If you are like me, you are wondering how Christmas got here so quickly. The weather turns cold and for some of you, snow arrives, then the seasonal colors of red and green appear everywhere. Its also a perfect time for sewing and quilting while you stay snuggled inside to stay warm. My newest quilt for the Quilt Dash online game is “Christmas Delight – Christmas Trees”, designed with a flurry of red and green with the yellow of candle light or fire flames. This pattern is free by joining the Quilt Dash dashing through a few online quilt shops to pick up the pattern pieces and instructions.
The Quilt Dash starts on December 13 and runs for two weeks to give you plenty of time to complete the dash. The online shops participating will have a great selection of quilt supplies and notions so you may find something for your Christmas stocking!
This quilt is approximately 55 1/2″ square and is appropriate for beginners to advanced quilters. I used the red, yellow and green fabrics from my “Celebrate” fabric collection from Quilting Treasures.
So, stay warm, enjoy the holiday festivities and try a little quilting!
