Many Will be Wonderful in Non-Seasonal Projects Too!
A charming block depicting a mug is one of several beautiful blocks available as part of Moda Bakeshop’s “Countdown to Christmas” extravaganza. For 2018, a variety of designers created blocks in red and white that can be used in any project you have in mind.
Instructions were provided after Christmas for setting ideas for a quilt made from the year’s blocks. Learn more about the Countdown here.
The mug block is just one of several blocks that can be used for more than a holiday quilt. Since each block includes instructions for two sizes, 6″ and 12″, they can be incorporated in many different types of projects. Plus, they will be wonderful in non-holiday colors, as well.
The mug block was designed by Mona Phelps.
A second block also caught our eye as well. This charming horse can be used in baby quilts and more. Embellish solid fabric with embroidery if you wish, using the template found here, or choose a pretty print. It was designed by Nicola Dodd.
Of the more traditional blocks the Wreath Star designed by Jen Daly is one of our favorites. While it’s stunning in red and white we can easily imagine it in other color combinations.
There are several other wonderful blocks to choose from several years of Christmas Countdowns. And they’re all free. Click here to scroll through all of the “Christmas Countdown” block patterns.
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!
