An Icy Path

A silver, gray, blue, and navy wall hanging evokes images of ice crystals hanging from eaves on a cold winter’s night. Fabrics enhanced with glitter make the quilt sparkle even more. Fabrics are from the Frost collection by Kanvas for Benartex.

Assemble Blocks

1. Sew together two assorted print 2-1⁄2×21" strips to make a strip set (Diagram 1). Press seam open. Using a rotary cutter, a ruler with a 45º mark, and a mat, trim end of strip set at a 45º angle. Cutting parallel to the just-cut edge, cut strip set into four 2-1⁄2"-wide diamond pairs.

2. Referring to Diagram 2, layer two diamond pairs with right sides together. Pin, inserting pins into 1⁄4" seams and being careful to intersect seam lines. A small amount of fabric will extend at each end. Slowly sew together pairs, removing each pin just before you reach it. Press seam in one direction to make a diamond unit. Repeat to make a second matching diamond unit.

3. Add a navy print small triangle to one edge of diamond unit (Diagram 3). Add a navy print large triangle to adjacent edge to make block half (Diagram 4). Press all seams toward navy print.

4. Repeat Step 3 to make a mirror-image block half (Diagram 5).

5. Sew together a block half and a mirror-image block half to make a block (Diagram 6). Press seam open. The block should be 10-1⁄8" square including seam allowances.

6. Repeat steps 1–5 to make 12 blocks total.
