Christmas Candy Cane

Christmas Block

Every time I find a little bit of time, I try to squeeze in some time to make something new for the holiday.  
Are you looking for a quick project, too?

This little  paper pieced block measures 6 inches, and is quick and easy to make.

I am thinking of making a table runner ... adding the Santa Hat and  then picking out another Christmas block from Quilt Art Designs ( to be determined yet!)
Santa Hat   

Quilt Art Designs  blog  currently has  a free  daily Christmas pattern---one per day, that is free for the day it is released!   After their release, then the patterns  are available in her Craftsy shop.  

Check out the stocking pattern ....  I am thinking of making that one to add to this project...

I'm off to my sewing room!

  1. Susie you do such beautiful work! I am loving your candy cane! The stocking would look great and I like the pattern for those sweet mittens a whole lot too. Can't wait to see what you put together! Happy Christmas!

  2. Oh, this is just the prettiest Christmas block! Your fabric picks are spot-on - I love the green ribbon and the gold sparkly background. Sometimes I have trouble planning ahead, so that all of the pieces will show up in the end. Yours is perfect!

  3. Great idea to add another block and make a Christmas runner! I love the cany cane block; it's so cute with the bow. Thanks for the heads up about the free block...I am going to check it out!

  4. A runner would be lovely to showcase your paper-piecing talents. I look forward to seeing the next block. xx

  5. It's beautiful, Susie!! These blocks would be so great as a table runner. I love your paper piecing :)
