Machine Quilting a Farmhouse Christmas Quilt Block with Natalia Bonner

Hey friends! You probably remember last week I shared a bit of the quilting on this adorable Farmhouse Christmas quilt with you, well, there was just one more block, that I absolutely loved and I have to share it with you!



I did a bit of more modernism free-motion quilting. I think this motif is great for a beginner, or an advanced quilter. You could even use the 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler and make this motif even more precise if you'd like!



This quilt was pieced by me! Pattern is Farmhouse Christmas by Center Street Quilts on Etsy.
