Festivity Christmas Quilt

This is a quilt I made years ago using the paper piecing method. I remember that a website called Paper Panache offered a free pattern for the quilt which I promptly printed off. I didn't really have any idea how to paper piece, but quickly worked it out and enjoyed seeing the little blocks come together. While I love the nine centre blocks, my favourite part of the quilt is the border of Christmas lights that surround the nine blocks. I didn't buy any fabric for this quilt (no funds!), but used only what I had on hand at the time. I think this is why the quilt features blue quite prominently!

The wreath and the Christmas tree are embellished with Christmas buttons. The backing is a textured fabric that I remember was a real pain to sew with!

Backing fabric with chunky 'painted' stars!
I named this quilt 'Festivity' and have entered it into a little competition at Quilting Gallery. I wouldn't mind a bit if you voted for it!


  1. Cute! I, too, like your Christmas lights border.

  2. What a fun quilt!! I love the Christmas lights border, so clever!

    1. Thanks (though I can't take credit for the pattern!)!
