Saturday I sent 6 blocks to Erin for the Sandy relief quilts; I hadn't ever made the Disappearing 4-patch before but it's really easy to make. I think it's a great go-to pattern for quick blocks.
Here's a santa I found on my EQ that I thought was cute.
I searched online for free Christmassy clipart that I'll use, and I also found blocks I liked on the '12 Days of Christmas' Sampler QAL sponsored last year by Sara at Sew Sweetness, and the 2011 Celebrate Christmas QAL sponsored by the Quilting Gallery. I like these three...
The two on the left were paper-pieced, but I put them into Photoshop and printed them out as an applique pattern. I like paper piecing but right now I'm sort of not in the mood for lining stuff up.
Keep praying for the Sandy victims, it's not easy for them. My sister in Newark is trying to keep a good attitude but it's really hard right now; as I'm writing this they still don't have power.
Sew forth and sew on til later
