Christmas Caroling Row Along: A Midnight Clear


Thank you for stopping by today! I am so excited to share with you my Christmas Caroling Row, as part of the Christmas Caroling Row Along hosted by the amazing Marian of Seams to be Sew!



After I share with you my row, I have some awesome giveaways that you won't want to miss!! So don't forget to keep scrolling!



A Midnight Clear

I designed my row from the Christmas Song, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear. A song I've always loved, and which also lended itself greatly to being able to design something that I love (and after living in flat North Dakota for 9 months now, I am also greatly missing...) mountains, forests and beautiful crisp winter skies!


Measures 12 inch x 36 inch
The entire row is foundation paper pieced.


If you have never paper pieced before, or even if you have, you can view my video tutorials for how I paper piece, how I use my cutting templates (which are a tremendous help - especially with a pattern of this size), and more tips on my YouTube channel HERE!


This pattern is packed full of instructions, diagrams, pattern templates, cutting templates (for easy fussy cutting, easier piecing, and minimal fabric waste!), and lots of coloring pages to help you plan your block just right before you cut into your precious fabrics!


Here is my row

I decided to make my block a little playful and added some villages to the mountains along with a little nature and animals. I've been having a lot of fun with fussy cutting lately, which is fun for adding images, as well as getting your lines and textures (like in the trees to line up)!


Northcott was so kind to send each of the designers some fabrics, and can I just tell you how nice they are to work with?!! I received the whitish print that I used for the snow, a similar green that I used in the trees, the medium blue in the sky, and a fun snowflake print that I'm going to put on the back when I quilt this!

Aren't these beautiful?!!



You can download the pattern in my shop, HERE.
OR get it on Craftsy HERE!
It will be FREE until Tues September 26th, so be sure to grab it now!

Seeing your perspective in colors is also enlightening simply because I wouldn't have thought to go that route with the fabrics but I really like the texture that the prints bring to the pattern.
