Frosty Friends Ice Cream Quilt Blocks: The Pattern Testers

I’m pretty sure I say it every time I release a pattern, but my absolute favourite part of the whole pattern writing process is seeing the pattern testers’ photos roll on in to my inbox! After having lived with my own colourings and visions of my patterns for so long, it’s just such a breath of fresh (and exciting!) air to see my patterns come to life in other people’s hands in their own colours and fabrics and styles.

And the ice cream quilt blocks and projects that have come in from the testers of the Frosty Friends pattern is no exception! The fun prints, the variety of finished products from mini quilts to mug rugs to pin cushions… ahhh, I’m so thankful for my fabulous testers.

Ice cream quilt blocks

Honest truth – everytime I see a new Frosty Friends quilt block, I just have to decide on what flavour it must be!

Purple ice cream quilt block

Purple Creamy block by Simone – @salty.plum – I vote mixed berry!

Blue ice cream quilt block

Blue Icy block by Anny – @ashombu – I reckon this one is bubblegum

Orange ice cream quilt block

Orange Yummy block by Jaime – @jmzblond – I’m gonna say blood orange *drool*

Purple and pink ice cream quilt block

Purple Swirly block by Josephine – @josephinek74 – Definitely a boysenberry.

Ice cream pin cushion

Oh yes, turns out that the Frosty Friends quilt blocks are the perfect size to use for the Carry-All pin cushion from Handmade Style by Anna Graham! Beth – @bethcurtis62 – made her Scoopy block (strawberry, I say) in to this fabulous pin cushion.

Ice cream mini quilts

Whether they’re placemats (like included in the pattern, or adjusted in size), mug rugs, or mini quilts, Frosty Friends quilt blocks are perfect to add a pop of fun colour!

Ice cream mug rug

Creamy mug rug by Sondra – @SondraQuilts – I’m going with raspberry

Quilted ice cream place mats

A set of 4 placemats (Dippy, Icy, Creamy, Swirly) by Pippa – @pippaspatch – strawberry, mint, bubblegum annnnnd… honey berry?!

Two Icy placemats by Paula – @mudpiesandpins – Clearly tropical and mixed berries, for sure

Ice cream placemat

Dippy placemat by Teresa – @aureaskitchen – Strawberry mint, duh!

All of the ice cream quilt blocks by Jodie – @jodiescraftroom – Blackberry, mint, raspberry + choc, orange, mango, and lemonade (AKA Sprite)

Ice cream mini quilt

Mini quilt (Scoopy, Swirly, Dippy, Scoopy) by Janet – @aggymom78 – Hmm, raspberry, honeycomb mint, honey, and matcha

What’s you favourite ice cream flavours? My all-time favourite is apple pie gelato, but I do love everything berry (except strawberry… unless it’s¬†real strawberry, and not fluro pink flavouring ūüėČ yuck!), especially if there’s swirls of white choc in it too. Scoop yp

From cream tone-on-tone, cut:

  • 7--6-1⁄2" squares
  • 16--2-7⁄8" squares
  • 32--2-1⁄2" squares

Make Shoo Fly Blocks

1.    Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each cream tone-on-tone 2-7⁄8" square.

2.    For one Shoo Fly block, gather two marked cream tone-on-tone 2-7⁄8" squares, four cream tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" squares, and a set of three squares from one assorted print (two 2-7⁄8" squares and one 2-1⁄2" square).

3.    Layer a marked cream tone-on-tone square atop an assorted print 2-7⁄8" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1⁄4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 1). Cut pair apart on drawn line and press open to make two triangle-squares. Each should be 2-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four triangle-squares total.

4.    Referring to Diagram 2, lay out triangle-squares, assorted print 2-1⁄2" square, and cream tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" squares in three rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Join rows to make a Shoo Fly block. The block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

5.    Repeat steps 2–4 to make eight Shoo Fly blocks total.

Assemble Snowball Blocks

1.    Mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each tan tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" square.

2.    Align a marked square with each corner of a cream tone-on-tone 6-1⁄2" square (Diagram 3; note direction of marked lines). Sew on drawn lines. Trim excess fabric, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowances. Press open attached triangles to make a Snowball block. The block should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

3.    Repeat Step 2 to make seven Snowball blocks total.

Assemble Quilt Top

1.    Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, alternate Shoo Fly and Snowball blocks in five horizontal rows.

2.    Sew together blocks in each row. Press seams toward Snowball blocks. Join rows to make quilt center; press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 18-1⁄2×30-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

3.    Sew multicolor print 1-1⁄2×30-1⁄2" inner border strips to long edges of quilt center. Add multicolor print 1-1⁄2×20-1⁄2" inner border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward inner border.

4.    Sew polka dot print 3-1⁄2×32-1⁄2" outer border strips to long edges of quilt center. Add polka dot print 3-1⁄2×26-1⁄2" outer border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward outer border.

Finish Quilt

1.    Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.

2.    Quilt as desired. Snowball blocks are a natural place to show off a quilting design, such as the computerized Celtic knot that Handi Quilter Studio Educator Kerri Rawlins centered in each one (Quilting Diagram). A windmill design formed from multiple kite shapes in each Shoo Fly block makes an appealing counterpoint to the block seams.


3.    Bind with solid tan binding strips.

To Assemble Your Quilt:

#1. ¬†Sew together 2 of your selvage edge to selvage edge 2.5″ wide strips (with right sides together using a quarter inch seam allowance).

#2.  Place this strip with right sides together on top of the left hand side of Row #1.  Pin and stitch together using a quarter inch seam allowance.  Open and press away from the sashing.  ***Note:  Your strip should have been a few inches longer than your quilt row.  So after you iron simply trim him down even with your quilt row and you are good to go!***

#3.  Sew together 2 more of your selvage edge to selvage edge strips and then repeat the process from Step #2 on Row #2 of your quilt.  Continue this through Rows 3-5.

#5.  When you reach Row #5 you will stitch a sashing strip on both the left and the right hand sides of this row.

#6.  Now that each row has sashing attached all we have left to do is stitch the rows together!.  Do this by placing Row #1 on top of Row #2 with right sides together.  Pin and sitich together using a quarter inch seam allowance.  Open and press to away from the sashing.

#7.  Next place Row #3 on top of Row #2 with right sides together.  Pin.  Stitch together using a quarter inch seam allowance.  Open and press away from the sashing.

All that is left to do is to create the backing of your choice and decide if you are going to machine quilt it, tie it, send it to a long arm quilter, or quilt it by hand.

Once your layers (the top, batting, and backing) have all been bound together by the options listed above it’s time for binding (which you’ve already cut in the cutting instructions above)!

Loosely inspired by the tradition of French Matelassage, this handmade throw offers beauty and comfort across any season. Made of imported linen with an interior layer of cotton batting, it is a perfect lightweight blanket for spring or fall, and a great layering piece for winter. With each washing, the fabric becomes softer and the intricacies of the pattern work and texture more apparent.
