Dress Your Tree with Patchwork Christmas Decorations |
A Candy Cane Stripe Border Adds Sparkle to These Mini Quilts!
If you’re looking for a quick holiday quilting project, we think you’ll love these little quilted ornaments. They’re so easy that you can quickly make several for yourself and for gifts.
Have fun going through your scraps and pulling out cheery fabrics for this project. We love the happy look provided by the candy cane stripe fabric binding and medium scale prints used in the ornament made by designer Messy Jesse. However, these patchwork ornaments will be lovely with whatever fabrics you choose.
The finished ornaments are about 4.5″ in height and width. They’ll look fabulous on a medium to large Christmas tree. Or, hang several together in a grouping on a wall. You could even sew several stars together and make a small wall quilt.
The piecing is simple and won’t take long at all. Sewing together several of these little quilts will be a breeze!
Note that the tutorial refers to “wadding”. That’s the British term for quilt batting.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
