Ice Crystals Quilt Block Challenge

Welcome to the Ice Crystals Quilt Block Challenge! You will be creating the Ice Crystals quilt pattern, designed by the talented Toby Lischko of Gateway Quilts & Stuff. This quilt can be either paper pieced or pieced with templates. Each block includes the paper pieced images and templates. To make the templates, print out the template page and cut each individual template out around the outside lines. There are nine blocks starting with simple ones and progressively get harder. The quilt is pieced “onpoint” which means that the blocks are at a 45 degree angle and pieced with half-square and quartersquare triangles, which are called setting triangles. The finished quilt size is 58” x 58”. Find the fabric instructions and the patterns for each block below.
