Christmas Wall Quilt / Wall Hanging

Create this lovely country style quilt in one weekend and decorate your walls with it for the holidays. The reindeer, mitten, stocking, tree, sled and star motifs are typical seasonal favorites and the quilt is made using only 3 colors of patchwork fabric. Of course, would it not be wonderful to have this as a bed quilt? Just continue making more blocks until you have enough to cover a bed and assemble as you would for the wall hanging (without the rod).

Instructions:

Cut the fabric:

- Fabric “A” - 30 x 30 blocks
- Fabric “B” - 12 pieces of 4 x 28 cm strips for the block borders
- Fabric “C” - 12 strips measuring 4 x 28 cm for the block borders, 1 strip measuring 5 cm x 240 cm for the bias (border)
                     and approximately a 75 x 52 piece for the backside*

- Batting - approximately a 75 x 52 cm piece*

- Scrap Pieces in all 3 colors for the appliques

* After sewing the 6 blocks together and ironing them, measure the length and width to get the exact size you need for the backside and for the batting!

The quilt is made very similar to this Spring Butterfly Quilt and this Easter Patchwork Quilt. The illustrated tutorials below show you the steps to making the butterfly quilt. Follow the instructions, but use the Christmas fabric and motifs instead of the recommended ones in the tutorial.

Butterfly Quilt Wall Hanging 1

Cut 6 beige blocks 30 cm x 30 in size. Follow the tutorial here for the spring quilt >>> Step 1 - Creating the Appliques and Preparing the Blocks and replace the blocks and applications with these from this Christmas quilt.

 

 

Butterfly Quilt Wall Hanging 2

Now you will want to assemble the blocks. Follow the tutorial here >>> Step 2 - Sewing the Blocks Together

 

 

Butterfly Quilt Wall Hanging 3

Now it is time for the final step >>> Step 3 - Adding the Binding, Stitching the Appliques and Adding the Hanging Loops

 

 

We added a rod to hanging the quilt instead of loops. To do this, sew the rod inside of the bias at the top before hand closing it and glue a wooden ball to each side.
