Your 6th Christmas gift...

Back in 2009 I designed quite a few Christmas tree stitcheries, and all had a touch of whimsy about them!
Today's gift for you is a pretty heart-strewn tree displayed inside a rather sweet mini-quilt...



It has swirls and twirls...

...and three rather classy prairie points to add some sensibility to the whimsy!
The fabric is an old Mary Engelbreit line, and it still makes me sigh with delight...

Download your free 'Tree of Hearts' min-quilt pattern HERE until December 10th.

I've stitched this design a few times since 2009.
First in silver and gold, 
then in the colours above, 
and finally in pretty pastels as a cushion for my dear friend Fee a few years ago...


 In your free pattern I've also included the 'hearts come home for Christmas' block, in case you'd like to incorporate it in your own 'Tree of Hearts' project.

So tell me, what will you make from this stitchery?
The mini quilt or something else?


 Between stitching the next Club designs I've been experimenting with creating a grain-free/sugar-free Christmas cake...


Mr E has christened this one the "Not-Christmas-Cake" because it still hasn't got enough fruit in it for his liking, so back to the kitchen I go!

 I'll see you tomorrow with your 7th Christmas gift!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
