Introducing my newest Paper Piecing Book

Sew Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” is my new paper piecing book. This is a great book for beginners, but has plenty to keep the more advanced quilter happy, too.Paper Piece PatternsI have always loved decorating for Christmas, so creating the 16 adorable images for this book was such fun! Included in this book are 8 cute projects to use the interchangeable paper pieced blocks. In the next couple of posts, I will be sharing all 8 of these projects. Remember, you can substitute any of the images with the 16 Christmas blocks, or any of the many paper pieced blocks found on my Etsy and Craftsy stores.

I love to whip together some cute holiday gifts now, and set them aside for the holidays, when I am always looking for a small gift. This Reindeer has a tinsel pompon for the nose, which may be substituted for an appliqued circle of felt or wool. I like using a stripe for the binding.



I love the Elf. Finding the fabrics for him was fun. Using a brown stripe for his hair gave it more dimension. His nose is a 1/2″ tan pompon, but could be substituted with a button or appliqued circle of fabric, felt, or wool.

  1. I have both books and the dog & cat patterns on Craftsy, they’re so cute. Made 2 so far from your book Cute & Clever Totes. Wanting to get back into paper piecing.

    1. Hi Marti,
      Paper piecing is so addictive! After designing a block on paper, I can’t wait to try it in fabric. It always makes such a difference.

  2. I just purchased both your books from my local quilt shop and many of your other patterns on Etsy.

    Looking forward to many fun projects!

    1. Hi Jackie,
      Please send photos of your finished products. I will post them if you like 🙂

    1. Thanks Kathy! Some of the blocks are related to Christmas, but not all. Some could be used all winter, which makes them more functional.
