Handmade Christmas Decorations & Holiday Décor: 5 Free Christmas Quilting Patterns

Long before snowflakes fall, many quilters start planning their Christmas quilting projects—if only in their heads. From cutting fabric for quilted Christmas ornaments to researching tree skirt patterns, decking the halls—and the kitchen and dining room—with Christmas quilting and sewing designs is one of the signs of the holiday season.

Handmade Christmas decorations and décor instantly add a festive look to any room in the house. Christmas table runners perk up a plain tablecloth and fit easily on a buffet. A holiday-theme quilted fireplace screen adds coziness (and warms up a non-working fireplace). How about a Christmas tree skirt pattern to match? Kitchen prep and serving are made merrier with bright fabrics on easy-to-make holiday hot pads. And what’s more fun than creating handmade Christmas ornaments from strips of fabric scraps? Download all five Christmas quilting patterns now and start creating for the holidays today.
