More Great Christmas Quilting Projects to Start Now

Each of these free Christmas quilt patterns is easy to adapt to a different type of project. Select one square or motif (and adjust the size on a copier if need be), and make a throw pillow, mug rug, table mat or mini wall hanging. Put several squares together and make a table runner. Or, adapt any of them into a full sized quilt. Or mix them up. The paper pieced snowflake would look great alternated with appliqued mittens (using coordinated fabrics, of course!).

Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher

Julie at The Crafty Quilter provides this tutorial for a charming mini quilt that can be used under that plate of cookies for Santa. This project has many other uses over the holidays, as well. Hang it on a wall, use it in the center of the table, place it on top of a basket of rolls to keep them warm … well, you’re sure to think up a number of ways to display this charming piece!

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).
