Christmas Quilt & Table Runner

We have made very few Christmas quilts in the shop as they often seem too much work for a short season. When we discovered the Pinata quilt pattern, things changed.

You can have this one finished and ready long before the Holidays get here. Our kit uses traditional Christmas prints with Moda’s primitive muslin as the background. There is just one block to make in this quilt!

If you have your own collection of Christmas prints and wondered what to do, then the pattern might be all you need. We did make our quilt larger than the pattern. It was to be a 50″ x 60″ quilt, but we have enough fabric in our kit to make the quilt 60″ x 70″ which seems to be a better size.

If a smaller project is in your plans, you might want to try the table runner shown above with the Pinata Quilt. The piecing is easy and it’s a great runner to showcase a focus fabric. The pattern, Waffle Time, has been around for years. Never seems to go out of style with all the great fabrics to showcase.

The fabrics we used in our runner are from the Poinsettia Plaza collection from Moda. If you love traditional Christmas with just a touch of the contemporary, you will enjoy this group.
