Snowflakes & Candy Cane Trees
Welcome to the November edition of the Quilt Block Mania blog hop with complimentary block patterns from 25 designers! This month the theme is Winter Celebrations.
I started out creating a snowflake block since I live in Minnesota, however, to incorporate all the colors in the scheme shown below, I then thought of adding candy canes, hearts, and pine trees, so that is how I came up with the silly block name of Snowflakes & Candy Cane Trees. Can you envision all those things in the block? Squint hard and use your imagination:)!
Here’s my rendition of the block using fabrics from my stash. The block is made completely with squares and rectangles.
To speed up the piecing a bit, I sewed together strips and sub-cut them into 2-patch and 3-patch units.

I hope you have fun making this block and combining it with some of the fabulous other blocks created by my fellow participating designers.
Before hopping off to the other designers’ posts, please take a moment to check out my website and browse through my quilt patterns.
Look at this amazing variety of fun winter celebration blocks!
Here’s a list with block names and links to all the pattern designers participating in the Winter Celebrations theme Quilt Block Mania blog hop. Please visit their sites and check out the stories about their blocks! Special thanks to Carolina Moore for organizing the blog hop for us.
