Sew Seasonal Blog Hop - Christmas Wreath

I was recently asked by the lovely Kirsty of Quiet Play and Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts to join in their Sew Seasonal Blog Hop and I have to say that I jumped at the chance. They have produced a range of gorgeous Christmas blocks, some for regular piecing and some paper pieced and they are currently free! As soon as I saw the wreath block I knew what I wanted to do with it and which fabric I wanted to use, so I was over the moon when Kirsty said I could indeed do the wreath block.

Now before I show you, let me just tell you that there are sponsors and prizes and you can enter to win them! Go check out Kirsty and Alyces posts for full details on how to enter and win! But put simply, you make one of their free blocks and enter it into their linky party! So simple and you get to use their great blocks for free, but hurry, after this blog hop the patterns will stop being free and will be available to buy instead
