Block #3 : Santa Belt

I had so looked forward to the release of blocks 3 and 4 of I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along.
Then, I had to spend most of my day tending to the business of getting a new phone.
Since I was out, I bought a fat quarter of some green tree fabric.
I had to make something positive out of this day.

I finished block 3, Santa Belt.
My Santa is a Cosmic Santa.
I don’t know if you can see that Santa’s suit has gold stars.

This is the first, and possibly the last time I work with metallic fabric.
I ended up using a light supportive fusible on the back of the metallic.
To make sure it would stand the test of washing, I  placed a piece of the metallic in a cup of water.
It did just fine.

Now, I am trying to decide on fabric for Block # 4.
The ornaments really remind me of the type we used when I was a child.
I need time to think about this one.

    1. I drew up a sketch of a 9″x 9″ square. The top inch would be for adding some sort of drawstring sleeve.
      Buckle Pieces: (2) 1.5″ x 1.5″ squares; (2) 1.5″ x 3.5″ rectangles
      Belt: (1) 1.5″ x 1.5″ square; (2) 1.5″ x 3.5″ rectangle
      Suit: (2) 3.5″ x 3.5″ squares; (4) 4.5″ x 3.5″ rectangles
      I think this might work for small gift bags but I don’t know about bottle bags.
