Hello quilters! It is an exciting week at Fat Quarter Shop! Our regularly scheduled Deck-ade the Halls post was postponed due to a special announcement. We started a new FREE pattern series called Shortcut Quilts and kicked it off with a Jelly Roll Quilt! Find out more about the Jelly Roll Jam in our post from yesterday. Now, we are wrapping up the Deck-ade the Halls quilt along. We are sad to see this fun series come to an end, but hope you had fun celebrating our 10 year anniversary with us!
Today, end the Deck-ade the Halls quilt with the Finishing Pattern. Download the FREE pattern and finish up this fun novelty Christmas quilt. To set this quilt, Jocelyn spaced the blocks in interesting ways, giving the quilt a jumbled look. Some blocks are straight set, like Trim the Tree and Holiday Homecoming, and some are offset, like Vintage Ornaments. And to round it out, we included a white inner border, a middle border of the grunge red found throughout the quilt, and a fun, printed outer border.
In our instructional video, Kimberly will show you her unique method for cutting and attaching borders. You will definitely learn something new and you just might pick up this new technique!
The full set of patterns, printed in full color, is now available for purchase, but you can still download the patterns for free and print them out at home. However you choose, we hope you have fun making the Deck-ade the Halls quilt! These blocks are so versatile and can easily be made into a festive table topper or wall hanging. Be creative and use Deck-ade the Halls in your Christmas decorating.
Thank you to everyone who has sewn along with us! We loved seeing your progress on Flickr. It has been so great to celebrate the past 10 years with you, and here’s to 10 more!
