Our newest release, Snowberry Runners is a playful pattern that is fun to make! Using 2 colors or your scraps, I think you will find this versatile pattern has many uses!
This pattern features freezer paper piecing. I chose it so that you get repeatable and accurate results with skinny strips. The applique is optional; you can add it or not - I like the berries!
We recommend printable freezer paper for this project. I like C&T's version for this - you will use 1-2 sheets for this project and have enough for other projects! Use this in your inkjet printer - so fast and easy.

As you can see, there are 2 versions, but really, there are endless versions! Here's my scrappy Kaffe-y version:
Here Is what I played with before putting the above together - just snowflake sections, no berries. I like this too!

And the resulting pillow; I will be sharing a flanged pillow for quilt blocks soon.
