Finished - Snuggly Christmas Sampler Quilt

I have made many quilts in the eight years I've been quilting (a list I have decided to compile this winter) but remarkably few Christmas quilts.  Quite shocking considering my love of the holiday.  Fear not, I am on a corrective path with much support and inspiration from Michelle From Bolt to Beauty.  

A few years ago I started to make Christmas themed blocks with no plan in mind.  Those of you who have been hanging around here for a while will remember our family's love of all things Peanuts and won't be surprised that I had Charlie Brown Christmas fleece in my fabric collection. 

One silver lining of our isolated Thanksgiving week was time for sewing.  It seemed like the perfect time to put those miscellaneous quilt blocks to work.  The result: a super soft snuggly quilt for my grandson Levi.

With the fleece, cotton batting and minimal quilting this is a very soft quilt.  

Unfortunately, I can't remember or find the source for the two blocks that look like gifts (please let me know if you recognize them and I will update this post) but here are the sources for the other blocks:

This is a perfect example of a not-so-perfect quilt that is overstuffed with love.

Keep smiling,



  1. I'm always so happy to see a new blog post from you in my feedly list. This quilt looks like the kind to be a favorite for years for your grandson. Best wishes for your holiday season...

  2. You did a great job putting these pattern blocks together..such a darling
    quilt...I love it. I am on the lookout for a nice 8.5" block to serve as a Medallion center for some new flying geese blocks...

  3. What a nice Christmas quilt! You did a good job choosing a variety of blocks, and the snuggly softness of fleece is perfect. I'm sure your grandson will love it. Good for you to be keeping track of only eight years of quiltmaking. I wouldn't know where to begin to track 44 years of quiltmaking!


How nice of you to take the time to comment!
