Christmas Quilts

One of my customers was in recently mentioning that the 'in' colours for Christmas this year in London were "Red & White'. As I had just received in some wonderful red fabrics I decided to create something fun for Christmas. I drew up a 'brush stroke' Christmas tree and translated that into fabric. I used a fused fat quarter to cut out the Christmas Tree, very carefully, so I got a positive and a negative shape. Therefore I was able to make 2 quilts. Here they are -
This was the first one to which I added a star, a pot and a border. Doesn't it look 'fresh' and lovely.
Then I used the fat quarter from which I had cut the tree shape to make a second tree quilt as below, still need to add a few finishing details to this one.

I hope to have the pattern for this Tree Quilt available within the next week and I can make up kits as well.
Give me an email if you are interested. Feel free to make a comment


  1. Dianne, the reverse one could probably be made like an Advent Tree! Love the curved edge.

  2. This is such a cool idea - love them :-)

  3. Thanks Lynette & Erilyn.
    I had fun making these funky style Christmas Tree quilts. I might think about the advent idea, thanks E. Don't the red and white colurs pop together?
