9 Holiday Quilting Projects to Deck the Halls!

9 Holiday Quilting Projects

The holiday season is upon us! This exciting time is full of projects and gift making. That’s why National Quilters Circle put together a list of nine projects that will help decorate your tree or fill your family’s stockings.

This season, we wanted to gather other quilters in the amazing online community and share their awesome projects with you. These creators have amazing ideas that every household needs around the holidays. Tutorials by Crazy Mom Quilts, The Crafty Quilter, Threadbare Creations, A Quilting Life, Diary of a Quilter, Glue Sticks, Swoodson Says, CKC Patterns, and Love Laugh Quilt.

Handmade for the holidays Christmas star blocks

1. Christmas Star Block

To start you off on a larger project, Rose of Threadbare Creations designed a block pattern to start the holidays right. It may not be ready by Christmas but working on it throughout the season will get you in a cheery mood! Tutorial here: Christmas Star Block Pattern

Patchwork bag

2. Patchwork Gift Bag

You can’t allow any piece of holiday fabric to waste when you won’t be using it for another whole year. So, Sherri from A Quilting Life uses the rest of her scraps to make a reusable gift bag. How clever! Tutorial here: Patchwork Gift Bag

Christmas hot pad

3. Christmas Hot Pad

As a thoughtful gift or a much-needed kitchen accessory, this festive hot pad is so cute! Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts uses holiday colored scraps to complete this project. Tutorial: A Simple Hot Pad Tutorial

Christmas pocket mug rug

4. Christmas Pocket Mug Rug

Chilly nights sitting by the fire with hot cocoa means we need lots and lots of mug rugs. The Crafty Quilter made a great Christmas pattern. Julie even allows a place to keep a cocoa packet! Tutorial here: Christmas Pocket Mug Rug

Quilted snowman ornaments

5. Quilted Ornaments

The best thing about these Quilted Ornaments is that you don’t need to use the sewing machine! They are easy enough for you to do while you watch a Christmas movie marathon. Tiffany from CKC Patterns has made them for multiple holidays and you can too! Tutorial here: Quilted Ornaments

Christmas stocking pattern

6. Cuffed Christmas Stocking

Where else to put holiday treats than in cute stockings? Brandy created a great pattern for creating your own stockings on her blog, Glue Sticks. It’ll be easy to make a few before Santa comes to fill them up! Tutorial here: Cuffed Christmas Stocking Pattern

Handmade quilted Christmas ornaments

7. Handmade Quilted Ornaments

These ornaments won’t be like any another ornament. The tutorial Stephanie created on her blog, Swoodson Says, allows you to be creative with your decorations! These ornaments will be just as unique as your family gathered around the tree. Tutorial here: Handmade Quilted Ornaments

Christmas tree quilt ornament

8. Mini Christmas Tree Ornament

During Christmas, you can never have too many ornaments. This mini Christmas tree pattern by Amy at Diary of a Quilter would be perfect on a pine garland above the fireplace. Tutorial here: Mini Christmas Tree Quilt Ornament Tutorial

Hexagon holiday centerpiece

9. Hexagon Holiday Centerpiece

Finally, bring the whole room together with a festive centerpiece tablecloth. Beth with Love Laugh Quilt makes one that would be perfect with a cookie jar or a poinsettia on top! Tutorial here: Hexagon Holiday Centerpiece
