Christmas in September - FREE Pattern

I have been designing blocks and quilts for my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar since 2006. I compiled one of my favorite Christmas projects into a pdf and I think I need to get that to you NOW so that you can work on it before December, right? This is my Merry Merry Quilt from that first calendar.

Piecing, applique and foundation paper piecing. This project assumes you know how to do these techniques, but my own approach to applique is raw edge. The quilt is 48" x 48". The blocks in the quilt center are 10" square and the angels finish to 5". All templates are full size. Full size foundation. All yardages are listed.

 We have to have a reindeer, right? Or Santa won't be able to get around!

 And my Winter Stars Block:

And we have to have an angel!

You can download this Merry Merry Quilt by clicking the link. I will move it on over to my Craftsy site in the next week or so, but for now, it's on my web site. That means you don't have to fill out a form, etc.

I do hope you enjoy this. And if you make any or all of the blocks, I'd love to see them. It's just about time for me to show more of YOUR quilts from the pictures you've sent.

  13. Oh what a beautiful quilt...the tree, reindeer the star...all are something I would live to have in a christmas quilt. Thank you for the wonderful pattern...and I hope a do the angel correctly..paper piecing is still a trial and error thing for me...

    1. Paper piecing makes me crazy, too. I made a mess of some blocks today until I stopped and wrote the colors on the pattern. My mistakes will be good samples for my students of what NOT to do. Glad you like all the component parts of the Merry Merry quilt.

  15. I just made the pieced block and found that the "C" cutting size is in error. It should be 6.5" instead of the 4.7/8 listed. It is a lovely block and goes together good. Thank you Debby
