ON DEMAND CLASS
As a bolt-on to the pdf pattern, you are able to enrol onto the Santa On Demand Class where you can see a full demonstration of me making the Santa Hat block. Select the On Demand Class option from the drop down box above to be automatically enrolled onto the class and to receive a copy of the pdf pattern.
You can read more about the Santa On Demand Class on the class page
This pattern features the same block in two different sizes. I would recommend for a beginner to start with the 10″ version of the block as the pieces are larger in size. There are a couple of smaller pieces (particularly when it comes to the 6″ block) and there are a few seams to match when joining sections (refer to green circles on page 4), but if you take your time, it is achievable.
This pattern assumes that you already know how to paper piece so there are no FPP technique tips included with the instructions, but if you are unsure, then the On Demand Class will be just what you are looking for.

The Fancy Easter Egg FPP pattern makes a fun 8″ Easter themed block. The pattern allows you to use lots of beautiful fabrics.
It would look super as a mini wall hanging or could be included in a larger quilt. Add a few extra sashing strips and it turns into the front of a cushion!
The Facets of the Heart FPP pattern makes a beautiful, slightly rounded heart. Make it up in a whole rainbow of colours or make one up in one solid colour to make a bold statement. You could even try out several tones of the same colour.
Just imagine how stunning it would look as a wall hanging or incorporated into a quilt. It would also look great on a cushion or pillow cover.
