Hello and Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that if you are celebrating you are able to be with loved ones and friends! Today I’m sharing a new quilt pattern I finished up just in time for the holidays. I just love my Four-Square fast & fun quilt pattern. It’s absolutely darling in the Swell Christmas collection by Urban Chiks for Moda fabrics but would be fun in any collection of any style where you’d like the fabrics to really shine.
My daughter Chelsi snapped some pictures of it earlier this week right after I finished up the binding–she did a beautiful job with the photos…and I’m just a little bit in love with this one!
Four-Square Fast & Fun Quilt Pattern Details.
My Four-Patch quilt is really a nice size, finishing up at approximately 70″ x 82″. I used one Swell Christmas Layer Cake (three charm packs would work, too), our tone on tone ivory background print from Clover Hollow, and the Swell Santa print on red for the border and block centers with the Swell trees on red for binding. This quilt is constructed in such a way that the blocks themselves make the block sashing and inner border. It’s really a no-fuss way to get a fun look! And, it’s on sale for $5 in paper and PDF through Black Friday only in the shop!
My friend Marion did a beautiful all-over design for the quilting. I just absolutely love it! The design adds just the right amount of texture to the quilt!
Under the Tree Quilt
My daughter Chelsi also made a fun new Christmas quilt right before we left for Quilt Market! I haven’t had a chance to share it yet, but today seemed like the perfect time! Her Under the Tree pattern features fun packages with bows and is pieced using a variety of prints from our Walkabout fabric collection which will be in shops this January. The quilt finishes at 61″ x 74″ and uses Fat Quarters for the blocks. Marion did the same quilting pattern on this one, and I think it turned out just darling!
You can find Chelsi’s Under the Tree quilt pattern in paper and PDF in her Etsy shop here. Under the Tree will also be just $5 through Friday!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back later today with some Black Friday sale information for quilters!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Love both quilts they are so pretty!
Both are beautiful and seem simple. My kind of sewing. Thanks!
I’ve always liked your designs and patterns. I took advantage of your sale and bought your Four-Square Fast & Fun Quilt Pattern. I love the holiday fabrics but also think it would make a great QOV using my stash of patriotic fabrics. Thanks for the great pattern.
