~ Santa Express ~

Hello quilting friends!  I'm excited to share my Design Wall today.  It's something simple but cute.

 I rarely work with panel prints but when I found this Santa Express by Riley Blake at Ben Franklin's I fell in love and knew it would make the perfect little quilt for my grand daughters.  So I purchased two!

After cutting apart the blocks, squaring them up(not easy or fun) then adding frames around them.  I realized I was going to need to add more blocks to this quilt.  The little Christmas tree blocks my grand daughter helped make a couple of months ago will make the perfect addition.

But that still wasn't enough to make the quilt big enough for her twin sized bed.  Two more blocks were needed.  So I quickly drafted an 11.5" Christmas present quilt block.

These look so adorable along side the sweet panel blocks.  

Each one is just as adorable as the next!  It makes me want to trace them and make my own applique from the images.

Want one these cute panels for yourself?  Well I did the leg work for you!  You can find them here.  And a little secret....Walmart has some great reds and greens that match this panel pretty well.  The red Christmas words fabric is one of them.  $.97 a FQ!

I Love Home BOM ~ Block 4 + a GIVEAWAY!

 It's that time again!  Time to share the last block in the I Love Home BOM.  To get more information on this block and all the others just hop on over to Jacquelynne Steve's blog.  Wait don't take off just yet, you'll want to stay for the giveaway at the end of this post!
 Here's my block 4, I love the design, the different sized points look like fireworks exploding.  Yes!  We're having a celebration today!  Wooohooo!  The last block, we did it!

I've had so much fun adding my own little design elements to this BOM.    In this block I opted to leave out some of the windows and hearts on the roof due to the larger print on the fabrics.  

Fussy cutting the the hearts for the center of this block was my favorite part.  I thought about using fancy machine stitches for the flower stems and leaves.  But at the last minute I decided to use up some small scraps of green fabric.  This left no room for the leaves.   
 Most of the fabrics in my quilt are PKM by Lakehouse fabrics.  Many of you may know that this company is no longer making fabric and it's hard to find but if you search Etsy and Ebay you can still find a few of the prints. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what you and all the bloggers in blog hop do with this months block.  The pictures in the Facebook Group and Pinterest Group have been so inspiring.  I'm already thinking about creative new ideas for next years BOM.  

This months giveaway is sponsored by OLFA.  At the beginning of the blog hop OLFA generously gave each of the bloggers a cutting mat, rotary cutter, and a Endurance Blade.  I've been using them since receiving them.   And let me tell you, when they say Endurance Blade they mean it!  Not only have I cut all the fabrics for this quilt using them, I've cut fabric for four other quilts.  The blade and mat are still going strong!

The most exciting news is OLFA is sponsoring this months giveaway.  Here's what you could win.  A cutting mat, rotary cutter and a package of the new Endurance blades.  Due to shipping this giveaway is only open to residents in the US. 

To enter the giveaway all you need to do is leave any ole comment in the comments section below before the end of the day November 12, 2017.  Make sure I have a way to contact you. There's been several no-reply comments.  Add your email address to your comment if you're unsure.  Don't forget to visit all the bloggers in the hop for more entries.
