New Puppy Mini Quilt - Vintage Christmas Sew Along

Welcome to the Vintage Christmas Sew Along!!! Today I'm sharing the New Puppy Block from Lori Holt's newest book, Vintage Christmas

Vintage Christmas book is amazing -- all 207 of pages of it! I love how clearly Lori writes her patterns (go grab your Alphabitties). Plus she gives 2 sizes  for each of the 42 blocks (6" and 12")! All the blocks are traditionally pieced too.
