I absolutely love the summertime fun of taking day trips to the beach, tending to healthy flowers in the garden, and throwing outdoor BBQ parties. Yet, I also love Christmas cookies, bright red poinsettias, and making handmade quilted gifts for loved ones. Fortunately, I don’t have to pick between my favorite season and holiday — I can just combine them by making wonderfully festive Christmas in July quilt projects!
Although the holidays aren’t for another 6 months, all of the editors FaveQuilts are already getting ready for this year’s Christmas quilting projects. Check out our list of our most loved decorative Christmas quilts that you need to get started on today.
Christmas Quilt Kitchen Decor
Creating your own Christmas-themed quilts for the kitchen is not only an easy way to save money, but also an easy way to add a burst of cheerful festivity to your home! For example, this pattern idea for a Christmas Tree Hot Pad will come in handy when it’s time to take a Christmas ham or Christmas casserole out of the oven. If you have a few green and red layer cake fabrics handy, you can quickly piece together the multi-hued Christmas Joy Centerpiece to add a cute quilted Christmas decoration to any kitchen counter or dining room table. Personally, I like making minimalistic patterns for my quilted home decor; which is why I really love this extremely simple quilt pattern for this gorgeous Christmas Randot Table Runner.
Christmas Tree Quilt Decorations
While palm trees are currently thriving in this July heat, nothing gives you that Christmastime cheer like imagining a gorgeous, decked-out Christmas tree. Your family’s evergreen will really stand out this year if you start making your quilted Christmas decorations, like the Christmas in July Tree Skirt, before Santa comes to town! If you’re tired of overly tinseled trees, you’ll enjoy the simple, but stunningly classic pattern for the Starry Christmas Ball Ornament. Don’t forget to make personalized Christmas quilt patterns for your kids or grandkids with the Scrappy Christmas Tree Stocking.
Wall Hanging Quilts for Christmas
Don’t let the holidays sneak up on you — prepare yourself for the most wonderful time of the year by making an advent calendar quilt or a wallhanging Christmas quilt. Some of FaveQuilts‘ all-time favorite patterns include the Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar and the Merry Christmas Wallhanging. We also are pleased to bring you this NEW Christmas quilt pattern called the Christmas Tree Farm Wall Hanging, which features a whole forest of adorable and soft quilted evergreen pictures.
