Holiday Stitch-a-Long - Week 5

Written by:

It's Thursday, and that's a good day to stitch.  Embroidery and piecing.

This is Holiday Stitch-a-Long Block 5.  Let's call this one Ribbons & Pinecones.

And I think a few of you have been waiting for this... the Alternating block.  The "white chain fabric" are the corner squares in the Chimneys & Cornerstones block.

The fabric can be a single, solid that matches the background used for the embroidery blocks.  Or it can be a scrappy mix of low volume prints on a white and/or ivory background.

Aren't they pretty?

We'll share the final setting and finishing next month, on Thursday, August 20.  There will be a little more piecing to finish the quilt top, and a few more embroidery blocks. 

Just in case you've missed anything:

Be sure to post your blocks and use the hashtag - #ModaHolidaySAL.

Happy Stitching!
