Welcome to Christmas Corner: A place to share Christmas Sewing on the 25th of each month.
Here are the Little Joys Blocks I've been sewing, a free Quilt Along from the Jolly Jabber blog.
|You can find all the block tutorials here. Actually this is not the Little Joys wreath block. See more info. in the next caption.|
|A closer look at the blocks:|
1."Trim the Tree" block
2. The present block is called the "Season of Giving" block.
3. The wreath (from a quilt along in 2011-- also from the Jolly Jabber) is called Holiday Homecoming and here's the link.
Because the wreath block pattern is for a 10" instead of 10 1/2" I adjusted the cutting instructions so the block would go with the others, and took a picture to share and for future reference.
My other Christmas Quilt Along is the Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along (NSLMCQA).
| Here is the Angel block. The NSLMQA is hosted A Quilting Chick, but I'm not sure anyone is still participating since I haven't seen any activity lately. But maybe with Christmas in July kicking off some holiday sewing, it'll catch on again.|
|I altered my angel by making her hair and gown longer and adding a halo. She'll get an embroider face later, I think.|
And here are the cutest decorated gifts bags for presenting treasured gifts embellished with some fabric and wonder under!
My friend Donna has a tutorial over at her blog, Two Chicks and a Mom. Here's the link to the tutorial.
Isn't it clever that she ironed on fabric, added buttons, and some little marking pen accents?
|I'm going to make some of these soon!|
Thanks for stopping by Christmas Corner!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts. Be sure to stop over and see Amanda's Oh My Stars quilt-- it's wonderful!
