Christmas Carol Mystery Quilt Sew Along Block #6

Hope you are enjoying the Farmhouse Threads 2020
 Mystery Quilt Sew A Long!!
It's Wednesday May 6th which means it's MY day to share!!

Myself and eleven other designers have been working hard to prepare our designs, write our patterns, share about ourselves, and get kits ready to send out!!
This has been such a fun theme this year
using Christmas Carols as our inspiration for our blocks!

Jingle Bells is the Christmas Carol assigned to me!!

This fun little "JINGLE" is a favorite during the holidays!!

Read about some Jingle Bell trivia when you print out the pattern!
 Jingle Bells by the Carpenters
I wanted to share some of the photos during the process of making my block.I like to use freezer paper to trace my applique shapes, press it onto wool, and cut them out. I like to use Clover applique pins for hold my wool in place while I stitch. If you prefer fusible make sure to reverse the pattern. 


Here is where I sit and stitch....
I love to pop in my ear buds and watch movies on my iPad while I stitch!! 
Here is a close up of the tiny gold bells I stitched using just a single strand of quilting thread and going around the bells several times to make a satin stitch look.

Hi Debbie,
Thanks sew much for the S is for sew! I was visiting your blog/website yesterday and discovered that fun stitchery!
Today I dropped by again for this weeks Christmas Carol Mystery block ! It couldn't have come at a better time! 12 Wednesdays, 12 weeks of creative joy to break the doom and gloom of Covid 19 around the world.
Thanks for sharing these great patterns! There's always something to be creatively used from the stash of fabric :)
Take care, especially now.
