My granny made many quilts and as a kid I liked to snuggle up in them. I also liked to trace the stitches with my fingers. The geometric designs And cheery colors meant comfort and familiarity. This is the inspiration for my quilt block ornaments.

These patterns are found in the 2019 August issue of Just Cross Stitch and the 2019 Special Christmas Edition of Just Cross Stitch. I used Country French Latte from Wichelt for the fabric. For the thread I used The Gentle Art overdyed floss to have a country look. I then got out my sewing machine, with whom I have a mutually suspicious relationship and did my best to do create a little block ornament that harkens back to my granny’s world.
