A new Christmas quilt......

This year, for the first time in a few years, we are having Christmas at home.  I thought I would celebrate the occasion by making a new Christmas quilt to hang.  Just at the very moment I was thinking about which quilt I should make, I read a blogpost by one of my favourite designers, Gail Pan, about a blog hop she was going to be part of.  It is called 'Winter Wandering Blog Hop'. There is a free block design being posted by four different designers for four weeks including Gail.  I just couldn't resist!



The first block is this cute little snowman.  He was designed by Ellie over at Ellie's Quiltplace and he is just adorable!  Of course, I immediately downloaded the pattern and got started on the block.  You can get the pattern and read Ellie's post about the blog hop here.  I am looking forward to the next block now!

  12. This is so cute! I'm also working on a Christmas project, although it's in a completely different style (paper-piecing involved...)! I think this block might be a little bigger, but it would look wonderful as a Christmas postcard ;-) Have a nice weekend! Ariadna.
