Stories from Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Marketing coordinator Mary Burns says: “I used rick-rack and wool scraps in my ‘Christmas Cracker’ table runner (top left). I tossed handfuls of both in the air and basically tacked them on where they landed! My ‘Snowman Stockings’ (top right) are made from thrifted wool coats. The buttons are from coats too, and the scarves are made from a skirt.

“I’ve been doing more handwork lately, and I wanted to make something that captured the peaceful quiet of a snowy forest. My ‘O Tannenbaum’ pillow (bottom left) will stay by the hearth for the winter. I designed the ‘Christmas Cookie Apron’ (bottom right) when my friend Tammy challenged our quilt group to make something from a tea towel. This one’s in holiday fabrics, but I’ve also made it in lime green for a cute spring apron.”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Designer Connor Chin’s mom, Diane, says: “My inspiration for this tulle tree skirt came from the whimsical fabric. I was given the fabric as a gift, and I knew I had to do something fun with it. Hope you like it!”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Senior customer-service representative Cornelia Gauger says: “Growing up with German traditions, I had a chocolate-filled advent calendar every year and so did my kids. Now we have a long-lasting advent calendar that we can fill with whatever we like!”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Editor in chief Mary Green says:
“I love the old-fashioned charm of handmade paper chains draping a Christmas tree. For me, the most appealing ones are those made from simple construction paper. This is the look I tried to re-create in my “Paper Chains” design (left). When I discovered how fast and fun English paper piecing is, I had fun playing with diamonds to create “Fireside Stars” (right). Machine quilter Krista Moser took one look at the blue background and immediately thought of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night.’ Her gorgeous swirls of quilting stitches added the perfect finishing touch.”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Director of sales and marketing Karen Johnson says: “I love all forms of appliqué—depending on my mood, I’ll turn edges under and stitch either by hand or machine. But sometimes I don’t want to go to that much trouble. The circles on my ‘Dotty for Christmas’ tree skirt are fused in place, and then straight-stitched ⅛" inside the raw edge. I love the texture after it’s washed.”

Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Copy editor Tiffany Mottet says: “I designed this wall hanging after the ‘snowcouple’ a friend built for my winter wedding. Snowball blocks seemed like the perfect fit, as did asking my grandmother—who witnessed that special day—to quilt it.”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Customer service manager Tracy Overturf says: “The inspiration for my ‘Festival of Lights’ runner comes from sitting at the dinner table during Hanukkah, with everyone wanting to light the candles. I thought how fun it would be to have a menorah as part of the table setting. Both of my kids can ‘light’ the candles, no matter which side of the table they’re sitting on.”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Author Liaison Cathy says: “A contemporary collection of Christmas prints for the ‘Diamond Mantel Cover’ (top left) made my vintage mantel from the ’50s shine again. A conversation with friends at a fundraising event was the inspiration for my ‘Pretty Party Purses’ (top right), which are small and elegant for holiday parties. And because all things Christmas must live at my house, the gift of a charm pack quickly turned into my ‘Holiday Delight’ table runner (bottom).”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place

Design manager Adrienne Smitke says: “A full-sized Christmas tree would be a bit overwhelming in my small apartment. This wall hanging (left) makes a great substitute and I love that I can use it year after year! I also love working with felt, and these little critter ornaments (right) were so fun and easy to make, I could have designed a dozen more. They make great stocking stuffers and gift toppers.”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Managing editor Karen Soltys says: “I love working with wool—for rug hooking and knitting, and yes, for sewing. I upcycled thrifted wool sweaters to make my ‘Naturally Neutral’ Christmas stocking (left). The sweater textures give the project a subtle crazy-quilt look. For my ‘Snowflake’ pillows (right), I juxtaposed cozy wool snowflakes with vibrant silk. Cutting snowflakes was fun and still is. Each one unique! I added beads for even more sparkle.”

From Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place
Content editor Jenny Wilding Cardon says: “I have a stash of Christmas quilts, but I wanted a quilt that I could display all winter long. So the idea for the frosty-hued ‘Snowflakes’ quilt (left) was born. ‘Ode to the Grinch’ (right) is inspired by my two boys. My hope is that our hearts will grow three sizes when we snuggle under the quilt to read How the Grinch Stole Christmas—just like the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes on Christmas day.”

While I am happy for them and their exciting adventure, I am sad they are moving so far away from me! So I want to send something with them to remember "home for the holidays". 🙂

I want to make her a special gift as a remembrance. He loved her very much and she has always been very special to me. I’m hoping that this gift will bring her comfort and put a smile on her face during the Christmas season.

    —Nancy on June 26, 2014
  • I have some wonderful friends who have helped me through some very trying times and I want to make them "special" quilts to show how much I appreciate them. I also want to make a wall hanging for my church.

    Cynthia Benedum on June 26, 2014
  • Hope to design a tablerunner with an embellished Swedish Dala horse on either end, and a Tomte– a sort of a helpful farm elf with a long grey beard — in the middle. Might make it into a wall hanging too if it works out!

    —Deb on June 26, 2014
  • Both teenage grand kids (new transplants to Washington State) are getting quilts with toile scenes of Colorado, their birth states.

    —Nancy Adams on June 26, 2014
  • Love to have my very own Christmas quilt. To get a head start on Christmas gifts is on my "list" this year. Winning this fabric would help! Thanks for the opportunity…

    —Sue K on June 26, 2014
  • Oops that was supposed to be nieces and nephews

    —Anne Startin on June 26, 2014
  • I usually make a quilt for at least one member of my family,since I have returned to teaching, I plan to make fun gifts for everyone. Some ideas are table runners, quilted micro bowls, quilted ornaments, and candle mats.

    —Sharon on June 26, 2014
  • Every year since my son was born I have made a special Christmas ornament for him. He is now 33 and still wants a "Mom" made ornament and I love the ones featured in Celebrate Christmas, I’m thinking the raccoon or hedgehog would be perfect!

    —Barb S. on June 26, 2014
  • Right now I’m making some scrappy christmas placemats for my family. And then there’ll be some quilts (my mum, my dad, my brother) and a few little things for friends perhaps some potholders.

    —Hildy on June 26, 2014
  • My younger sister just got diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and breast cancer. About 6 to 8 months of chemo and she just started. My mom and I are going to make her all sizes of quilts to keep her warm and festive and in comfort while she goes through her ordeal. We just started the fall quilts and haven’t started the Christmas quilts yet. We were also thinking if we had time to make some lap quilts for her fellow chemo partners this Christmas. Lots of work to do. But my sister has a great attitude and determined to fight!

    —Dana C on June 26, 2014
  • I love quilting magazines. Dream a lot but always make homemade gifts for Christmas which is my favorite holiday with family and friends. The patterns are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    —maggie on June 26, 2014
  • I will be making about 25 gifts…one for each family member. It is a tradition that I do every year; at least one handmade gift each! I also try and give our friends and close neighbors something. Last year was a set of 4 coasters. I love Christmas!

    —Pam Hall on June 26, 2014
  • j’ai l’intention cette année d’offrir des chemin de table comme cadeaux pour mes sœurs et bas de noël remplie de chose pour les enfants merci pour les milliers d’idés

  • I love Christmas! I’m trying to make a Christms table topper or runner for each member of my family this year. If I have time, I would also like to replace some Christmas stockings, too!

    —Sharon Gourlie on June 26, 2014
  • Wow, I do love Christmas. Every tear I produce oodles of gifts for friends and family as well as more decorating ideas for our home. I just finished my sons "fishy" quilt for his birthday next week so I’m ready and rarin’ to get started on Christmas gifts. Living in Canada means cold but beautiful white Christmases and a crackling fire, a beautiful tree and warm cuddly quilts is my idea of a perfect Christmas.

    —Bev Smith on June 26, 2014
  • I am planning to make mug rugs for all my children. I always make something for them.

    —Laura on June 26, 2014
  • wow great ideas!!!! For Christmas this year I have at least a king size on the plate as well as a t-shirt quilt and a twin using a special little boy panel. Then I have to make a special little boy(latest grand, two months old now) a Christmas stocking as the others have all received one. There will be other things tossed into the mix I am sure but that will keep me moving along….LOL!

    —Tonie Peterson on June 26, 2014
  • I plan to make a tree skirt for each family member. The patterns are all picked out and the fabric is in a tub waiting for the "auditions." Each family is different so it will be a fun project for me to create a skirt that fits each family’s personality. Two of the skirts are going to be Dresden based and the blades are cut and sewed; this will be as much fun for me as for my family.

    —Betty Grove on June 26, 2014
  • I am making presents for everyone on my list. This means I will be burning the candle at both ends! I must get started right after the 4th of July! I want to make cookbooks filled with recipes from my Mother ( who passed away in March this year) for the gals and I don’t know what I will make for the guys, but more than likely, it will have something to do with a blanket.

    —Jennifer Pope on June 26, 2014
  • I would like to make pretty quilted table runners for my daughters, mother, and mother in law for Christmas.

    Judy on June 26, 2014
  • I have 4 grandchildren, 1 due in July and another due in November. I always make Christmas gifts for them and others as well. I would love to win a copy of the book and fabric, that’s like Christmas for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Shelia on June 26, 2014
  • Our family draws names and I would like to make something special for the person I get. I’m new to quilting but I’m sure with this beautiful fabric I could find something great to use it.

    —Teresa on June 26, 2014
  • When I was a teenager my dad lost his job and there was no money for Christmas. My parents sat us down and told us if we wanted to give gifts, we would have to make them out of things we had at home. That started a tradition with me that has lasted over 40 years. This year I will make 14 pair of pajamas for grandkids, various other items, but I’m planning on making a primitive hooked rug for my sister. She has MS and I don’t think I’ll have her many more years.

    —Sandy Lewis on June 26, 2014
  • This year, and I really need to start this early, I plan on making oodles of gift bags from fabric so they can be re-used. The thought of buying and trashing gift wrap each year is senseless. I love the idea of fabric gift bags in all sizes!

    —Kathy E. on June 26, 2014
  • I try and make "homemade" gifts for all family members but especially for my granddaughter. I also enjoy making Christmas items and donating them to my Corvette Car Group to "silent auction" off to make money for our organization. And then last but not least I try to make something for myself/home – usually a "new" table runner or table topper or a new "holiday" wall hanging to brighten up the house for the holidays.

    —Linda Majer on June 26, 2014
  • I have several things in mind to make for my new great-niece for Christmas. Love the ideas in this book and the fabric gift!

    —Mary Furber on June 26, 2014

    —Sue G. on June 26, 2014
  • I hadn’t planned yet….but must say that reading this blog has inspired me to get thinking. With the great ideas here, several of my family and friends could be receiving homemade by me gifts! Thanks!

    —Maureen on June 26, 2014
  • It is always fun making Christmas gifts for my grown children! Everyone enjoys picking fabric, and then seeing how it is transformed into amazing Christmas gifts!

    —Donna on June 26, 2014
  • I’m planning on a tree skirt for my son and his wife, a lap quilt for my husband (it’s started!), Christmas panels with lights for 2 friends, and whatever else I can come up with! Hoping to get a head start and get some of them finished early.

    —Mary Ann on June 26, 2014
  • I need to make a Christmas tree skirt for my daughter. I noticed that last year she was using a tablecloth around the tree, so I need to get started early.

    —Bridget on June 26, 2014
  • Working on 4 baby quilts lined up right now, finished 2 this spring. I love the snowmen and winter themes! The latest one (so far!) is due in December, so winter quilt would be grand. Also I need a new mantel banner!

    —Jacklynn Grimm on June 26, 2014
  • I plan to make gifts for a local charity.

    —Cherie Warren on June 26, 2014
  • Every year I make something for my daughter, son-in-law and/or granddaughter – but never for my husband and myself. So this year, just to break the habit, I intend to make a fabulous Christmas wallhanging for our livingroom to remind us of what Christmas is all about (also much easier to "put up" than a large tree).

    —Norma Weeks on June 26, 2014
  • I always love to make something unique and fun for my friends and family at Christmas, be it goofy hats, pillows, vests. Still looking for an idea this year.

    —Francine Mullen on June 26, 2014

    —Pam G on June 26, 2014
  • I want to finish Christmas quilts for our beds. My daughter & son-in-law along with my grandson will be here for Christmas this year. The quilt top for my grandson’s "big boy bed" is pieced, the fabric for the guest room quilt is cut and the fabric and pattern for the quilt on our bed is purchased and waiting. I’ve blocked out some days off in July for sew days to work on these projects so hopefully life won’t get to crazy and I’ll get them done! I also have two Christmas table runners pieced that need quilting! Guess I’d better get busy! 🙂

    —Terri E on June 26, 2014
  • Years ago I bought a pattern for an advent calendar and I’d like to get that sewed up for Christmas this year. It would be fun it put little treats in it for my hubby.

    If I like how it turns out, I’ll make some up for my quilting buddies. Wouldn’t it be fun to open a pocket everyday and find a small quilting treasure inside?

    —Rhonda Casey on June 26, 2014
  • I plan on making holiday items for all my nieces and nephews and can always use inspiration. I like what I’ve seen in the ad for this.

    —Wendy M on June 26, 2014
  • With all the wonderful ideas on this blog I should have started in January. There are my six children and their families, my sister, my neighbor, and a number of friends on my list. Sewing won’t get boring with the variety of techniques; I’ll get to learn lots of new things.

    Kathy on June 26, 2014
  • As gifts, I will be making quilts for 2 granddaughters and a new baby grandson. For myself, I plan to make a Christmas table runner. These Riley Blake fabrics would be perfect for that!

    —Margaret Lawrence on June 26, 2014
  • I plan to have a quilt done for my son for this Christmas. I have also been puttering around with an idea to make something for a friend who does not sew but am waiting for inspiration. Speaking of inspiration, the tree skirt in bright blue with dots was so fun. Made me think of my daughter! So her style.

    —Ellen on June 26, 2014

    —sarah on June 26, 2014
  • I usually like to make one thing for each person in the family. It might be something small, but I made it especially for them. I also make a stocking and put things in it when I hear that the person won’t have a Christmas. Sometimes it’s a friend of one of the teenagers I know.

    —Sandra Staley on June 26, 2014
  • I’ve been thinking about Christmas gifts to make so what a timely post for me to find today. My oldest 4-year old grandson has ‘graduated’ to a twin bed and he adores airplanes, so my fabric choice has been made! But I want to make some smaller Christmas gifts like table runners and decorations, so this win would be perfect! Thanks!

    —Marie Chat on June 26, 2014

  • For my grandkids. They always receive handmade things from their G-Ma. From clothes to quilts and lots of fun things. They love having unique things that their friends don’t have and you cannot go out and buy them.

    —Sharon Meyer on June 26, 2014
  • My best friend passed away a few years ago. When her children were young, a family friend made quilted Christmas Stockings for each family member. The children grew up and got married, and she asked me to make similar stockings for the sons- and daughters-in-law. Now the children are having children of their own. I am very happy to say that I am making a quilted stocking for the newest member of the family who will be born in August.

  • Since most of my friends and family are "long distance", I mail most of our gifts. Last year, I did big stockings, even 2 for my sister’s doxies. This year, I think it will be ornaments and maybe a casserole carrier or apron or two. Now that I’ve been forced to think about it, I guess I’d better get started. Love the fabrics. Thanks for a chance to win.

He was a very special man and we all miss him so much. I thought this was a way that we could each share a little bit of him.

    —Jinger on June 26, 2014
  • I always make some homemade gifts for my 3 sisters and my son and married daughter. She has 3 lovely daughters so they get something as well. This year I plan to make a tree skirt for my son and his soon to be bride for their new home in Alberta. As we don’t see them too often , quilted item means more than a gift purchased in the store. Sisters and daughter are getting quilted place-mats and I have one grand-daughter who will get a quilt. The older two now have their quilts so it is time for her to have her own keepsake quilt. That leaves 2 grand-daughters who need a special gift and so far I haven’t decided what to make them. As I sew on the other gifts, my mind will be churning out ideas for these two special girls. Bye for now, I must get busy. Less than 6 months to complete all this work!

    —Suzanne Brinton on June 26, 2014

  • This year, as I turn 61 on July 3rd, I’m beginning my 4th Chevron Tree Skirt. Over the years, my children – as well as some family friend – have commented on the original tree skirt I made for my own mother, over 25 years ago. I later made one for myself and it became a staple of our Christmas decorating, to place the well-known tree skirt around the tree. One year when times were a little tough and money was tight, we could not afford a regular sized tree; so instead we used the tree skirt as a table dressing in the center of the living room, with a 12″ tree centered and our few, small presents around it. This year I shall present 8-10 replicas of that tree skirt to my children and friends for them to hopefully enjoy for years to come – and maybe remember me fondly at Christmas’ I may miss.

I’ll make my husband something for Christmas, haven’t decided on what yet.

  • I would like to make a lap quilt for my Mom. In September she suffered a severe stroke and is now in a nursing home. In just 24 hours she went from being totally independent to totally dependent. She can’t speak or eat. The month before her stroke she was painting her deck and mowing her own lawn. She was in a bowling league. But most importantly she was there for her family and friends whenever they needed anything. I would like to give her a quilt to comfort her and remind her just how much we love her and still need her just the way she is.

All of them are my emotional rock!

  • My Christmas projects are made for a large family. It gives them a part of me; I enjoy the effort; and with 6 children, 18 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren, it helps financially. I love to make pillows for them, but enjoy Christmas stockings, too. These fabrics would be a welcome addition to my stash. I am also a quilt maker, and these fabrics would go a long way to making a great Christmas lap quilt.

    —Carolyn Thibodaux on June 27, 2014
  • Last year, I made a bazillion little rice-stuffed mitten hand warmers. Everybody loved them.
    I try to make an ornament or a small gift every year. We host a Christmas Day open house at our home for friends and family, so I have to make a ton of the "annual gifty" for our guests to take home.
    In the past, I’ve made potholders, coaster sets, tea towels, ornaments, etc. I’m leaning towards angel ornaments this year, a favorite of mine. Or maybe snowmen. Or……
    I’d love the book for ideas. I’ve taken up quilting since my semi-retirement. They are a relaxing break from other sewing and making hats.

  • Every year for Christmas I make my 4 closest friends something as a gift. As the years go by the gift gets better more complex and different. It is fun to watch my skill level improve and since they are my friends the mistakes are ignored. At least for a few years. So I am always on a search for this years perfect gift. I think it is in this new book.

  • I hope to finish a quilt I started for my oldest son and his wife last year – a double wedding ring quilt of batiks surrounded by applique flowers and vines and a bird or two. The work is on the calendar I carry in my head with the vision of the final project! Good thing Christmas comes every year, because if I can’t finish it in 2014, there is always next year! Plus some of those projects in the book just might jump ahead as they certainly will be faster to complete for my son and all the others on my list of people who like getting homemade gifts.

  • I have not made anything for the last few years, but this year, I plan to do a lot more. Just before my daughter was born, my husband threw out all of my crafting stash while I was at work one day. He has since died, and I have been collecting odds and ends of crafting materials the last year so that I can get back into things I love to do. I have plans for several quilt projects and a few clothing ideas.

  • OH BOY Christmas…There was a time when every Christmas I would plan a quilted Throw, bed quilt , baby quilt or bag for my two daughters, my 6 .. SIX grand children, and of course, several friends and neighbors. Over the years there have also been a number of special quilts for "special" angels in need. But this year I am going to do something I said I was going to do when my girls started school and I had "extra" time, you know the time Quilters magically create!
    This year I am making my "Thank You" and "Some Buddy Loves You" Quilted Throws. Thank you to those who give that little bit extra to help those in need. I am a Military Brat and I thankful for the service of all of our armed service members, but I want to thank the Dr. that was in the ER treating the 5 teens in a car hit by a drunk driver. I want to thank the Nurse that stopped to help the mom and her daughter when they could not get to the hospital in time for that special delivery , a 6 lb 9 oz baby girl. We have a lot of unsung heroes, and this year I will be quilting to thank those I can.

  • I’d like to make a Christmas table runner for my 85 year old Aunty who is just such a darling. I decided on a table runner because I am new to the quilting game and can only quilt by hand and with only 6 months to go before Christmas I can probably only manage this task. I just started hand quilting 3 months ago and enjoy it very much. It is so relaxing. My aunty loves Christmas and she is such a jolly, caring person who lives on her own and cannot do enough for her loved ones. She would really appreciate something like this.

  • I have made 2 tea cozies for Japanese students that stayed with me to go to English school. I was a homestay parent. One stayed for 3 weeks, the other one for one month. We are still in contact with each other and every year I make them something because they both enjoyed watching me quilt. I quilted the Canadian flag for each to take back to Japan when their English class ended. Since then I have made small projects and mailed them to Japan. I like to complete my projects before the guild I belong to ends for the summer.
    I guess you could say I’m a bit crazy. I always finished my Christmas gift shopping or making before the Canadian Thanksgiving in October. I don’t like to go to malls after Thanksgiving; too crowded and too much noise.

This year I am making a quilt for my oldest granddaughter, my boyfriend’s son, future daughter in law and my son and daughter in law who received the tree skirt as a joint gift last year. Two are partially completed already.

  • Hello, I am planning many gifts for my family that helps me thru my task and especially for a very special long term dear friend who has been there for sooo many years and gone through so many tragedies this past year! I want to let her know just how very special she really is by always being there for others in need! She loves things from the heart, as she gives so much from the heart. Thank you for your consideration in advance.

  • I’m having so much fun working on my grand daughters quilt. She takes dancing and ballet, and this quilt is gorgeous…I’ll have to do a lot of applique, but I love it…am so excited to get it completed.

    Also made a few 12″ blocks in between for another project…so much fun.

  • I am planning to finish three Christmas quilts, one for my son, one for my daughter and one for my husband and myself. The three quilts will be made from a fat quarter bundle of "Share the Joy" by Deb Strain as that is just what Christmas is about for our family–the joy of each other and the joy of the season.

    —Audrey on July 1, 2014
  • I PLAN on making something for everyone on my list, BUT we know how reality sometimes gets in the way. With that being said, I’ll be lucky to finish the other three pieces of a four piece Nativity set that I started last year for my friend who collects Nativity sets. These can hang on her tree, assuming I get them done…one of these years.
