Would love this pattern, however cannot find it anywhere. I am finding the site a little hard to navigate I found the mats and dimensions required but nothing else?

This is such a cute pattern! It is a great item to make for anyone who loves Christmas time! I could make this for any of the people in my life, as we all love Christmas. I would change the background color on some, so they are not all identical. Green would be a pretty background for this super cute gingerbread man!

Super cute! I can't wait to try this for the holidays ahead.

This is one of the cutest squares I have seen in a long time. It would be great in an afghan, as a pillow panel, on its own as a hot pad, or even added to an article of clothing or a bag. There are several different squares to make up a really cute Christmas quilt. Sarah over at Repeat Crafter Me always has such great designs. I am definitely a fan!
