Sew Seasonal Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Sew Seasonal Blog Hop!  Kristy & Alyce have done a great job of putting the hop together and wrote two awesome patterns as well! 

I worked with ornament #3 from Alyce's Ornamental pattern.  The pattern gives you directions to make either a 5" or 10" block of each ornament.  I chose to use the 5" directions and made some holiday coasters!

The 5" blocks  work perfectly with charm squares.  I only used 3 charm squares plus some white per coaster!  Once you make your block just layer it together with batting and backing, baste, quilt and bind.  They come together quickly and are cute too :)  I will definitely make some more to share with others this Christmas.

From now until the end of November both Kristy's and Alyce's patterns are FREE for you on Craftsy and you can head over to their blogs for a great giveaway!
