These designs are slightly smaller than the extra large designs from the original Holiday Stitchmore House set. 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”. In addition to the four designs, the zip file download also includes step-by-step PDF instructions.
The Winter House (not shown in the photos below) 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. Use your machine’s on-board tools to add lettering across the sky to personalize your Winter House.
The Holiday House (shown below) 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.
