Kristy (QP) and Alyce (BHQ) currently have these patterns available for FREE on Craftsy – but you must be quick as this special ends very soon. Click HERE for the Sew Seasonal paper pieced pattern and HERE for the Ornamental pattern.
Now for my block. I was assigned Block # 4 from Alyce’s (BHQ) beautiful Ornamental quilt pattern.
Me, being me, I decided to change it up a bit.
I used prints rather than solid fabric. And I used stitched central panels rather than print fabrics.
I stitched these festive little blocks well over a year ago and recently rediscovered them. Don’t you love finding things you forgot you had?
I measured and found they’d be perfect to complete the 10” finished blocks.
This was the moment I decided that rather than use white solid fabric for the outer border, I’d use this white print with red squiggles.
Once my blocks were complete, I played around with the layouts.

As the wall hanging isn’t quite finished, come back in a day or two and I’ll show you the final product… and the layout which I used.
