Today is my turn to post for the Sew Seasonal Blog Hop organized by Kristy from Quiet Play and Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts. They each created several cute holiday block patterns (which are available free for the duration of the hop) and there are 25 of us - each showcasing one design for the hop.
This is the second of Kristy's patterns that I've used (you can see the first one here) and I've really enjoyed making both! For this hop, I made a little mini wall hanging using her candy cane paper pieced pattern.
This block was fast and easy to put together. I just added a wonky border and the little polar bear hexagon and then quilted it using what my daughter refers to as "freestyle" quilting. And finished it off with some super skinny binding!
You should definitely check out the rest of the stops on the Sew Seasonal Hop - here is the schedule:
13th November: Gemma from Pretty Bobbins
And now it is your turn! As I mentioned, Kristy and Alyce have made all 25 patterns available free during the blog hop. You can find them here and here. Just use one or more of the blocks and make a finished project - then join the link up at Kristy's blog starting November 30th. There is also a Flickr group. And there are fantastic prizes - all sorts of fabric goodness! For a complete list, click here.
