1. Improv Christmas Tree Quilt Block
This whole festive quilt is made with improv piecing, which makes the piecing process so fast! Grab some green, red and white fabrics from you stash and make this truly one-of-a-kind quilt in a flash.

2. Patchwork Heart Mug Warmer
Every cup of coffee, cocoa or tea will feel that much warmer when you wrap it in this sweet mug rug. You’ll make three small blocks, sew them together and add a button and closure. Easy!
3. Blue Evergreen Winter Quilt
Try a new technique with this minimalist design: The large tree motif is made with reverse appliqué, which is where you cut away fabric on the quilt top to reveal the fabric underneath. With a flannel backing, it’s perfect for chilly winter nights.
4. Sugar and Spice Mug Rug
It’s (almost) a fact that Christmas cookies just taste better when served on a handmade mug rug. That’s especially true for this one, with an appliqué design inspired by some of the season’s sweetest treats.
5. Snowglobe Ornament
Dive into your scrap bin and stitch up these cute ornaments. To use up even more scraps, make it double sided.
6. Wonky Christmas Trees
If your Christmas style includes a bit of whimsy, start with this fun-filled tree pattern. Make one tree as a wall hanging, or string a few together for a table runner.
7. Wrap Your Christmas Quilted Stockings
Dream of sewing your own stockings, but short on time? Use this straight-forward patchwork pattern! We think it’d look great in our Home for the Holidays fabric.
8. Enchanted Christmas Tree Runner
There’s a little bit of magic in this design: No matter which side of the table you’re sitting on, you can see the star-topped tree design. Plus, it only uses two Fat Quarters!
9. Santa Mug Rug & Placemat
A geometric Santa Claus will greet you with your morning coffee or Christmas dinner. The open spaces on Santa’s beard and the background are the perfect opportunity to experiment with new quilting motifs.
10. 12 Days of Christmas Quilt
Forgot the Advent calendar? Instead, count the 12 Days of Christmas, from December 25 to January 5. Each pocket of this quilt includes a treat and a lesson for little ones to explore.
11. Quiet Bean Bag Game
Keep the kids busy as they wait for Santa’s sleigh with this simple pattern! You can probably even use some fabric from your stash.
12. Round Christmas Tree Topper
Don’t be intimidated by the round base for this table topper. The pattern includes tips and instructions to guide you through it.
