Fair Isle Christmas Quilt


Are you ready to get started on your holiday sewing? If so, I’ve got a fun new Christmas pattern for you! And it’s even on sale, so you can kick off the season with a bargain.

This quilt was inspired by cozy Nordic sweaters—I saw some Fair Isle knitting patterns on Pinterest a few months back, and I just knew that look had to make its way into a quilt! At first I was just playing around with the design, but eventually I decided it was so cute that it had to get the full pattern treatment. : )

I think this quilt is especially fun to make because it has several different blocks in it—including the pixelated reindeer! But the really nice thing is that it’s almost entirely strip-pieced, which makes it come together so much more quickly than you might think for something this elaborate. It’s all pretty basic piecing. However, I will warn you that there is a lot of cutting and a lot of different pieced units that come together in the end, so it does require some organization. : )

Of course, as is my tradition, this week I’m offering the PDF pattern at its lowest price ever. Pick it up now while it’s a bargain, and get that holiday sewing started!

Oh, and one more fun thing: I have a coordinating bonus pillow tutorial now available on weallsew.com, Bernina USA’s blog. This free tutorial shows you how to make a variation on the Poinsettia block from this quilt—which means the pillow also happens to coordinate very nicely with the quilt! Head over to Bernina’s blog to learn how to make the pillow.

    This is so adorable. I already bought the pattern and if I had the red/pink fabric I'd totally start making it right now. It's the first pattern I've bought from you and I love your instructions – so clearly written and the shortcuts are perfect.

    Oh my gosh, Lee! I was intrigued by the sneak peeks you have been posted, but seeing the whole quilt really blows me away. This is the most fun looking Christmas quilt I've seen in a LONG time.
