each side of the diagonal line. Cut in half on the drawn line. Press open. Place a 5.5” medium blue square on top of the half square triangle you just made in the steps above. Sew ¼ inch on each side of the diagonal line. Cut in half on the drawn line. Press open. Trim to 5”.

Repeat to make [24] 5” QSTs.

STEP 2. QUILT ASSEMBLY

Sew [12] QSTs into 2 rows, one for the top of the quilt and one for bottom of the quilt. Refer to the setting
illustration for the directions of the blocks. Sew 2 rows of [9] 6” blocks together into a row. Sew three rows of [4] 12 inch blocks with 2.5” x 12.5” Icy Blue sashing in between the blocks as shown in the illustration.

Finish the quilt top assembly by sewing the rows together with the horizontal sashing as shown in the
