I’ve been itching to design a new paper piece pattern. I decided to work away at my selection of Christmas designs. Last year I made the Reindeer and the Stocking. Prior to that, I had made the Vintage Skier and the Ice Skate. I hope to include all the blocks in a Christmas quilt that I will make in a few years, certainly not this year. If you’d like to quilt along with me, I promise, you will be able to keep up my pace of 2-3 blocks a year!
Thanks to my Flickr friend Synnoeve from Norway I had this fabulous Christmas text print to use for the body of the dove. The background fabric is a BasicGrey grunge in navy.
You can find this pattern in my Craftsy shop as well as my Etsy shop. I think that this is my first holiday project. I am guessing that there will be at least a couple more even though I don’t have any planned. I can’t help myself when it comes to sewing Christmas things.
