December Bite Size Block


“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year… La la la la la” wish I knew all the words to the song. But isn’t it wonderful? I love love love Christmas time. We’ve even had thick frost the past few days that made it look like a winter wonderland here in sunny Livermore. And you MUST stop by In Between Stitches. The new window displays by Leslie Emery are a frosty sight to see. Just beautiful! The window on the left features the small version of our new pattern, the Double Arrow by Material Girlfriends.

This is my last free block download for the I Love Us Year Round pattern! Wow, the year just flew by. The December block is shown at the top of this blog and you can download the instructions here ILoveUsYearRound.all pages36-38. You can now download all the blocks, from the January blog to now, to make the outside portion of the I Love Us Year Round quilt. If you should want the interior pattern as well as a hard copy of the January through December blocks, you can pick up this beautiful 40+ color pages pattern from In Between Stitches by clicking here.

We get to enjoy a little piecing in making the Half Square Triangles, a little paper piecing in making the pleated Christmas tree and a little appliqué for the colorful light bulbs. I will be teaching this block at my next Bite Size class, Sunday, December 13, at 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Join me for some quilting merriment and we can all sing, hum and la-la-la to “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” as we sew up the December block.

Now that song is going to stick in your head all day. LOL!
