For color, think traditional Christmas red and green - please no pinks, teal or aquas. Please use a solid bright white or a white on white print.
These blocks will finish at 16" so they should be 16.5" when you mail them.
So, put on some festive Xmas tunes (might I suggest "Straight no Chaser" - if you have Amazon prime, you can stream their new Christmas album for free :) ), and let's get started.
You will need: (38) 2.5" green squares
(2) 3" green squares
(12) 3" red squares
(12) 3" white squares
Repeat with the remaining 3" green square and a 3" white square...then repeat with the remaining red and white 3' squares for a total of:
(2) Green & Red 1/2 square triangles
(2) Green & White 1/2 square triangles
(22) Red & White 1/2 square triangles
Now, grab some Christmas cookies and a cup of hot chocolate, because here comes the fun part… Time to play !
Arrange your squares to form your candy canes as shown below. I chose to sew mine into rows, ironing the seams in opposite directions before joining the rows. Feel free to sew them however is easiest to you .
I'm thinking of doing some appliqué ribbons across the candy canes when I receive all of the blocks...we'll see ;)
That's it - I hope you have a much fun making this block as I did designing it!
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions ~ Merry (early) Christmas!!!!
