Quilt Block Christmas

  • $14.00

A holiday sampler and ornament/fob finishing instructions.

Stitch counts:

Sampler – 129 H x 182 W
One Quilt Block - 48 H x 48 W 

Models are stitched on 35-count Linen hand-dyed fabric from Weeks Dye Works.
A good hand-dyed linen substitute is Chantilly Creme by Lakeside Linens.

Models are stitched with Weeks Dye Works cotton floss (DMC equivalent provided) - you will need one skein of each color listed (unless noted) to stitch the sampler and ornament shown using 35-count linen:

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC):
Curry (3820) 
Garnet (815) 
Hazelnut (434)
Holly (890) - 2 skeins
Hunter (367) 
Liberty (321)
Mascara (310) 
Snowflake (B5200) 

Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and small shown as directed (one strand of floss over-two linen threads) on 35-count linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed floss. For best results, I suggest using the Weeks Dye Works cotton floss.

Package contains charting for the sampler/ornaments, stitching instructions, stitch diagrams, and complete finishing instructions for two styles of ornaments (backed with linen or backed with wool/cotton fabric).

I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.

Stitches (diagrams for all stitches are provided):

Cross Stitch over-two linen threads
Cross Stitch over-one linen thread (cottage door wreath only - can be omitted)
Smyrna Cross Stitch
Partial Cross Stitches 
Back Stitch

Finishing Supplies for Ornaments/Fobs:

Coordinating cotton or wool fabric (fabric backed ornaments)
Fiberfill, cotton balls, or your choice of "stuffing"
DMC 6-strand embroidery floss in coordinating color(s) for twisted cord
Kreinik Custom Corder (mini drill for making twisted cord)
Basic sewing/stitching supplies, ruler, and iron - sewing machine is optional

This design is perfect for stitching with a group of friends as a "Round Robin" - each of your friends can stitch their favorite block(s).

There are many other fun finishing ideas that can be taken from this design - you could easily make a needlebook or floss ring tag using one quilt block square....or make a pinkeep ...or create your own sampler by stitching a couple/few of your favorite block, on it's own, makes a great small framed design...endless creative possibilities!
