FREEE Paper Pieced Christmas Blocks

Hello!  It’s Cindy bragging about Sandy designing the cutest paper pieced Christmas block patterns.  2 trees black backgroundSince Sandy designed 4 very adorable blocks, we’re hosting a PAPER PIECING SEW ALONG.  You can make a Christmas banner, a table runner or a mini wall hanging.  We think either one is guaranteed to make your 2020 holidays brighter!

The first block is a rustic evergreen tree.  For printing these patterns, we suggest using thin copy paper or a special paper made for paper piecing from your favorite quilting store.

Since I am a novice at paper piecing, I used colored pencils to color code the rustic tree block pattern.  This helped me to keep track of the fabrics I was using for each section.  Who said you have to color within the lines?  Not me! Colored pencils tip Here’s a close up of my first tree.  I had fun picking out these fabrics!     Green treeDo you need a paper piecing tutorial?  Here’s a link to a great tutorial by Crafty Gemini.  Sandy and I both learned our paper piecing skills from Vanessa.

    Hi Ladies! Thanks for the c.u.t.e PP Christmas tree. I just picked up a whole REAM of newsprint, which I’ve been told is fabulous for PP. I just might give this a try. At the very least, I’m going to PIN it for later. ~smile~ Roseanne

      Ohhh, what a great idea to use newsprint Roseanne! Thanks for this tip! Glad you like the block! Since I am a novice at paper piecing by machine, I am glad Sandy designed these blocks to go together quickly.
