A Charming Christmas from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

Summertime is almost here so that means the new collections of Christmas fabrics will be arriving in the stores soon.

So it is the perfect timing for the Fat Quarter Shop to release another one of their shortcut quilt patterns.  This festive project uses Charm Packs.



The Fat Quarter Shop asked me which Christmas collection I wanted to use and I picked Little Tree by Lella Boutique.  I knew it was going to look great with the White Grunge fabric I wanted to use for the background.





And here is my finished quilt!
Isn't it fun?

This shortcut pattern ...

A Finish From Leftovers from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

I STILL can't share my shortcut quilt finish for the Fat Quarter Shop blog hop.  But I am going to share the little finish I made from the leftover fabric!




Any time I make a quilt design that has large "flip corners", I try and turn the bonus triangles into HSTs.  I had only ten approximately 4" little blocks to play with.




I decided to turn them into this fun little Christmas table topper.  It measures about 14" square.  I just had to dig through my holiday scraps and find an extra charm square to use framed as the ...

Charm Square Conundrum from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework



With more time on my hands right now, I am pulling out some projects with far ahead deadlines. 
 I may not have the time in the future!

I have been holding onto a couple charm packs to make a Christmas quilt.  I always have a hard time tearing open that little paper band.  And when the pattern doesn't use all of the charms, I have to make decisions on what prints I am going to use and what charms I will toss in the scrap bins.
Scraps are always easier for me to use!

Here are the prints I ...

FROM HEART OF WINTER BUS TOUR from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Hello Quilters.  Remember the lovely charm pack that the Attic Window Quilt Shop distributed to all those on the Heart of Winter Bus Tour?  Well, I didn't get to go, but when at the shop one day, noticed there were some charm packs left.  I bought one and decided to make this table topper.  It is so cute!  Though I didn't use the book that was also distributed with the charm pack, I did pick up a Fiddle Dee Dee charm pack and am busy making a quilt from that book, Third Time's a Charm.  Can't ...

Leaving It All On The Table from From the Strawberry Patch...

I have started out the month by finishing up a couple of table toppers for fall. Both of these were done from charm squares. The first, shown left, is called "Split Square" and came straight from Country Threads' book: "Sew Charming". This was the small quilt that I hurriedly pieced together before the all-important block "trim down" stage.
