Holiday Patches by Susan Kerndt

My stitching birthday present earlier this year was Holiday Patches by Susan Kerndt. I was hopeful that I would have started this by now but another project that came along took priority (and I can’t share it for awhile). With Santa bringing even more projects, I decided that I would share this now.

Susan has beautiful diagrams in her booklet. I love how there is a grid on each page with large colored diagrams and instructions for each section.

I saw three pieces of this design all stitched differently at Woodlawn Needlework Exhibit this year. Each very pretty! I would love to do several of these.

I’m hopeful that my stitching buddy will have some extra fabric in Linda’s Boutique that I can have or even save some scraps for me. She buys lovely coordinating fabrics for her quilting projects. It doesn’t need large pieces. Then, we can go shopping to get coordinating threads. More fun for 2020!

Several of your NJ friends will begin this project in January, Melita! A suggestion when you want to pick out your fabric—cut “windows” the size of the block where you will place the fabric so that you can audition the designs you can/will use.

Good to know. I wish I was closer to you and the NJNA!

I also saw this piece at the Woodlawn Needlework Show & fell in love with it. Do you know where I can buy the instruction booklet? I’ve not been successful with an internet search. TIA
