I have been busy creating a couple more foundation paper pieced (FPP) patterns lately! Last week I released this cute little Christmas Kitty FPP pattern. The Christmas Kitty pattern includes a 6″ x 6″ and 12″ x 12″ pattern sizes in the PDF download.
As a little girl, it was always a dream of mine to wake up and find a snuggly kitten under the Christmas tree, so I had to capture that in a quilt block. 🙂
The second Christmas FPP pattern I’ve been working on is this fun Candy Cane Heart quilt block. The Candy Cane Heart finishes at 12″ x 12″ and would be darling made into a pillow cover, table runner, or as a block in a Christmas quilt!
I love adding aqua in as a non-traditional Christmas color, so I just had to make the background out of this aqua Cotton and Steel Basics XOXO print. Now just to decide how I want to finish off this cute block. 🙂
I’ve been having so much fun making 6″ and 12″ blocks this December, I might just save them all up for an epic Christmas sampler quilt! Wouldn’t that be so cool?!?
Looks like I have quite a bit more sewing to do for a sampler quilt, though. 🙂
You can find the Candy Cane Heart, Christmas Kitty, and Geometric Christmas Tree patterns in my Craftsy or Etsy shops. The Peppermint Twist block (shown above) is a free 6″ x 6″ block tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop blog HERE and you can also find the 12″ x 12″ cutting instructions on my blog post HERE.
