Holiday Stitchmore House – Petite!
Paper pieced, quilted AND embroidered in the hoop—these quilt blocks are perfect for making little wall hangings for holiday season decorating! There are two variations of house blocks (Winter House and Holiday House) with TWO sizes for each: 6” x 7.48” and 7.78” x 9.70”.
The Winter House has quilting-only details such as all-over stippling on the sky background, wavy line stippling on the roof and ground, and straight lines on the house, plus extra bits – windowpanes in the window and a candy-striped arch on the door. Use the Winter Block as is or make it extra special with additional embroidery designs from your stash OR added Baby Lock Sashiko machine details! It’s also a good block to fancy up with hand embroidery and hand sewn decorations. NOTE! The last photo shows the Winter House block decorated for Thanksgiving with designs from the Autumn Borders collection.
The Holiday House (shown in the photos) is constructed and stippled exactly like the Winter house except it includes extra embroidery details to really spice it up: Snowflakes in the sky, a candle in the window, candycane edging on the sides of the window, fir tree appliqués with “feather-stitching”, and a garland with holly leaves and berries.
