A Christmas Quilting Round-Up ;)

So I am just about done with the projects I have planned for this years handmade Christmas. I did keep it fairly low key this year ;)  I just love Christmas quilting and sewing!!!  I love listing to christmas music as I stitch away with happy reds and greens and I love seeing my kids snuggle up in their favorite Christmas quilts that get pulled back out every December ;)   And since I have to keep the projects from this year under wraps for a few more days, I thought it would be fun today to share some of my Christmas Projects and Quilts from the past few years, most of them have tutorials so if something grabs your eye you can always bookmark it for next years Christmas Quilting ;)  So here it is . . . A Christmas Quilting Round-Up.

This is Ribbons and it is a fun lap size quilt made using a Jelly Roll Race technique.  It is fantastic for a quick Christmas Quilt and there is a tutorial for it here ;)

I planned on making matching stockings for about 10 years, and finally last year I got to check it off the Christmas Project List ;)   I love these happy Monochromatic Stockings and plan on hitting some after Christmas sales this year to getting matching tree ornaments ;)  Gotta love a reason to redo the tree ;)  Ad if you need to make some matching stockings as well, you can find the tutorial here.  

This O Christmas Trees lap size quilt was a fun improv project with just a tiny bit of paper piecing.  It is a great way to introduce yourself to paper-piecing if you want to give it a try.   And I had so much fun quilting this one ;)  You can find a tutorial for it here.  

This Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar is a throw back from quite a few years ago.  My children still enjoy lifting the flaps and finding a special Christmas activity to do each day of the month.  This was featured at the Moda Bake Shop and you can find the tutorial here ;)

True North was a very special and fun quilt that I got to design for Riley Blake to hang at Quilt Market.  This beauty incorporates beautiful big blocks that just pop.   I recently (insert finally) got a pattern written for this quilt with four size options.  You can find the pattern here.  

I made up this adorable Hot Hot Chocolate Table runner earlier this year and am just loving having it out this Christmas ;)  I made this as part of the Winter Wonderland Book tour that the mug block can be found in and the book can be found here.  

Spinning or Spiraling was a Bee Block quilt from a few years back.  I designed the block and then had my wonderful bee mates each make a block.   It also happens to be made from my all time favorite Christmas fabric line, Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater by Moda.  I wish I could go back in time and stash a whole ton of it ;)    There is a tutorial for this quilt here.

This Joyful Jelly Roll Tree Skirt was so much fun to make and then Barbara did her feather magic on the quilting!!!   I made it earlier this summer and now it gets to have it's first year under a tree, although the kids didn't want to lost the Santa one from previous years so I have to switch it out from day to day :)  The design is by Fat Quarter Shop and the pattern can be found here.  

And it seems only right to finish up with the most recent finish that I can share ;)  This No Bake Jolly Bar quilt has been such a fun addition to the Christmas Quilt collection this year.   I just finished it at the beginning of this month and it is the one everyone wants to snuggle in now.  The pattern is by Fat Quarter Shop as well and you can find a free download of it here.  

And that is my Christmas Quilting Round of years past :)   I hope you found a project that you might like to add to your Christmas Project List for years to come ;)   

Merry Christmas and be sure to pop back in tomorrow for TTGD, as I have a special Christmas surprise planned ;)  
Pin It!


  1. Wow! Thanks for the round-up! So fun to look at all your projects! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!

  2. Fabulous Christmas quilts! Thanks for sharing!

  3. what activities do you do for the advent calendar? I've done a LEGO set for years with them, but I think it's the last year, at least for my oldest two.
    I'd get a lego set and split it into 24 or 48 or 72 sections following the manual and wrap the sections together into gifts for each day.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
