Christmas Quilt Fabric Panels

Have you seen any of our Christmas quilt fabric panels, or the coordinating fabrics?

Keep Christmas In Your Heart . . . All The Year Through.  Now that’s good advice.  Twelve different Santas, each with a saying under them, are surrounded by a ready made border.  You can just sandwich, quilt, and bind.  Voila! A beautful wall hanging. The panel measures approximately 23″ x 44″

 

 

 

 

All Around The Town is a collection of five vintage village shops.  Each panel piece includes four smaller buildings and one very large building.  Of course it’s the quilt shop that is the largest!

 

 

A 24″ x 43″ panel of Rooftop Santas enjoying different aspects of his job.  Any one of these scenes would make a nice little mini quilt all on its own.  A grouping of mini quilts would look pretty festive.  Or you could stack three of them for a small wallhanging.  Maybe a pillow or two or three?  Use a length of 2 panels for a quick lap quilt.  Stitch two scenes together and add a handle for a reusable gift bag. Endless possibilities!

 

 

 

Make a quick, kid-sized, comfy, cheery lap quilt with Christmas Flannel.  Celebrating penguins in wintry scenes are surrounded by dotty borders.  The light colored background is sprinkled with holly and stars.  Sandwich, quilt, bind and call it done!

 

Christmas is fast approaching but, by using panels, there is still plenty of time for Christmas projects!

Easter Quilt Patterns Will Brighten Your Home

Do you need a few more Easter decorations?   Here’s a few patterns….

 

 One of The Wooden Bear’s Straddling series, Straddling Bunny is a fun applique project.  The instructions are clear and all the pattern pieces are full size.  This is easy enough even for a first applique project.  And it’s so cute when it’s finished!  Isn’t he adorable?!

 

Easter Morning Surprise is a penny rug design by Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night.  Pastel colored eggs surround a basket full of Easter candy and flowers.  A few strands of squiggley Easter grass are spilling out of the basket and a couple chicks are in the foreground.

 

The little ones in your life will love these bunnies holding generous sized baskets.  There’s lots of room for goodies!  Bunny Stuff would also make a great hostess gift. 

 

Everyone loves a mug rug.  It makes taking a little break extra special. There’s room for your beverage and for a snack.  Bunny Snacks pattern measures 6″ x 10″.  Make one for yourself and one more for your co-worker.

 

My Bunny Quilt combines piecing and applique for an adorable wall hanging.  The pattern calls for button eyes…. you could use colorful buttons for the centers of the flowers, too.

Browse the rest of the Easter patterns.  Winter will be gone and Easter will be here before you know it.

A Quilt Or A Game?

Next time you make a quilt for a child, consider making a game too!

P is for Play includes instructions for games pieces and a soft die.   A soft quilt to sleep under but first play a quiet, educational game all about the alphabet.  Just the right kind of slow-me-down, relaxing game . . . the next best thing to reading before bedtime.

Now little girls (and boys) can play a favorite sidewalk game indoors with the Hopscotch Mat. Chalk hopscotch was never this colorful! Roll up the mat and take the game anywhere.   Sew a few washers inside fabric pieces for “stones”.

Checker Game Twin Size quilt will lend a playful look to any bedroom.  Or spread it on the floor and play a really large size game of checkers, with room at each end of the playing board for the players to sit on the quilt.  Make checker pieces from leftover fabric and a coordinating pouch to hold them when play is over.

Just by its design this quilt is visually interesting, but when you “Think Inside The Box” and add novelty fabrics it gets even better.  Make pairs of blocks and you can play a matching game.  Or make each on different and a game of “I Spy With My Little Eye” is possible.

While you can’t really play the games on this quilt, Learn To Play is a fun looking quilt.  It would look great hanging on the wall in your family room, or the kids’ playroom.

Making quilts is already fun.  Make a game quilt and double your fun!
