Hello! It’s Cindy bragging about Sandy designing the cutest paper pieced Christmas block patterns. Since 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! Here’s a close up of my first tree. I had fun picking out these fabrics! Do 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.
