Evergreen Mystery Quilt and Stitch Along - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Evergreen Mystery Quilt and Stitch Along

We can’t wait to unwrap this new quilt along! Beginning today, July 11, we are releasing a FREE Evergreen quilt and cross stitch pattern each week for five weeks. Kimberly will guide you in sewing this quilt over on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel, so if you’re new to quilting, this is a great chance to start!

Each Tuesday from July 11-August 8, we will release a video tutorial on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel with a FREE quilt block pattern and with a FREE cross stitch pattern. Join Kimberly in cutting, stitching, and sewing a new block each week!

Evergreen Quilt

The Evergreen Quilt makes the perfect holiday wall hanging since it finishes at 31.5” x 37.5”. We are sewing ours in Favorite Things by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics! We simply had to use this collection when we saw the bright and beautiful seasonal colors.

To see all the supplies for this sew along head to the Evergreen supplies page.

To sew up this quilt in your favorite Christmas fabrics, download the fabric requirements.

Evergreen Cross Stitch

The Evergreen Cross Stitch piece will be stitched in sections as we reveal a new portion of the pattern each week on the Evergreen Sew Along page. Our Christmas-themed mystery quilt inspired this design, so give this pattern a go if you want a matching set.

The Evergreen Cross Stitch measures 109w x 109h, finishing as a 7.875” square when stitched on 14 count Aida! If you’re working with a different cloth, try using our free Cross Stitch Calculator to find your desired size.

The floss and cloth you choose are up to you, but we stitched ours with the Evergreen Classic Colorworks Thread Pack on Natural 14 Count Aida by Wichelt. Some other seasonal supplies we’d recommend include the Festively Gift Wrapped Enamel Needle MinderEnchanted Ornament Enamel Charm, and the Berry Mad for Plaid Project bag.

We will release weekly video tutorials on our Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel along with the FREE quilt block and cross stitch patterns on the Evergreen Sew Along Page each Tuesday in July and the start of August. Mark these dates in your calendars for whichever project you’re making with us!

  6. I am working on the quilting Evergreen Mystery. I have all five downloads, however, where is the download for the presents at the bottom like the cross stitch mystery had? Am I not reading the instructions corectly? Thank you. Kim
