A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along - Month 9

I'm so excited to share this month's block for "A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along" because it's the last block! And you know what that means? Next month we'll get to sew it all together! Yay!!!

I think each month I say this is my favorite block! But I think this "Candy Cane Lane" block is so cute, especially a whole line of them! You can get candy canes in about any color and flavor these days, so don't be afraid to use non-traditional colors for your candy canes.

My only tip this month is to pair up your two fabrics of candy canes for each block when you sew so that you don't end up with a hook that is a red floral with a stick that is a green stripe. Again, ask me how I know!

These long rows aren't the easiest to photograph, so I apologize for the poor photo. But anyway, here are my three versions of this month's block.

If you share photos of your blocks on social media, use the hashtag #AScrappyHappyHolidayMysterySewAlong so we can all see. See you next month when we sew it all together!
