Blocks 5 and 6 in the series:
These paper foundation pieced blocks for your knick knack shelves are a champagne glass and a small lamp. Finished sewn height of these blocks is meant to be 8 inches. The lamp block is narrower, but you can make it any width.
Knick Knack block 5: A Champagne Glass could be done with a lustrous fabric for extra sheen. An added suggestion is to add some little circles of a sheer blue fabric with appliqué to look like floating bubbles.
Knick Knack block 6: A Little Lamp to light your shelves. With an extra few running stitches in a dark floss and sewing on a small button you can add a little pull chain to your lamp as shown below in the sample block illustration. This block is meant to be a sewn size of 6 inches.
Below is the miniature version of the champagne glass paper pieced block - a link below it will lead you to the full sized block for printing out which is marked with numbers for piecing.

These blocks are all designed by Susan Druding using Electric Quilt 4 software.
