Kim-DiehlChristmas in May? Absolutely! If you’re a quiltmaker and you’d like to wrap yourself (and your family) in a little handmade goodness when the snow begins to fly, now is the PERFECT time to start planning, dreaming, and stitching for the holidays.

Simple Christmas Tidings is such a labor of love and so very special to me, because it gave me the opportunity to design and stitch a huge variety of quilts and projects using blocks and motifs loved by generations of quilters. And what an honor to share some of my favorite holiday recipes, decorating tips, and ideas that make my home sparkle during the chilliest of winter days, as well as traditions I’ve enjoyed with my family through the years.

My very favorite holiday quilts and projects are those that don’t scream “Christmas!,” because I’m able to use and display them for the entire season (or even longer), not just for the holidays. With this in mind, you’ll find tons of classic patchwork and appliqué designs, richly hued colors in both cotton prints and wooly fabrics, and a huge variety of projects from big to small that use lots of easy techniques.

My mother used to tell me that good things come in small packages, and she was so right! It feels incredibly good to start AND finish quick little projects, and Christmas Baubles are just the thing for a dose of instant gratification. Quick-to-stitch wooly snowmen and penny ornaments, a sprinkling of fabric yo-yos, and patchwork stars can be whipped up in a jiffy. Best of all, they can be tied onto doorknobs and handles for a dollop of holiday cheer all through the house, or they can be shared with special people in your life when you tie them onto gift bags and packages. Everyone loves receiving a little homemade cheer!
