Christmas just got a little cuter! Big blocks of fun novelty fabric make this quilt a quick sew that is a delight to create. Plus, in this large lap size, it will keep you and your whole crew warm or make a memorable gift.
Christmas Dash is a fun twist on a traditional churn dash quilt. Pull out your favorite red, green, and neutral fabrics to create this pattern! The finished quilt measures 56 ” x 68″, the perfect size for a living room throw.

This is an Irish Christmas quilt made with clovers. Finishing as a 50” square, it can be hung on the wall or as a throw. The pattern combines both appliqué and machine piecing. Choose your favorite prints or solids for this one, either would work perfectly!
Inspired by a move to Washington state, the designer created this quilt to remind her of the surrounding forests. Make it in similar colors for a contemporary Christmas tree look, or change it up with your favorite colors. The quilt pattern calls for 10 fat quarters with additional yardage needed for background triangles and borders but it would look fabulous sewn up scrappy style as well!

Gift Scrapped is a terrific way to use up leftover bits of Christmas fabric. The blocks build quickly using strip piecing methods. Make one to use as a placemat, a table runner or lap quilt. The pattern includes directions for all three! With simple piecing, a weekend of sewing is all you need to create this simple quilt.
