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.
Linking up for Kristy’s Paper Piecing Party.
Hope everyone has a great New Year. See you tomorrow for Book Review Tuesday.
