Welcome back to our Best Christmas Quilts 2013 Giveaway! Today is Day 3 and we have big plans in store. There will be six winners selected for today’s prizes, so sit back, relax, and get ready to take a look at more Christmas patterns and enter to win some free fabric!
If you haven’t already heard, we’re having a giveaway each day this week to promote our newest special issue, Best Christmas Quilts 2013. This pattern magazine is full of holiday projects for quilters of all skill levels, whether you’re looking to challenge yourself with new techniques or you’re just testing the quilting waters, this issue has everything you need. For just $9.99 you can get Best Christmas Quilts 2013 at your local quilt shop, bookstore, newsstand or online at Quilt and Sew Shop.
One of the first things you’ll find in this issue is an article featuring various panels of fabric. If you’re pressed for time this holiday season, these panels will become your best friend. With so many varieties available, you’ll be able to whip up your personalized project in no time.
Christmas Morning is a fun art quilt that was inspired by the natural beauty of the season. Frieda Anderson does all the cutting freehand and trims each piece of fabric as she goes along. This is a great project to play around with improvisational piecing, which means your art quilt will be similar but completely unique to you.
You’ll like the stylish touch this classy quilt will add to your holiday décor, and the quick hourglass unit piecing will have you falling in love when the wreaths come together in a snap. Designed and made by Bev Getschel using The Giving Quilt collection by Red Rooster, Welcoming Wreaths is the perfect quilt to give as a gift or use in your own home.
Start a new family tradition with Jen Daly’s O Christmas Tree advent calendar. This ingenious project has a pocket on the back to hold the little ornaments, star and presents until you add them to the tree one-by-one as you await the big holiday.
We noticed many of you have been curious about the quilt on the cover of Best Christmas Quilts 2013. The delightful holly leaves and checkerboard blocks combine perfectly with fabrics from Robyn Pandolph Home Essentials for RJR. Update your next holiday quilt using a mix of patchwork and applique like Ramona Sorensen’s Holly & Vine pattern.
Hopefully you’ve been enjoying a peek inside the pages of this great issue. Now, it’s time for today’s prizes.
