Christmas Quilt for Christmas in July

At the end of July each year, we have what we call Christmas in July.  It is an open house type of affair where we show new holiday fabrics and projects. This includes Halloween, Hanukah and Thanksgiving as well as Christmas.  Each of us who work at the shop make at least a couple of projects.  Here is my first one.

0609 Christmas Pattern

0609 Christmas Fabrics

As you can see, this is not a traditional Christmas quilt in Christmas colors.  The fabric in the upper right is the background.  On the lower left is a panel that forms the middle of the quilt and next to it is the charm pack of all fabrics from the line that I cut using our Accucut.  It only took me a few minutes to cut 8 set of 5 inch squares.  I tied them with scraps from the cutting.

I think this will be a fun quilt to make and especially to quilt.  If I quilt between each of the blocks in the panel, I don’t think you will be able to tell it isn’t pieced.




  1. Ok I can't wait to see how this one comes out...I'm sure you will put some killer quilting on it!


  2. Melinda this christmas collection of fabrics is adorable.
