INSIDE: Quilting beginners will love this roundup of The Best Quick & Easy Christmas Quilt Patterns.
I love the idea of making Christmas decorations because these are the things that families treasure and pass down through the generations. When I started looking at Christmas Quilt Patterns I found so many ideas it was difficult to sort through. I decided to narrow it down to simple projects that most of you could tackle in a weekend.
I should have written this in July because that’s when most people start their Christmas quilts. Well, maybe a few people think about it briefly, then they go on vacation, ready kids for back-to-school, and get on with life.
When September rolls around, that Christmas quilt you’ve been thinking about making suddenly seems like an impossibility. Or maybe not.
A Christmas quilt project doesn’t need to take over your life for months. There exists plenty of simple quilts that are fast and easy, leaving you time to display throughout the holidays. I’ve carefully collected a few quilt patterns with simple designs that aren’t difficult to make.
1. Applique + QAYG = Table Runner
Last year I designed a simple Christmas Applique Set for fast and easy projects. For one of my quilts, I made this table runner using the Quilt As You Go method. It was one of the easiest quilting projects I’ve ever completed. If you can sew a straight stitch, you can make this quilt!
2. Coasters, Pot Holders, and More
These designs are from a book called Christmas All Through the House. (affiliate) It’s full of simple projects that will make your home festive throughout the holidays.
3. Make a Moose Mug Rug
Ya’ know I love applique and an adorable Christmas Antler Mug Rug would make a great gift for a teacher or friend. (affiliate)
4. Scrappy Quilted Stockings
If you want something quick and easy, try a project that uses up scraps and turns them into something useful like these Scrappy Quilted Stockings.
5. Christmas Forest Quilt
Simple strips and triangles make a perfect beginner Modern Christmas Quilt. (affiliate)
6. Wreath Quilt
Why not make an indoor wreath using this Merry Wreath Mini Quilt Pattern! (affiliate)
7. Table Topper
A simple table topper can add a festive touch to any room. By using half square trianges, this pattern will go together in a snap.
8. Blocks, Strips, and Applique
If you’re wanting to make a lap quilt, this one looks fast and easy with all of its blocks, strips, and applique.
9. Quilt a Pillow
Quilted Christmas pillows are a quick way to add a quilty touch to holiday decorations.
10. Winter Blues
This is the kind of “winter blues” I like to have around. Of course, this wall hanging quilt would look awesome in a red and green pallet, too!
These quilts are a great jumping off place for you to get started. Think about how much time you have to spend on a project and dive in, feet first. You’ll be so glad you did.
For more inspiration I’ve created a Christmas Quilting Idea Pinterest board.
