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. Detailed measurement charts and diagrams walk you through the process of determining the proper amount of fabric to purchase, and the correct size to cut for your mantel.
No mantel? No worries! The mantelpiece also looks great draped across the back of a sofa. Now that I have completed my holiday mantelpiece, I'm going to whip up a new variation for a few more seasonal events (pink and white for Valentine's Day ... red, white and blue for July 4 ...).
14-page pattern is optimized to display on a computer or tablet screen, and printed on letter-size paper set to landscape (sideways) layout.

Over the years I have toyed with the idea of being a full-time fiber artist. But after taking this idea for a test drive I realized all the joy of creativity was being sapped out of me. So I scrapped the concept (so pun intended) and decided to simply enjoy playing with fabric without any pressure or restrictions.
Every now and then, the muse really hits and I create a pattern which captures a technique I have developed. This includes my Tanabata Origami Quilt Block and its spinoffs, and the Amherst Body Pillow Quilt pattern which is lots of fun to make.
I hope you take time to check them out and give them a spin. I'm always eager to receive feedback. Cheers!
