Christmas Bow block

I have been making blocks for Lorna's "Have a Jolly Little Christmas" quilt along.  Every two weeks, another pattern comes out.  By Christmas, I hope to have a completed sampler quilt ready to snuggle up under on the couch in my living room.

Tonight, I made the bow block.  It had far more pieces than the first two blocks!  

Here is the completed block.  It took quite a while to make this block! 

I will be putting sashing between the blocks in the finished quilt.  Here are the three blocks I have made so far. 

I have another pincushion to add to my collection...this one was a birthday gift from my friend, Pat.

Isn't it cute???  I have a shelf in my sewing room where my pincushions are displayed and this one has joined the others on that shelf.  Someday, I will do a post about my collection! 

Bye for now.


  1. LOVE that pin cushion...great job Pat! Fun to add that one to the collection. I like your bow too. Our quilts will be totally different with your dark background and my Kona 'snow' background!! We'll have to photograph them side by side when we're finished! Yes, this bow had a LOT more pieces than the stockings and mittens, hence only two on my part ROFLOL.


  2. That pin cushion is just adorable and it is fun to see the Christmas blocks!

  3. Your Bow block is perfection! Hope you had a lovely birthday. Your new pin cushion is so pretty! Love those tiny stitches!
