It's the time of year to start thinking about your holiday projects. Riley Blake Christmas fabrics have been sent and I expect to receive them very soon. Here are a few free Christmas quilt projects from Riley Blake.

Even though it's only May....it's a great time to plan your Christmas quilt projects. Last year I made a really great quilt top, which I sold at Christmas Jul just days after I made it. It was a super sweet Flimsy. This year, I am making another one, and while I have the pattern drawn on the fusible web, I haven't picked out the fabrics yet. I love the red and white, but I don't have some of these fabrics this year. I am thinking about going with a blue and silver colorway, but I love the red and white too. Maybe I should do two. I will post what I do, so check back.
I used a combination of woven cotton and batik cottons to make this quilt. Both fabrics work for fusible appliqué.
The pattern comes from this wonderful book by Cheryl Almgren Taylor.
