Ridiculously tiny ornaments
Quilt blocks are always cuter when they are smaller, but don’t think smaller means harder!! Surprisingly, you won’t need to cut tiny little triangles or squares to make this dainty miniature quilt block.
You’ll use a clever method to turn two 2″ squares into two dainty 4-patches (you’ll use just one per ornament), and straight borders and stitch-and-flip to complete the setting triangles.
Use the 2 3/4″ size to trim your tree or as decorative tags for gift giving or move up a size to make festive 4″ coasters.

Simple 9-patch ornaments
Simple 9-patch ornaments can be put together in no time, and you can use any type of Christmas fabrics and fabric scraps to stitch them up.
Here’s how to do it:
Make mini 9-patch blocks using nine 1 ½” squares. Your finished 9-patch will measure 3 ½” x 3 ½”. Quilt, if desired.
Use a piece of backing fabric measuring the same as your ornament front and sew the front to the back right sides together, leaving a small opening for turning.
Fill your ornament with a small amount of polyester stuffing and then insert a hanging cord or ribbon in the opening.
Stitch the opening shut and then hand-stitch a bow to the bottom of the cord, covering your stitching lines.
