Christmas Two by Four Quilt

Thursday, December 5, 2019


Happy Thursday! I'm excited to share my finished Christmas quilt today!

My new quilt happens to match the pillow I made a couple years ago. See more of that project here: Patchwork Christmas Projects


I started working on this quilt last year before the holidays. I had just finished my tree skirt and my stocks and was on a holiday sewing roll. I pretty quickly landed on using the two by four quilt tutorial by Ashley of Film in the Fridge. I started cutting all my Christmas fabrics into strips, but only got about halfway through the cutting before I had to stop. Too many gifts to make! Fast forward to this Fall when I picked it back up!


I didn't have a huge stash of Christmas fabrics, so I used a little bit of everything. It's based around leftovers from a bundle of Tinsel* by Cotton & Steel. I added in prints from their other holiday collections, plus an assortment of prints that aren't holiday, but coordinate.


Once I really got going, this quilt came together fast! I do love how many different prints ended up in this quilt. I made 56 blocks, it's approximately 60"x80".


I kept the quilting simple, my favorite diagonal lines! Nothing fancy, but I enjoy it.


In October I picked up yardage of this starry print from Daisy Chain* by Annabel Wrigley for the backing. I love how festive it feels alongside other holiday prints. It's bound up in a red-orange print from my stash.


We got our first real snow of the season early this week, so I took full advantage of the fresh snow for a few photos before I shoveled the driveway. So happy to finish this quilt, we've already been enjoying it!

Happy Quilting!
