From Santa Paper Pieced Block

I found some time to work on another pattern for my slowly growing collection of winter/Christmas paper pieced patterns. I so look forward to making this quilt one year (not this year!). This block is called “From Santa” and features BasicGrey’s Aspen Frost collection which is available at the Fat Quarter Shop.

I chose to stamp “From Santa” on the tag but it could be personalized in so many ways. You could put your loved one’s name on the tag, for instance. You could choose to embroider or print your fabric instead of stamping. By changing up your fabric choices, you could make a birthday present. It’s a lot of fun.

Because I didn’t want all my blocks in my finished quilt to be the same size, I decided to make this block 12″ finished.

The pattern is now offered in my Etsy shop and Craftsy shops. The pattern pieces are included for the 12″ version like I made but also for a 10″ version to match the last few blocks in the collection in case you would prefer to keep your blocks more or less the same size…but where is the challenge in that?
