How about a Free Christmas pattern that shows traditional Holiday symbols but with easy blocks and a modern look to it? Read on.

This is the quilt I designed for the Yuletide Cheer fabric collection by Laura Stone for Studioe Fabrics. It measures 80″ x 97″ and the blocks finish at 16″. Large blocks? Yes! These translate into fast construction because the patches come together quickly.
Look at some of the ones I used in my design:
The fabrics in this collection are so much fun and remind me of Christmases with my boys when they were little. The prints include everything we love about the Holiday season and I wanted to showcase them in a way we could easily see them, without cutting them into tiny pieces.
I do know that we have lots of Christmas fabrics in our stash from Christmas past… So, you could also try this Christmas pattern with your scraps: make the trees with varying greens, the stars of different colors (be sure to have lots of contrast between its points and its center), and go crazy on the presents but, again, use a contrasting solid fabric for the ribbons.
The tall trees, the stars, and the presents were perfect to show the prints in this free Christmas pattern. As you can see, only beginner quilter skills are required so if you are looking for a pattern you can make as your first project, this might be the one. You could also try my Formal Attire quilt as the blocks are very simple and the overall result is fantastic.
I had a great time playing with these fabrics… and I am sure you will, too. It is never too early to start getting ready for Christmas, so look for this fabric collection at your local quilt store.
