Peppermint Candies - Pattern Release

There are certain scents that I associate with different times of the year and peppermint always reminds me of Christmas.  Who doesn't love a good candy cane or peppermint flavored fudge this time of year? 

I'm pleased to share my Peppermint Candies quilt pattern with you.  Peppermint Candies features two-toned Dresden blocks set on an aqua background for a fresh holiday look.  Forget the complex piecing as raw-edge fusible applique makes the block assembly quick and easy. This quilt can easily be left out to enjoy even after the tree has come down.  

If the quilt looks familiar, it was the cover quilt on December / January 2020 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts magazine.  I'm now releasing both a PDF digital download and Print versions of the pattern.  

To make the quilt, I used a variety of solids, tonals and metallics from Michael Miller (yes, Fairy Frost - my favorite!) as well as Soft & Bright batting and Lite Steam-A-Stem II from The Warm Company. 

Patterns are available in my Masterpiece Quilting Etsy shop.  Here is a direct link for the Print Patterns with complimentary shipping as well as the PDF Digital Download version.  

If it seems like something is missing from this post - such as the cool styled shots I normally show ... those are on the calendar for TONIGHT.  Our town has just put up its lighted Christmas decorations and I'm hoping for a great photoshoot.  Check back tomorrow when I load the photos :)

Christmas Quilt Show - Part 2

Last week I shared Part 1 of my Christmas Quilt Show.  In case you missed it, here's a direct link to the eye candy and quilty goodness!  Each post will contain 4-5 Christmas quilts that I've designed.  There is no particular order - so just sit back and enjoy! 

First up is my Wreath Runner & Wall Hanging which are a super fun duo that can add some Christmas cheer really quickly to your décor.  

This pattern works well as a stash buster for a scrappy look or you can use fat quarters for a more planned look. The runner can be easily adjusted for any size table or buffet and you also have option of turning it into a long skinny wall hanging just by changing the placement of the bows.

Wreath Runner & Wall Hanging is available as a pdf digital download pattern or as a complete kit with print pattern.  Apparently, I never loaded the print pattern for sale (oops!).  Let's add it to the coming soon list!  

Next up is Mistletoe Magic.  This throw with matching pillow is a great pair for the living area of your house.  It's quick and easy to make.  I'm really loving my fabric selection because it allows me the option of leaving the quilt out longer.  With the traditional red / green quilts, I feel like they need to be put away when the tree comes down and Mistletoe Magic doesn't have that vibe.  In fact, I think it could be left out year round.  I won't tell if you won't tell! 

Mistletoe Magic is available as both print pattern and in PDF digital download format.  

By far one of the most stunning quilts I have designed is the Jingle Bells Quilt.  This bed-sized beauty is simply gorgeous.  

The swag border is worth the extra work to get that WOW response from your family and guests. 

Jingle Bells Quilt is available in both print pattern and PDF digital download versions.  

The final quilt for this post is my Peppermint Twist quilt.  It's a fun quilt that will bring anyone back to the memories of childhood and peppermint candies.  

Peppermint Twist will work either as a bed quilt or a throw quilt.  Wouldn't it be fun to snuggle under on the couch watching movies? 

Peppermint Twist is available as a PDF digital download pattern.  Print pattern will be coming soon as will some fun photos!

That's all for Part 2 .. stay tuned Part 3 will be up soon.
