December's Block!


http://www.quiltdoodledesigns.com/BOM-2017.html
OMG.... it's December.... and it seems Christmas is right around the corner! Now... I have been agonizing over a dilemma the last couple months... While going over my notes and recapping the blocks that we have done so far, I realize that I have forgotten TWO blocks.... Since I am the captain of this ship, I have made the decision to extend this BOM into 2020 for the month of January and then start a new BOM project in February. I thought it would be unfair to spring two additional blocks on you with the holidays just around the corner! So with that, let's celebrate that the fun is extended one more month! Woot Woot! This month's block is an easy one. It is called Christmas Gift.

I used the cream background fabric, red and green Aunt Grace 1930's fabrics. Following the directions cut all of your block pieces out.
Draw a diagonal line corner to corner on 6 background 3 ½” squares. • With right sides together pair cream 3 ½” square and red 3 ½” square. Sew from corner to corner on drawn line. 


Trim away excess fabric. Press. This forms a triangle square. Make 6 total.



 Sew the green, red and white 3 ½” x 3 ½” squares to form a nine patch block.

Sew the block together.


~ Christmas Present ~


The monthly FREE pattern is available on my website. I have a special 2019 BOM section on my website. Each month the FREE pattern will be posted. But as soon as the new section or block is out the old block pattern will no longer be a freebie. But it will still be available for a small fee on my website or in my Etsy shop. If you want to share your finished blocks, feel free to post them on Facebook Group (Quilt Doodle Designs Garden Sunshine BOM 2019) and tag me or post them on Instagram tag Quilt Doodle Designs. I love to see everyone's progress as we stitch along together. 
As a reminder... if someone asks for the PDF or where it is on the Facebook group, please do not post the PDF directly onto the site. I appreciate you referring them to my website or to the blog. Thank you!

 Hope you are having a great day, remember November's block is no longer FREE. It can be found in my ETSY shop and also on the Quilt Doodle Website for a small fee. To get this month's block, head on over to Quilt Doodle Designs... remember this block is only available this month as a FREE PDF download. 

Happy Quilting!
Cindy and Belvedere

  1. I had arrangements with my longarmer to have this quilt top to her in December. I was wondering if I can get the two January blocks from you, please, so that I can maintain the arrangement. Thank you for considering.
