It’s Great in Non-Seasonal Colors Too!
This beautiful quilt is perfect for the holidays or make it up in colors to enjoy all winter long. There are many examples that show how wonderful it is in any color theme.
In fact, there are so many lovely variations that it’s hard for us to choose just a few to showcase here. You’ll find lots of inspiration to spark your creativity here.
Play with color and be as creative or traditional as you want. When looking through the examples notice that some are two- or three-color themes and others use a wider variety of colors.

The quilt was originally presented by the Fat Quarter Shop as a Christmas in July Mystery Quilt. Four popular designers contributed blocks to the design. You’ll find the block patterns, construction videos, fabric requirements, and more at the following link.
Directions for finishing the quilt are found at the link below.
The completed quilt is 50.5″ square.
However, Edyta Sitar has created instructions for expanding the quilt to 70-1/2″ x 70-1/2″. That’s done by adding a border of stars around the outside of the quilt. Learn how that’s done here.

A piano key border is another lovely way to expand the size of the quilt. Or go ahead and create your own border design. You’ll find a lot of creative borders on the quilts showcased here. Or simply add border strips to achieve the size you want.

Also notice that many of the quilters embellished the centers of their quilts with additional piecing, fussy cut motifs, or an accent color.

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.
