It’s Never Too Early to Begin Christmas Projects!

The way time flies, the season will be here all too soon.  We’ve collected 6 outstanding Christmas quilt patterns to help you get the creative juices rolling. Best of all, these patterns are all free.

While most of these quilting projects are displayed in traditional red and green, vary the colors to suit your holiday decor. Purple and silver, red and gold … color options are limited only by your imagination! Whether you prefer paper piecing, patchwork or applique, you’re likely to find something here that you like.


George Bailey Star Block

Named after the beloved character of the movie It’s A Wonderful Life, this block from Erick Homemade can be used in many ways. Make one block and turn it into a mini wall hanging or use it on a table, on a tote bag or even in a picture frame. Make several and set them together, with or without dividing sashes, into a table runner or quilt.

The block is 12″ and can be made from scraps.

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!
