So here we are… Week 9, and just 3 more weeks to go. How are you coming on your project, are you finishing the shapes each week? I’d love to see what your up to, why not upload yours to the Flickr Group so I can see how you are coming along.
This block is an 8×8 shape, the pdf includes both the reversed and non-reversed shapes. It does also include machine embroidery files. However, because there are so few outlines, using the markers makes more sense.
Here we are in week 8 and close to finishing up.. This week is the Shepherd Boy, and the two sheep. These are very very easy to applique. While the boy does have more shapes than the sheep do, it’s still an easy shape to put together.
No tutorials this week, just straight downloads to your shapes of the week.
Today we start Oh Holy Night. I’ve loved how mine has turned out and I hope you to will make this wallhanging and let me see what you’ve done. I have meticulously laid this out so each week we’ll cover new parts of the wallhanging. Most of this wallhanging is applique shapes, such as the animals, trees, people and other objects. But the most technical part of this wallhanging is the background and without that you can’t really start this wallhanging. It wouldn’t matter if you made all the shapes first, without the background you have nothing to place them on. Once you get beyond the background, this wallhanging goes together easily and quickly. The shapes are not tedious, they are simple to set in place and there are not tons and tons of little pieces. Continue reading →
Artwork for Oh Holy Night is mainly created by Angie Wenke.
All other artwork was drawn by Marian Pena in Electric Quilt. (Landscape, Trees, Optional Other Star, (not shown) Building, sitting lamb (not shown)).
I am estimating that Oh Holy Night will take about 12 weeks to complete, but it is possible it may finish sooner or run a bit longer. While I have made a set schedule, sometimes, real life gets in the way and I may not get something posted on time.
It hasn’t been easy to post this one… The last one in my 2014 Block of the Month series.
While I may post bonus blocks from time to time, this is the official last one in the series.
No tutorials with this one, although it is probably one of the more difficult blocks to put together, I’ve already covered everything in previous blocks, so if their is something you need to learn you’ll find that info in my Tutorials section.
