There's just something about a mantelpiece that adds such a cozy touch when it comes to holiday decorating. No matter what your decorating tastes are -- country traditional, high Victorian, kid at heart or anything in between -- these instructions will help you sew an eye-catching heirloom that you'll use for years to come.
Created as an add-on for those who have already purchased the Loom&Essence Tanabata Quilt Block primer, these instructions are designed for nine different standard mantel widths ranging from 48 to 96 inches with a standard shelf depth of 8 inches.

I'm a stickler for detail and clarity and strive to make my instructions easy and precise so you'll have fun and great results. All my patterns display nicely on a tablet or other digital device.
I hope you take time to check them out and give them a spin. I'm always eager to receive feedback at email@example.com. Cheers!
