This week, I am desperately trying to catch up on some of my outstanding blocks from last month. The first ones to concentrate on….the scrap-bee-licious block. Liz over @ beadqueene asked for a couple of star value blocks.
They look great but boy are they small pieces and a lot of them. I didn’t think it would take this long but good news the first one is almost done…..I am sure the next one will be quicker. I hope to have these sent before I head to Nashville this weekend (TWO SLEEPS TO GO!!).
More details can be found in her post with the tutorial. Linking up with Lee over @ Freshly pieced for WiP Wednesday (see button on the right).
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 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.
