Quilters Newsletter's Best Christmas Quilts Blog Tour

Welcome fellow quilters!

"On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love gave to me, three french hens..."

Ok, so it's not the 3rd day of Christmas, but it is the 3rd day of QN's 12 Days of Best Christmas Quilts blog tour and while I don't have french hens, I do have calling birds! 


And they are sew sweet - perfect for adorning your Christmas tree or to add a little something extra to a beautifully wrapped package!  The pattern for my quick and easy ornaments can be found on page 24 of Quilters Newsletter's special issue Best Christmas Quilts 2012.  Best Christmas Quilts 2012 is available now on newsstands and in bookstores and quilts shops.  It's also available through www.quiltandsewshop.com in both hardcopy and digital editions.

Also featured in Best Christmas Quilts 2012 are my Let it Snow table runner and pillow.


I actually made the pillow version of Let it Snow first as a Christmas gift for my mother.  When she opened her gift and started to laugh, I looked at the pillow and realized that I'd forgotten to give the snowmen arms.  I was horrified, but it turns out that she was laughing because she had also made a snowman pillow for me - go figure.  She didn't even notice that the snowmen didn't have arms!  Needless to say, they have arms now!

I loved making the snowman panels for the pillows (yes, I made one for me!) so much that I decided to adapt the pattern into a table runner, something that I could keep out not just for Christmas, but for the rest of winter as well.  Because of the hand work in the snowman panels, I decided to keep the patchwork in the center of the table runner simple.  I chose homespuns because I think they instantly convey warmth, but these projects would be equally charming in any fabric that suits your taste or decor.


Here's a close-up of one of the snowmen.  Isn't he cute!  I made him out of felted wool and appliquéd him to the background using a whipstitch.  Super simple and fast.  But you can use whatever material and appliqué method you prefer.  Change up the color of the hats, add whatever embellishments speak to you, and have fun -- just don't forget the arms!!

And now, the moment you've been waiting for (and thank you for your patience), your chance to win a fat quarter bundle and two panels from the Too Many Men collection from Red Rooster Fabrics.


Look close... closer... closer still... yes, that's right, snowman fabric!  If only I knew of a pattern for say a table runner or even a pillow to make with snowman fabric, hmmm. 

If you'd like a chance to win this adorable fabric and a copy of Best Christmas Quilts 2012 leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. MDT tonight (8/22/2012) by clicking on the word "comments" in the blue box below.  I will draw one name at random (just please make sure I have your email address).  Only one comment per person, please, and the contest is only open to those who haven't won something from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.

Enjoy the rest of the blog tour and good luck!

Thank you for all of your comments.  This contest is now closed.

  7. Oh my goodness! Those little birds are so precious and then those adorable snowmen...just looking at them makes me want to start decorating for Christmas! I am certainly going to try to create some of those cute little birds for my bird tree!!! Now is it will just turn cold, so I can snuggle up to the fire and sew the night away! :)

  8. Love the birds - both the cloth ones and the wood one. Red cardinals are big where I live but a little yellow and black is certainly acceptable! I think his/her name should be Chipper--not only because it causes one to be when looking at him/her but because it looks like he/she was chipped out of wood. Barb mizippipete@comcast.net

  14. The calling birds are wonderful. My daughters and I will certainly be making some for Christmas. The snowmen as terrific on the tablerunner and pillow sham. I have to admit that I have really started liking tablerunners and as I have made one for Thanksgiving and working on my Halloween one, your design seems like the perfect choice for Christmas and the winter season in general. I like things that can carry through an entire season as your snowmen certainly can. Thanks for your terrific designs.

Love your birds too....these I will have to make to give away as gifts! I think they will look just lovely tied on to wrapped Christmas packages too! Thank You for your beautiful designs!

  48. OMGosh what a very generous giveaway ... I would so love to be the lucky recipient of Red Rooster fabric -- my daughter and son-in-law are doing Snowman theme for their Christmas tree this year (last year was a mess because she was in a serious car accident on 18th of November -- Christmas just wasn't the same even though we did decorate, etc.) Any way I bend your ear too much. I love you work Jen and will definitely be getting my copy of the new mag.

  152. Funny how our minds turn to Christmas when the temperatures outside reach the triple digits. How about a snowman to cool us all off? Your patterns are just that "cool."

  153. Do I go to the store this evening to get the magazine or do I wait for you to draw my number so I could win a copy of the magazine? Winning the fabric would be cool too. I think I'd use your snowman to make an ornament - so I will definitely need the magazine. Thank you.

    ps--hope your drywall issues have settled
