#4 Sharon Schutt
please email me your mailing info Sharon, and congratulations!!! 
Have fun creating something special 
with this lovely FQ Bundle of Soft Dreams from P&B Textiles!

Now onto November....

I'm excited about this one!! I've made two projects so far in different layouts, both I'm turning into Christmas Tree Skirts, one is even quilted and bound.

If last month was all about geese, this month is all about HST ~ half square triangles ~ I think one of the most versatile blocks to use!!

This months give away is sponsored by 

I was so honoured when I was chosen as one of Calico Cats fabric ambassadors,  and then this lovely Tonga Treats bundle arrived at my door as my first assignment! I know that some don't appreciate batiks, but I do, and these vibrant reds and greens where so fun to work with.

I took 10" squares and turned them into 5" charms! 40 to 160 in a few easy cuts....I always look at the cost of 4 charms to one layer cake and buy the cheaper option. Saved money means more fabric, lol

To half square triangles

Pattern for Christmas Blessings can be found here

The hardest part for me was cutting into the quilt to make the opening for placing around the tree trunk!! Seriously, it took me 10-15 minutes after checking and re-checking my circle placement, to get up the nerve to cut down that seam....

(HST Tutorial)

Draw a line diagonal from corner to corner on the
lightest block of your pairs. With this Omnigrid ruler you place the centre line on each diagonal corner and trace a line down both sides of the ruler.

Place your pairs right sides together

Stitch on both lines or a 1/4" from both sides of your centre line

Cut down the centre of both sewn line, lining the ruler up with both diagonal corners.

I have a Quilt in a Day half square triangle ruler, so I line up my stitch line with the 4.5" line and trim

If you trim with a square ruler, press your block open first, I press my seams open, and then lining up your diagonal seam trim to 4.5"

Hope you are all inspired and ready to take on this months block. Can't wait to see what you all come up with. Don't forget to use #OneBlockWonders2015
