I have been having fun with this sweet little Christmas angel. I’ve used it in a table runner, but I would like to do a small pillow for a gift card. I will use the angel for the front of the pillow. On the back of my 7 1/2″ square pillow I plan to put a little pocket to use for a gift card or cash. Then later, if this pillow is going to a child, the tooth fairy can also put a “stash” into the pocket.
Here’s a sample of the table runner. And below is a close-up of the “wand” in the angel’s hand. Just stitch a line with embroidery floss for the stem and sew a little star shaped button to the end. Her halo is stitched with metallic gold embroidery floss.
This adorable quilt was made from all of the animal blocks in my Cute and Clever Totes book. It was made as a sample for the Going To Pieces quilt shop in Appleton, WI. I love the way they took my “tote” book blocks and used them in a totally different pattern. This is so creative…great job!
There are so many fun blocks in my book. The Cat is one of my favorites.
It’s time to announce the winners for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Block Tour. The winner of my “Must Be Santa” pattern is Beth T. The winner of the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks magazine is Margaret Andrews.
Thanks for all of the lovely comments. Because of the volume of comments, I was not able to respond. However, I enjoyed each and every one of them!
Make sure to visit my blog next week to enter all the great give-aways for the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Blog Tour. I will be featured on Tuesday, Nov. 14. Besides getting a preview of the block I entered in the magazine, I will show you 3 more of Santa’s “pals”. All 4 of them look fabulous together in a table runner or quilt.
These friends from Wisconsin Rapids attended my Paper Piecing Workshop last Saturday. As you can see from their lovely smiles, we had so much fun! Attendees ranged from beginners to novice, but all enjoyed creating adorable Christmas blocks from my latest book, “Sew Yourself A Merry Little Christmas“.
We also put together the “Gift Sack” pattern, using one of the blocks we had just created.
This is a small tote to be used for gifts or decorating.
Aren’t these Halloween Trick or Treat Sacks too cute? These were made by my customer, Marilyn. She used an assortment of my Halloween block patterns and the same Gift Sackpattern from my Christmas bookHere’s a close-up of two of the totes. Adorable!
Thanks to all my new friends in Wisconsin Rapids for hosting my workshop.

Cute as can be and just in time for Christmas, this table runner sports “3 Dogs and 1 Sassy Cat“. Animal lovers will enjoy this sweet holiday project. It’s easy to make, and the borders resemble a “scallop”, but is pieced. So easy!
Stocking Hat Dog
Candy Cane Dog
Turtleneck Dog (hint* If you are new to paper piecing, start with this dog)
And the Sassy Cat!
Here’s a close-up of the scalloped border.
I love this border so much, I am using it in my next table runner design…tune in next time 🙂
“3 Dogs and 1 Sassy Cat” pattern is available on Etsy and Craftsy.
Potholder directions are not included in this download, just the paper pieced block patterns.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my fun Halloween creations. Attached is a photo of a table runner made from 3 of my Halloween block patterns. Thank you, Wanda, for sharing your cute table runner. And here’s an adorable table topper by Shelley, using all of my Halloween blocks.
Shelley used my Christmas Tree Skirt pattern to assemble this table topper so she could use 8 different Halloween blocks. Didn’t she do an awesome job?!?!
I love seeing my friends’ creations using my patterns. Please share by sending me photos at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
