Today, I’m so excited to bring you the Santa Block from our ’12 Days of Christmas’ Sampler Quilt Series! This block combines piecing and applique. I made my block with solids, but I can just imagine how awesome it would look with some well-executed prints!
I’m assembling my blocks in the ‘Quilt-As-You-Go’ method. I used this method (with some slight modifications because I am using sashing on my quilt, in addition to one continuous piece of backing). Since I love the look of long arm quilting but want to do it myself on my home machine, this works best for me. Let me know if you have any questions about this block, or about how I quilted it!
Please stop by the ’12 Days of Christmas’ Sampler Quilt Along Flickr Group to post your completed blocks, or any questions you might have along the way!
3e. Take the 2 Button pieces. Glue them down, 1 above the Belt and 1 below the Belt. Sew down using a zig-zag stitch.
And you’re finished! Congratulations! Please visit the instructions for the other blocks in the ’12 Days of Christmas Quilt Sampler’!!
