Do I have any Christmas gifts bought? Nope. Have I started decorating the house? Absolutely not.
Am I ready for Christmas to be here? In my heart, yes 100%! Am I completely in love with classic and nostalgic Christmas-inspired quilts? Also yes!
Which is why I decided to create Christmas mockups for all of my existing patterns!
Now is definitely the time to get started on a Christmas quilt (or two) before the crazy rush of the holidays truly starts! If you’re wanting to make a festive quilt to add to your home decor or to put under the tree as a cozy gift, hopefully the mockups below can give you a bit of inspiration.
I love how merry and bright this collection looks when all of the mockups are placed together! I went all in with a very classic Christmas colour palette using combinations of the following 21 Kona colours:
- Pearl Pink
- Chinese Red
- Old Green
- Hunter Green
Feel free to customize the colours and fabrics as you wish for your own quilt, but hopefully this list gives you a good start!
Here’s a closer look at all of them:
I also thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of the Christmas and holiday-inspired quilts I’ve made in the past!
Home Street Quilt
When I released the Home Street Quilt in December of 2021, I just couldn’t resist making a throw using Christmas prints! All of the fabrics are from Rifle Paper’s gorgeous Holiday Classics Collection:
- Mistletoe in Red
- Partridge Metallic in Evergreen
- Fir Trees in Linen
- Holiday Lights Metallic in Cream
- Mistletoe in Evergreen
I chose Poinsettia in Evergreen for the backing and Festive Strip Metallic for the binding, both from the same collection! I wanted to keep the background simple and beautiful, so I used Kona Snow.
I sent this one off to Ma Tante Quilting to be long arm quilted with the coziest Cable Knit Pantograph!
Birch Point Quilt
When I was making the Birch Point Quilt samples in July of 2020, I thought it would be fun to make a “Christmas in July” version! I used the newly released (at the time) Figo Fabrics Christmas line by Lemonni called Polar Magic.
Spruce Woods Quilt
In late 2018, I collaborated with Kate & Birdie, a local Winnipeg fabric designer for Moda Fabrics! She had just launched a new fabric line called “True North”, so I created a Spruce Woods Quilt to showcase the adorable Canadian fabric. The red, white, plaid and woodsy-themed prints really make this a Christmas-feeling quilt!
Green has always been one of my favourite colours to work with. Needless to say, I have a lot of green quilts! Here are a few that could easily pass as Christmas quilts:
Pine Falls Quilt was actually my first official pattern! This green wall hanging was made using:
I made this green Churchill Quilt wall hanging for my bathroom many years ago using reclaimed cotton. I used the same fabric for a Pine Falls version as well!
For this Riding Mountain Quilt wall hanging, I used Kona Cotton in:
Another wall hanging in TBS “classic” greens! This Star Lake Quilt uses similar colours to the Riding Mountain Quilt above. Here are the Kona colours I used:
I made this throw-size Home Street Quilt in all “classic” TBS greens...but with a twist! This was the first time I ever used Green Tea in any of my green quilts and I love how it turned out. Here are all the Kona colours I used:
I made this Grand Beach Quilt in some very classic Blanket Statement greens and it may just be one of my favourites to date! Even though these pictures were taken on the beach, it can very easily pass for a Christmas quilt.
Cue Taylor Swift's "Snow on the Beach" song here!
In 2019, I was lucky enough to test Penelope Handmade’s Boulted 2.0 Quilt, which is a variation on her original Boulted Quilt pattern! I couldn’t help myself and made a 20” x 20” pillow in all Kona greens:
If you make your own Christmas quilt using a TBS pattern, don’t forget to use the #blanketstatementpatterns hashtag. I’d love to see what holiday ideas you come up with and you just might get featured on my social media and/or newsletter!
