It's my stop today Think Christmas and I would like to give Lesley from The Cuddle Quilter and Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt a huge Thank You for all the hard work putting Think Christmas together.
I have three beauties to show in Red, Green and White.
|4" Tree Block by Bonnie K Browing|
First, is a tree block pattern designed by Bonnie K Browning from her book Paper Piecing Pattern on the American Quilt Society. The pattern is a 4" paper piece tree block. I added a white fabric with round medallion and quilted with my sewing machine first time. Then sew two borders and bind. Total block size is 12 1/2" and fits perfect on my table stand.
My second block is a bit larger. I first saw this pattern on Martingale . The pattern is called Christmas Cat Chats.
|Christmas Cat Chats 6" X 11"|
The finish block is 6 1/2" x 11". I added a decorative stitch for a collar and glitter button heart for the eyes. Finished size is 15" X 13". The pattern is simple to follow and great for beginners.
Next is a quilt that I started out with a 6 1/2" cut WOF until a yard later, I ended up with a 5" cut WOF. I do not know what happen or too many things going on at the same time or just Senior Moment!
|Flip and Sew Quilt 38" X 38"|
But, I finished with a smaller quilt than I started out with. I was told, this is a flip and sew pattern and is great for all those scraps sitting around. I did start to write a tutorial for the quilt, but it got too confusing. My applogies for that.
Those are my beauties for Think Christmas and do not forget to stop by the rest of the hop today.
