The block units are fairly easy to assemble following the illustrations below. The triangle units are precut so no need to make HSTs or QSTs unless that is your preferred method. Take care with the bias seams.

The O block is a good option to substitute a favorite 6" or 12" block that makes your quilt unique. A heart block, a Christmas tree...any of the other Countdown blocks would be a wonderful addition.

O BLOCK:

E BLOCK:

L BLOCK:

Assemble 4 block units to create the finished block.

The very merriest Christmas to you!
