Day 27 of Block a Day December

I was back to making my scrappy Christmas blocks today since I still have my Christmas box of fabric out. I found a fabric that has cute elves for fussy cutting so decided to make one of these ornament blocks by Heather of The Sewing Loft

And then I made one of my standard ones. This was a free pattern by The Fat Quarter Shop a few years ago but is no longer on their site. I have been asked if I can share the pattern but I am loathe to do that without their permission. I re-drew it from one of the samples I had made, making my blocks 6" finished size.
Here are today's two blocks together. I was so organised that I could get an outdoors photo today but the sun was a bit glary sorry - it's either night-time gloom or outside glare!!

Wow, just four more days to go and I will have done it!!

'til next time, 
happy stitches,


  1. Very pretty blocks, you're making great ornaments for next year, happy stitching!

  2. More cute blocks. I’m looking forward to seeing what you create with them.

  3. You are doing so well with your block a day! It will be nice to see them all together at the grand finale.

  4. Well done on making a block a day! The blocks are beautiful.

  5. Gorgeous! I have been enjoying seeing all your lovely work xx
