Christmas Wreath - FREE Quilt Block

Tuesday, November 3, 2020

'Tis the season to start planning for Christmas! This month's Quilt Block Mania theme is Winter Celebrations! Dozens of designers are sharing FREE quilt block patterns for you to sew!

I created a FREE pattern for a Christmas wreath! Have you seen those fun and colorful wreaths made from Christmas ball ornaments?? This is exactly the inspiration behind this quilty version!

The Christmas wreath block uses raw-edge applique, and is made very quickly with the help of an AccuQuilt Circles die if you have one!

The Christmas wreath block would be a great addition to any Christmas themed quilt, though wouldn't a Christmas quilt of blocks just made with circles be really fun?!? I'm going to have to think on that one, because I like how it looks in my mind! Or maybe just quilt this one up and hang a quilted wreath on your front door!

For my sample block, I picked my favorite Christmas palette! Red, lime green, turquoise, and hot pink! (I used that same color combo on this quilt!)

My two-year-old couldn't resist helping me cut out the circles!

It took him less than five minutes to have enough circles cut!

I used a lid to a round box that I have, but a dinner plate would be just as good! I traced it with my favorite air erasable pen. The marks go away after just an hour or so!

After putting all the circles on, I used matching Aurifil 50wt thread to stitch them down. It was very fast to do with my free-motion foot!

To applique the bow, I used a thread darker than my fabric pieces so that the color would help outline the pieces and make them show up a bit better.
