December Scrap-bee-licious blocks finished

This month’s theme of anything Christmas, was very appropriately chosen by  Nicole @ Modern Handcraft. It also allowed me to use my scraps from the Christmas Stocking, use fabrics I have purchased but not used, and finally try out two block patterns I have on my pinterest site.

Block 1: Christmas Tree Block was inspired by this one by Katie’s Korner.


Block 2: Christmas Gift Tags is one of my favorite blocks I have made so far. I used the idea in this flickr image from Ayumi Takahashi. Aren’t they fantastic. I couldn’t find a pattern so I created a paper piecing pattern, where each of the blocks are 6 x 6 inches (finished so this block below is 12 x 12).

If you would like the directions or the paper piecing of either of the two blocks,  let me know and I can share how I made these. ChristmasSrapbeeliciousBlocks

Linking up for Kristy’s Paper Piecing Party.

Hope everyone has a great New Year. See you tomorrow for Book Review Tuesday.

    Once again, you’ve come up with a really cute block. yes, I would like instructions for it please?
    I know they take a lot of time to develop the patterns, I mean, so I really appreciate the time it takes.

      I know, how cool are they. So sweet, a little time consuming though due to the smaller pieces. They landed up wonderfully though (at least I love them :-))

    Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. You are a quilting genius. I’m obsessed with those tags. Too bad the blocks I’m making tomorrow are very simple compared to those beauties. Love them!!!

      Aw, Shucks. You are so sweet. Your blocks will be fine, simple sometimes can be the best… Look at modern quilts with all the use of negative space 🙂

      Happy New Year Ashley 🙂

      Thanks Amy. Let me reach out Ayumi. I want to make sure she is ok with handing it out as it was drawn based on her flickr post. I will post it here next week if it is 🙂

    I thought, “oh I really like that Christmas tree!” and then HOLY COW the gift tags. Michelle! You’re nuts, in the best way. That gift tag block is my favorite from our group this month. (Sssshhh don’t tell. 🙂 )

      The gift tag is definitely one of my favorite blocks too. I am hoping to post the pattern next week :-)….some day I might get you to like paper piecing 😉
