ONE MORE THING...

Before we get into the instructions for today's block...

For those of you who have been quilting along and don't want the fun to end or who want more Christmas quilt blocks to add to their quilt, I wanted to let you know about this new Christmas quilt along that begins soon.

I was reading about the "I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along" over on Yvonne's Quilting Jetgirl blog. This is perfect for those who have been taking part in the Have a Jolly Little Christmas QAL, which is soon coming to an end. The block designs are all 12" so you can mix and match!

Step 1: Sew the White and Dark Brown (B) squares together. Add the White (C) rectangles and then the Dark Brown (C) rectangles.





Step 2: Use the STOP method to add the White (E) squares on the corners of the Dark Brown (G) rectangles.







Step 3: Sew the White and Dark Brown (B) squares together. Use the STOP method to add the Light Brown (B) squares to the Dark Brown (E) squares. Sew the (BB) units to the top of the (EB) units.




Step 4: Use the STOP method to add the Light Brown (F) rectangles on the ends of the White (D) rectangles. Use the STOP method to add the White (B) squares on the corners of the Light Brown (E) squares. Sew the Light Brown and Black (A) squares together. Sew the Light Brown (F) rectangles on top of the (AA) units.



Step 5:  Sew the Light Brown and Black (**) rectangles on the sides of the Light Brown (B) square. Trim this unit to 0.75” wide to make the nostrils. Use the STOP method to add the White (A) squares on the corners of the Light Brown (H) rectangle. Sew the (**B**) unit on top.






Step 6: Sew the White (J) rectangles and (E) and (K) squares to the units. Arrange and sew the units together to complete the sides of the block.






Step 7: Sew the Red (***) strips onto the sides of the Green and White (Z) rectangles. Also use the STOP method to add the White (A) squares to the Green (B) squares.

To make the left side of the Mistletoe, use the STOP method to add the White (F) rectangle on the top of the Green/Red (Z***), then add the Green (F), then add the White (B). Use the STOP method to add the White (F) to the bottom, then add the Green/White (AB) square, and a White (A) square.

To make the right side of the Mistletoe, use the STOP method to add the Green (B) square on the top of the White/Red (Z***), then add the White (*). Use the STOP method to add the Green (F) to the bottom, then add the Green (F), then add the Green/Red (Z***), then add the Green/White (AB) square, and a White (A) square. Sew the left and right sides together.






Step 8: Sew the White (E) square and Light Brown (M) rectangle to the remaining units. Arrange and sew the units together to complete the block. Block should measure 12.5” square.
