Texas Christmas Quilt – Elfin Magic

Today’s quilt block, Elfin Magic, is now complete.  Don’t you just love this block? The little elf shoes and plaid tights are so adorable. 

While this block is not a traditional block pattern, it did come together fairly quickly. It used a couple of stitch and flip corners to create the angle pieces – I’m thankful for the designer, Lisa Paul, not using HSTs for the little fiddly bits.

My only frustration so far with Texas Christmas Quilt, is I have not been able to chain piece my work.  When I piece a top, I love to create long chains and then do all my pressing. I seem to be sewing a few pieces and then heading to the ironing board.  I must say I miss just getting in a zone with the hum of my sewing machine.

I picked up the pattern for this block of the Texas Christmas Shop Hop at Must Love Fabric in Colleyville, Texas. 

Look for another block tomorrow.
