This quilt looks great in red and green for Christmas but would also be perfect in other complementary colour schemes for year round quilts.
Hot cocoa is trending right now in a huge way so I designed these cute little appliqué hot cocoa mugs with hearts on them to add to the quilt if you wish. Inside the PDF file there are two additional quilt layout diagrams with different placement options for the mugs.
I drew the mugs in EQ7 (quilt design software) and I love how they turned out! The templates are included in the pattern.
I made my test blocks into a cute runner for my hot cocoa bar that I set up on the top of my deep freeze. Hot cocoa bars are the in thing right now according to my kids who have been thoroughly enjoying ours.
Another idea is so sew a bed runner for the foot of a bed at the holidays. Just add a few more blocks to the runner above.
I got extremely motivated and pieced, basted, quilted and bound this quilt all in one day! (Yes, I was very tired afterwards.) I have a system down pat for these pixel heart quilts now and I use the knee lift lever on my sewing machines to help speed things up. It actually does save time.
I was wanting to sew a Halloween quilt but couldn’t afford to buy fabric. I started looking through my “holiday fabrics” basket and was surprised to discover that I had enough Halloween prints for a whole quilt!
I was very pleased that I was able to bust quite a bit of my stash. 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope your Halloween preparations are going well.
I finished a quilt yesterday! This one was for a custom order from my Etsy shop. The customer who ordered it said it is for a gift for a new family coming to Canada from Syria. What an amazing welcome gift!
