Today is my stop on the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog tour!
My block is number 1108!
This is my first block in Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks and I was pretty excited when I got the news my block was selected :) I hope you like it as much as I do!
I used quilting cotton and wool for my applique design… and I couldn’t help but add some perle cotton embroidery stitching to make the little pods really pop!
If you haven’t tried these stitches before, no worries, the magazine includes all the embroidery stitching instructions too!
When I got the early release of the magazine a couple weeks ago and saw ALL the beautiful blocks I felt pretty special to be included! I also felt inspired!
I was immediately drawn to the Santa’s Reindeer block on the cover by Lorna @ SewFreshQuilts. I had to make it!
Which made me wonder…
What would my block look like in Christmas Fabric? Would it go with Santa’s Reindeer? Can you see where I’m headed here? Yup, down the holiday rabbit hole! But I just love the holidays so I was happy to dive into my Christmas stash!
I think they look like sugar plums ~ Wait, what are sugar plums?
Look at this guy! Can you even stand how cute Santa’s Reindeer is?
I fussy cut the little stars in his eyes.
Look at them together… Dreamy!
I’ve already started another Modern Pods block for the other side of Santa’s Reindeer… I’m feeling festive :O)
