Christmas Quilt Patterns Galore

The QuiltersWarehouse home page is all dressed up for Christmas.  You’ll find quick links to lots of Christmas quilt patterns . . . .  all kinds of patterns for all kinds of Christmas projects.



Most of these patterns would make great gifts either all sewn up and made for your non-crafty family and friends or the patterns themselves for any quilters you know.   Of course even quilters would love to recieve a project already finished – and they will truly appreciate the work and love that went into the making.

Any patterns that you really like, but know that you won’t have time to make before Christmas, you can add to your wish list. Maybe you’ll find them under the tree come Christmas morning.  Then while the rest of the family is dozing after all the festivities, or playing with their new “toys” you can “play” with your new patterns.   Or add a quilt jigsaw puzzle to your wish list.  That’s something you can enjoy with family and still get your “quilting fix”!

Just click on the blue “wish list” button that shows up on every item page.  

And don’t forget the Christmas Quilt Fabric.  If you don’t use it this year you can never have too much stash!

Fall Home Decor Patterns

Some of us are still experiencing a heat wave but Fall really will be here before we know it!  It’ll be time to put away the watermelon theme placemats and the sailboat wall hanging and replace them with your favorite fall quilts.    And time to make something new to add to your collection.

 Fall Glory is a two for one quilt pattern.  The large Fall Glory quilt (54″ x 67.5″) and the small Acorn Trail quilt (48″ x 59.5″) are both perfect as wall hangings.   You could also toss them across a couch or easy chair for snuggling under on cool autumn evenings.  Applique instructions are given for both hand and machine.


                                                                                           Measuring just 15″ square, this small Fall Wreath really packs a punch of color.  Foundation piecing makes the construction easy and precise.


With Perennial Favorites you can make a 24″ x 40″ Fall table runner and have instructions (including applique patterns) for a Christmas runner and a Spring/Summer table runner.  You’ll be set for the year!


Anne Cosgrove’s book All For Fall will give you quilts to make for this Fall, and some for next Fall too.  Projects include large quilts, wall hangings, pillows, table runner, table topper, placemats and more.  Anne repeats many of the design elements in the different items so if you make more than one your pieces will complement one another for a beautiful coordinated Fall look.


After you check out these and other quilt patterns, look at the Vine Creek and Gobble Gobble quilt fabric collections…. they are perfect for Fall projects.

Garden Party Quilting Fabric by Blackbird Designs

Soft muted shades of browns, greens, pinks and cream come together to create the romantic fabric collection Garden Party. 

Delicate cabbage roses in various stages of bloom on a green background form the focus fabric called Garden Party Floral Basil.  This would work well as a large border fabric.  Fussy cutting the flowers would be another option.


 Garden Party Bird Plum is a chocolate brown with white dots and pink and white flowers that are smaller in scale than the focus fabric.  A few birds glide among the flowers.    The colors are distributed evenly enough so that nearly any size strip of fabric will have a sampling of all the colors.


  Three rose blush colored prints complement the florals.  The Daisy and Seeds both have the same shade background, the cream colored dots lightens the overall look of the Seeds Rose Blush.  The Leaves Rose Blush print has the blush color in the leaves over a cream colored background.




. . . . another Leaves print with a green background and small green leaves . . .



And a green panel print, Garden Party Stitchery Basil, with vines, letters and wording finishes the vintage look.  This panel is 2/3 of a yard.



Now that you’ve seen this beautiful fabric collection you’ll have to browse the quilt patterns to find just the right one… or two… or three…

Lil’ Ducky, You’re The One!

Have you seen the new Lil’ Ducky quilt fabrics?  Caleb Gray designed them for Robert Kaufman fabrics and they are just so cute!


Lil’ Ducky Yellow has a pale yellow background with clouds and raindrops is covered with bright yellow little ducks dancing in the rain, using pretty blue umbrellas (both sucessfully and not!), swimming in puddles and walking around with galoshes and a rain hat. 



There are two coordinating blues.  Lil’ Ducky Summer has lots of squares in varied shades of blue.  If you look closely you’ll see that some of the squares seem to sparkle. Sun hitting water from rain?


The other blue is Lil’ Ducky Blue Bubbles and it’s just that…. blue bubbles in different sizes and different shades on a light blue background.  And sparkles are scattered among the bubbles.


And don’t miss Lil’ Ducky With Umbrellas… a white background covered with different colored umbrellas.  Each umbrella has three different shades of its color, adding to the fun look of this fabric.



Now all you need is a baby quilt pattern.  Rock-A-Bye Baby is a simple one – nice and easy and quick - you’ll have a baby snuggled up with those ducks in no time.


Puppy Love Baby Quilt and Diaper Bag would look great with ducks instead of puppies.  Nice easy projects but with great looking results… really showcase those cute duckies.   These two would make a perfect baby shower gift.

Four Patch Quilt Patterns – Simply Creative

The four patch quilt block is probably the first block many of us learned to make.  Such a simple, easy block with so much potential!  Here are some patterns that make use of the four patch.

Rainbow Cuddler alternates four patch blocks with large square of fabric to create several diagonal rows of color.  Quick and easy to make, you can keep the rainbow theme or use favorite colors or even the colors of a favorite sports team.



 Carrie Nation ’02 sets four patch blocks on point and gives this queen size quilt lots of motion.   Since stars are also an incidental part of the design, red white and blue fabrics would be another great option for this quilt.



Two color hearts appliqued to two color blocks alternate with four patch blocks in Four Patch Hearts.  Instructions are included for several sizes… small, twin, double and king.


Flow Blue – Charm looks complicated but it’s not!  Four patches and half square triangles are all need.  Perfect for charms squares with lots of darks and medium.  Then add your favorite light background.  Play with other colorways.  1930′s prints would make this a cheery quilt.  Or all pinks for a little girl.


Four On The Floor is so quick and easy!  Rows of four patches set on point are alternated with a row fabric.  The designer used Look Learn Playtime but you can use any that you like. If you don’t have a favorite row fabric, stripes would be a fun alternative.

Who knew learning to make a four patch would open so many creative doors? Browse through some more quilt patterns on your own and see what other simple blocks turn into fabulous quilt patterns.
