Christmas Baubles Free Quilt Pattern from Craft Gossip

Who doesn’t love some Christmas Baubles?  I know I do and I especially like them when they are made out of fabric.  Look at the darling quilt pattern from Jen Daly Quilts for Moda Bake Shop.  It is just beautiful.

Made with Moda holiday fabrics, this mini measures only 18″ x 24″.  There are a lot of fabrics packed into this small quilt. In fact, it is perfect for a mini charm pack.  If you don’t know, mini charm packs are squares measuring 2 1/2″ square.

Free Pinwheels and Patchwork Christmas Quilt Pattern from Craft Gossip

I think that the thing that stood out to me right away on this Christmas quilt from Andy over on A Bright Corner, was the black sashing.  It is not normally a color that I associate with the holidays, but oh boy does it work with this quilt and these fabrics.

This free pattern can be downloaded from the article.  Because of some of the shapes, it may not be ideal for an absolute beginner, but if you have some experience you may want to give it a try.

The finished quilt measures about 60″ x 69″, so it is ...

October 2021 OMG Finish from Quilt Paint Create

Finishing Waugh Street Christmas was my OMG for October. I even put a label on it because the backing fabric was too busy to write on (the lazy girl’s label).

I bought the charm pack a couple years ago at the AQS show. The vintage look of the fabrics appealed to me. I made sure to use it in a way that kept the charm squares whole.

I’m done sewing Christmas now.

Make sure to visit Elm Street Quilts to see all the other October finishes.

HOPE for Christmas:) from Nestlings By Robin

HOPE
www.nestlingsbyrobin.com

I don't know where my
grandpa got his love of candles
but it passed down to my
mother and to me.
For years one of my shopping
highlights was going to 
Yankee Candle every season
to see what new wonderful
candle décor was available.
Being brought up Catholic
there were many opportunities 
for candle lighting.

Once old enough to light my
own candle in thought or 
remembrance of another was
a big deal for me.
I enjoyed the ceremonial aspect
 of lighting the candle then 
kneeling to prayer.
Then there were the Advent candles
every Christmas season and ...

Christmas quilting for decoration or gifts from Pieced Brain

Christmas quilting for decoration or gifts

Do you like Christmas quilting for decoration or gifts? Here is an idea to turn the blocks you have already made into a finished project!

You saw this quilt before it was quilted and bound (click here for the post), where I worked with 12″ blocks I had made to test quilt patterns. It has become part of my work process: test patterns using similar fabrics so that, one day, I can turn those blocks into a quilt.

It reminds me of the “leaders and enders” process, where you begin and end chain-piecing with scraps of fabrics that you then ...

Sunday Stash October 10, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week.

I finished quilting Waugh Street Christmas and trimmed it. I searched my stash for a red or green binding fabric with no luck. It looks like the border fabric will win by default.

I’m counting out the fabric for the quilt this week and the binding fabric next week.

Fabric In: 7.125 yards

Fabric Out: 7.875 yards

Net Fabric Out: .75 yards

Hitting positive usage has been a real challenge this year. We’ll see how long it lasts.

How did you do this week?
