Winter Wonderland Sew Along

Today is my stop on the Winter Wonderland Sew Along with Fat Quarter Shop!

We are sewing the super cute Sleigh Bell Sampler from Sheri Falls wonderful new book Winter Wonderland.

The block I made is the Ornament Block. I used Kona Cotton Ice Fappe for the main ornament fabric. I used a little bit of Hello Darling stripes for the middle section along with Kona Bone color. The background fabric is Kona Snow. I love this little block! I am really crazy for these colors!

I turned my block into a trivet to use during Christmas. Can you see the wrinkles? After I had this all crocheted around the edge and was finished I decided to give it a little press. I sprayed it with starch and put the iron to it and poof! I still think it is so cute!!! I think I might embroider Merry Christmas 2015 on it or something like that.

I want to make this Peppermint Swirls tablerunner. It's adorable! I really love those pinwheels. The quilts in Winter Wonderland are so pretty. I'd like to make one for my mom and mother in law for Christmas. As I'm typing this there is a coolness to the air and I'm sipping hot tea. I can't believe August is coming to an end. Christmas will be here before we know it! I better get started!

HERE is more info and the other blocks and posts for the Sleigh Bell Sampler. Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Sewing!

Your block looks great. I have been so in love with crochet edging. It just completes everything.
