Festive Mug Rug Swap

For a bit of fun, I decided I would join two swaps over December. The first is the Festive Mug Rug Swap. I knew straight away that I wanted to use my free gift tag paper piecing pattern (you can find it on the right-hand side menu).

I love making up this block. Next up some diagonal straight line quilting.

The other swap I am doing is Schnitzel and Boo’s Mini quilt swap. I have an idea for my partner but I am trying to decide on what color to go with…at least I have an idea right 🙂

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
