Christmas Sweater Quilt Pattern


You could go along with the crowd and simply WEAR your Christmas Sweater.

But since you know how to quilt, why not buck the crowd and snuggle under it instead?


Boxes & Bows


When I was a kid, I was friends with a girl that lived up the street and learned of something I never believed possible. 

Her twin brothers would OPEN their Christmas presents BEFORE Christmas and then re-wrap them when their parents weren't home!

I was gobsmacked!—before I even knew what gobsmacked was and that it really was a thing.

But with these pieced presents, everyone will be able to enjoy their Christmas surprise without ruining anything for anyone else--including themselves!

Elfin' Around


THEY always say you can tell a lot about an Elf by the shoes he wears.

The University of Kansas actually studied this and concluded that, with 90% accuracy, you could predict a person's personality by simply looking at their shoes.

I wonder what these elf shoes say about their wearers?

The pattern sample is made with Moda's "Naughty or Nice" fabric line from 2020.

Pines & Cabins


Put on your snow boots and head into the woods for a winter wonderland.

As you walk, diamonds sparkle in front of trees covered with hues of  red and green as if they're wearing caps festively lit up at night - it's hard not be enamored by their beauty!

Then turn right where stars twinkle among an endless field packed full snuggly between two pines. 

This is the world conjured up by BasicGrey.

Holly Jolly Wreath

Fat Quarter Friendly icon

The evergreen branches in a wreath are used to signify eternal life.

By hanging the branch on one's door, Christians were inviting Christ into their home. Some believe that the custom originates back in ancient Rome where they would use these for victory purposes or blessings from gods above.

The modern Christmas wreath, or holiday garland, is a welcoming sign to adorn your doorstep in the spirit of celebrating.

Starry Snow Globe

Fat Quarter Friendly icon


As a child, they fill us with wonder. As adults, they remind us of a simpler time.

Fun snow globe factoids...

The first snow globes were invented towards the end of the 1870s but were not patented until the early 1900s.

The holder of that patent was an Austrian named Erwin Perzy.

The first patented snow globes were an offshoot from making the newly invented light bulb brighter for the operating room.

Glycerin is the liquid that keeps the bit of snow suspended.

Figgy Pudding


Figgy pudding is a kind of fruit-filled dessert that's well known and loved worldwide—especially in England—even if it isn't always understood.
