Christmas Quilt Show - Part 1

This is a hard post for me ... I'm one of those people who like their celebrations in order - Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas.  But I'm also kinda getting tired of fall - I'm over the Pumpkin Spice Latte look in the house. I'm over leaves needing bagged in the yard. I'm over the squirrels coming up on the front porch and munching on my decorative corn! 

But I'm also a realist, I know if red and green quilts and decor start going up at the end of November, then you have to start making them now!  

So, let's get this Christmas Quilt Show party started.   

First up, one of my favorites!  Christmas Friends.  Strong reds and greens paired with white make this quilt appear as fresh as newly fallen snow.  

I like to describe it as a little bit modern, a little bit contemporary and oh so wonderful to snuggle under watching movies while the snow falls outside. 

Christmas Friends is available as a PDF digital download pattern.  Watch for the print patterns to be coming soon!    UPDATE:  Print Pattern is now available! 

Up next is one of my favorite wall hangings - Tree of Presents.  It celebrates what really matters - the presents!  With a bit more whimsical take, there is nothing traditional about this wall hanging. 

The metallic fabric presents pop against the blue background.

One of my most popular wall hanging designs is Oh Christmas Tree.  It celebrates a more vintage decor with an off-white background and muted green tree fabrics. 

It is perfectly sized for behind the buffet or an entry hallway in your home.  

Oh Christmas Tree is available in three options for your convenience. A PDF digital download pattern, a Print Pattern or as a complete Kit with all the fabric to make the quilt top + binding + print pattern. 

To finish up Part 1 of the Christmas Quilt Show (don't worry, Part 2 will be coming!), is my Block & Tackle quilt pattern.  I know the name Block & Tackle sounds more like fishing than quilting, but this quilt design uses panels as the center of the blocks! 

I made this quilt earlier this year using the Winterberry Collection from Benartex fabrics.  The colors are perfect for a primitive / vintage decor with the muted greens, deep brick red and black accent fabrics.  If you missed it, you can catch the blog post here that was part of Benartex's Christmas in July Blog Hop.  

Block & Tackle is available as both a PDF digital download pattern as well as a Print Pattern

Additionally, I designed a couple pillows to go with the quilt and to use the remaining portions of the Winterberry panel.  The pillow pattern is available for free download 

That's all for Part 1.  Leave me a comment if you enjoy the show :)  I've already started on Part 2!
