Snowglobe Mini Quilt – Free Cut File and Pattern
This quilt block can be created with your cutting machine, or you can cut it by hand. This is one of my favorite interactive quilt blocks! If you want to use it in a quilt I recommend backing it with black fabric before adding batting. This will allow you to still see the snowglobe effect.
Tablecloth Vinyl (plastic)
Cricut Maker (or similar cutting machine)
SVG Cut File
Cutting Machine Instructions:
Download the cut file above. Use your Cricut Maker or similar cutting machine to cut all the pieces. Here are the settings and mats that I used with my Cricut Maker and Cricut Design Space.
- To cut the plastic vinyl I selected “cutting mat protector” as the material and used the strong grip mat.
- For the felt I selected “wool bonded felt,” chose the rotary cutter, and used the fabric mat.
- To cut the fabric and fusible interfacing I selected “bonded cotton” and used the fabric mat.
PDF Pattern Instructions
Print the PDF pattern, linked above.
Trace the tree and snowglobe base onto your felt.
Trace the large circle onto your plastic/vinyl.
Cut out your pieces.
Cut a fabric square that measures 11.5″. Center the small circle on this square. Cut the circle out.
Mini Quilt Instructions:
Place your two vinyl circles together. Sew around 3/4 of the edge using your rolling foot. Then use a funnel to insert a small amount of faux snow and glitter. Place your Christmas tree inside the opening. Clip the opening closed being sure to clip the tree as well.
Sew the opening closed. Be sure to backstitch at the start and finish to make sure the glitter and snow won’t leak out.
Place the snow globe between the two fabric pieces and top-stitch around the circle on the fabric as closely as you can to the edge. Top-Stitch the bottom of the snow globe into place.
You can quilt around the remaining fabric if you choose. Finish by binding the edge using your preferred method. I used a ribbon. Make a tab to hang the mini quilt by attaching another piece of ribbon, this would make a great door hanging. Or you could add a sleeve in the back to hang this as a sort of flag.
