Hello and happy Friday! I’m excited today to share a little bit more about the Moda Merry Makers Patchwork Quilts and Projects book! I have a lap quilt included in the book and could hardly wait to see what the other Moda designers came up with for this publication! As you will see, there is a little bit of everything included in this great compilation, and you’re sure to find several you want to make now!
The cover is absolutely beautiful! A couple of my favorites are on the cover…I’ll share full photos of them below!
My project is this Gift Wrap Lap Quilt that I made using red and green prints from our The Front Porch, Creekside, and Desert Bloom collections. I had so much fun mixing fabrics from these three groups and love how it turned out!
These holiday pinnies might be my favorite in the whole book. Because I just love how small and cute they are…and the house versions…swoon! Carrie Nelson made these fun pin cushions!
This Gingham Lap Quilt by Corey Yoder is absolutely fabulous too! I might have to make this one just for the sake of how much gingham I grew up with! My Mom and Grandmother both loved gingham and sewed with it quite a bit when I was young!
These Mini Stockings by Joanna Figueroa are a lot of fun, too! Can’t wait to make some of these!
These Christmastide Coasters by Jo Morton are another favorite of mine! A cute little set of four of these would be so fun to make and give!

My favorite project to make is Christmas stockings for my grandchildren!
I love making Christmas quilts. I have started making them for all my brothers and sisters and plan to go to nieces and nephews next. It is going to take me awhile; I have a large family!!
My favorite item to make at Christmas is lots and lots of cookies to give as gifts.
I love to make Christmas quilts and give to someone totally not expecting it.
One of the favorite items I’ve made for Christmas were the stockings for my family (and the cats).
Robyn Ostby says
I love making mini Christmas quilts!
ToniAnne Potter says
It’s a tie Christmas cookies and Christmas tree skirts. Although that might change this year I’m also making my first Christmas quilt, so it might end up in a three way tie. Looks like another great book I’m going to have to own.
Sue H says

Elaine Satterfield says
That would be pinnies! ?
Pat S says
I love to make pot holders as gifts. Everyone can use a fresh set in their kitchen. It is something we all love to receive because we never think to replace them ourselves! Me included!
Cindy Whittaker says
I love making ornaments! Quick to make and fun to give away. The book looks amazing!
Bonnie May says
Definitely the stockings! My four grandkids are always expecting quilts for Christmas so this would surprise them. I love the laapquilts also, the colors are so soft. Love them all!!
I love making tree ornaments and wall hangings for Christmas!
That’s a hard question – a toss up between ornaments and stockings! You can never have too many ornaments and mini stockings are perfect for small treats and gift cards.
I’m working on 2 Christmas quilts and a dozen stockings:)

A favorite for years has been making Christmas ornaments.
Debbie Totten says
I am a pincushion girl. I definitely will be making those. I also loved your lap quilt. I think I will use my Christmas collection of your fabrics with this pattern.
Love to see the ornaments come out again. The other tradition is leaving the tree up as long as possible to offset the dark winter nights.
Linda Douglas says
LOVE TO MAKE QUILTED GIFT BAGS FOR OUR FRIENDS+FAMILY GIFTS! THANKS FOR SHARING !
Forgot to say – favorite Christmas item to make, hands down, is my Mother and Grandmother’s Chocolate Walnut Dollar cookie recipe.

I always need to make more stockings—it seems that my family likes to take them home after Christmas and I never see them again!!!

Today I decided I needed another pinny and these look like they are easy. I love making sewing related gifts.
Misti Creach says
I love to make old fashioned peanut brittle on the stove using a candy thermometer for Christmas gifts. 🙂
Kay Eisaman says
I am always trying to learn new sewing techniques using my computerized sewing machine. So as this new holiday season comes on everyone gets something “home made ” . So sometimes it is a simple runner, mug rugs of individual recipient’s taste pillows ,wall hangings and a throw for someone. I just like learning what all my new machine can do, others are the ones who receive the projects. Thanks, enjoying the day with thread & fabric .
Gwyn Welliver says
I do not have a lot of time to sew right now. My favorite food to make for Christmas is white fruit cake with lots of dried fruit. I make a fantastic fruit cake. 🙂
Lisa Walsh says
I love to sew an ornament every Christmas for family and friends!

This book looks delightful! I, too, could find many projects to make inside the covers of this new book. Well, I think my favorite Christmas item to make is Christmas stockings ( I seem to get a new grandchild each year, so I make a new Christmas stocking every year).
Kaye Mattson says
My favorite thing to make for Christmas is a stocking! I have made one for each member of our family and they are all different!
