Paper pieced, quilted AND embroidered in the hoop - these two extra large quilt block designs are perfect for making little wall hangings for holiday season decorating! There are two versions included in the download - a Holiday Stitchmore House and a Winter Stitchmore House. Step-by-step instructions for piecing and embroidering, plus Evy’s favorite quick binding and backing technique, are included.
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 added Baby Lock Sashiko machine details! It’s also a good block to fancy up with hand embroidery and hand sewn decorations. Use your machine’s on-board tools to add lettering across the sky to personalize your Winter House.
The Holiday House 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.
Make your project even sweeter by sewing on buttons, tiny ornaments or other pretty bits as shown on our sample wall hangings. Find the perfect buttons to do that HERE.
