Today is the day and I am very excited to sew with you!
It's finally time to start the Winter Wonderland Sew along and we are sewing the Sleigh Bell Sampler quilt! Click HERE to see the schedule of guest bloggers who are joining us.
You will need the Winter Wonderland book and your favorite Christmas fabric. Click here to download the fabric requirements. This is a great quilt to make scrappy. I used fabrics from Sweetwater, Kate Spain, Gina Martin and Basic Grey from Moda fabrics. The scrappier the better I think!
First up we are going to sew block one which is the tree block. Joining us is Tina from Emily Ann's Kloset. So be sure to hop on over to her blog and see her sewing progress on her tree block.
So lets begin! Turn to page 72 and cut out all the pieces needed for the tree block.
Following the instructions on page 72, sew up one flying geese unit.
Then stitch two B squares to both sides of the flying geese unit. It's the tree top!!
Diagonally sew a C square to both sides of E rectangle. Make two of them.
Sew the two tree branch units together. Then sew the tree branch units together with two D units and press.
Now stitch two A units to both sides of one G unit to make the tree trunk unit.
Stitch all the units together and you have just finished block one!
Now let's move on to block two which is the Scotty Dog...love this little doggie! Joining us for block two is the Quilting Gallery so be sure hop on over there and see their Scotty Dog block.
Turn in your book to page 73 and cut out all the pieces needed for the Scotty dog.
Following the instructions on page 73, stitch together J, A and F units to make a doggie tail/bowtie unit.
Stitch two I units together with one C unit to form doggie legs.
Stitch the bow tie/tail unit together with G unit and leg's unit.
Using E and H units, make an ear unit.
Then using D and J unit, make the Partial Top Right Scotty unit.
Stitch these units together.
Stitch two E and one H units together to make a flying geese/partial mouth unit.
Stitch F unit to Partial Mouth unit.
Stitch Partial Mouth unit together with Ears unit and B unit.
Stitch both units together to form Scotty Dog block.
And now we are done with block one and two. Join me next week for two more blocks!
