In Our Garden Block of the Month - December!
Wow! I can't believe it is already December and my turn to share some fun blocks with you for the In Our Garden Block of the Month organized and hosted by the ever so talented Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy!!!
First however, I would like to say a great big THANK YOU to Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy for hosting and organizing our Block of the Month! Amy has done a fantastic job not only organizing this BOM but the all the behind the scenes help and support!! You have really done a wonderful job AMY! Thank you! Woohoo!
This year we have moved through the seasons with our blocks, so I wanted to continue with that theme for December! My sponsor was Henry Glass. I am using "Sunday Best" fabrics by Kim Diehl.
Thank you Henry Glass for these beautiful fabrics!
Both of these blocks were really fun to create I am a big fan of Sun Bonnet Sue! In my "Sun Bonnet Sue and Friends" block, Sue is getting loads of help from a little Bunny offering up his last carrot for Frosty's nose. And the pretty little Dove is bringing Sue another twig for Frosty's arm! This block is really fun to create. I used tiny buttons, 3/8" ribbon for the Scarf and embroidery for the eyes,mouth and twigs to embellish Frosty! The pattern also has the Scarf for needleturn applique if you prefer applique.
I always think of a Winter Star shining bright in the night sky in December. My "Winter Star" block has a fun little twist with the striped star points!
You could also add in a third color for a fun variation of this block!
Both patterns are available for Free download for the month of December here and here! I can't wait to see your blocks!
