August 2013 Block

Sorry to be a day late with this. Yesterday was a busy day. So without further ado, here is my block made with fabrics purchased for the quilt. 
 This is the scrappy one.

I hope you enjoy making this block. If you have been making these blocks, I would love to see them. Email a link or a picture of your work. My email address is in my profile.

Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop

First of all many thanks to Madame Samm and Carol for all their time and effort in organizing this blog hop. 
Today is my day, so lets get right to it. I found this little hanger(on sale, of course) about a year ago and have wanted to make something to go with it ever since. The hanger is so fancy I felt that the wall hanging should be equally ornate, so I borrowed this block from my 2012 BOM(still available in the tabs) and reduced the block to eight inches finished. Then I designed from there. Here is the finished product.
 I added the fancy tassel because it reminded me a bit of an old fashioned bell pull.
I love to design and make Christmas items so I thought I would share some of my designs from the past.
 The pattern for the tree skirt above is available in the Free Patterns tab.




 The tree skirt below is the only pattern I have ever published for sale.

 The next three tree skirts are basically the same pattern with minor changes, mostly in size.


 I designed this tree skirt for my sister who loves Mary Engelbreit and likes things a little funky.
