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.
