Every December I wish I had a Christmas quilt to put on our bed. Making one is on my never-ending list of Things To Do. Maybe by next year.
Many generous quilt designers post free patterns online. I’ve collected a baker’s dozen of some of the prettiest Christmas quilts on the web. Some are traditional, and some are more modern.
These quilts are from AllPeopleQuilt.com (Sorry, I was unable to copy the photos; you’ll have to click the links to see the beautiful pictures):
- Christmas Geese
- Patchwork Pines
- Deck the Halls
- Ruby Reds
- Twin Stars
- Festival of Trees
- Holly Jolly Christmas Quilt
From Amy Smart’s DiaryofaQuilter.com:
Modern Christmas Tree tutorial
Peppermint Pinwheel tutorial. The directions are free, but you’ll need a Dresden Plate ruler (which is nice to have—I have one!)
Found on Quilt Inspiration:
The Holly Jolly quilt is the one I’m most tempted to make. I love scrappy quilts, and I have lots of odds and ends of Christmas fabric left over from other projects. I might make four times as many blocks and add some borders so that I can make it queen sized.
