I'm getting our Christmas quilting done early this year (and that's SO not like me)! This last month I've been sewing with the new Christmas line from Riley Blake called Comfort and Joy. It has the classic reds and greens, but also some great black prints that really make all the other colors pop.
When I first chose my fabrics for this project, I was on the fence about adding in that black plaid, but I'm so glad I did now! I just love what it adds. And aren't those snow globes charming?
The quilt I designed to go with these prints uses a set of rulers I've had for awhile now - the Tri-Recs rulers from EZ Quilting.** Have you heard of them? They're handy to have, and there are some great tutorials and patterns out there that use the Tri-Recs rulers. Never used the Tri-Recs rulers before? Or maybe you own them but aren't sure how to use them? Check out this tutorial!

I'm calling this quilt Pinwheels & Patchwork. It finishes at 60" x 69", and you can find a free PDF pattern to make your own Pinwheels & Patchwork here!
And you can find the Comfort and Joy fabrics in stores now - although they were going fast at my local quilt shop, so don't wait too long or you'll miss out.
The swirly quilting design I did is a digital panto called Party Streamers from Urban Elementz.
Thanks for stopping by! You can see more projects made with Comfort and Joy on the blogs (and dates) below:

Hi, Andy! I don't think it's ever too early to get a jump on Christmas! Great use of the fabrics and I really like the black prints and the plaid with it. Fun design!ReplyDelete
Awfully pretty fabrics! Thanks for the pattern!ReplyDelete
What an adorable quilt, I love that you used the black plaid, it sets the quilt off nicely.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the pattern, I'd love to make one someday.
Thanks for this tutorial - after reading through the pdf I realised those pinwheel placements were not as difficult as I first thought :)ReplyDelete

This a great pattern. Thanks. I've been collecting flannel and this is perfect!ReplyDelete
Just coming across this darling pattern via Amy Smart's blog post. Thank you for sharing your great pattern!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the pattern but I wish you had included a paper template as I have no plans to buy that particular ruler.ReplyDelete
This is a great pattern and I was so excited to download it, but all I get is a blank page. Can you help? I’m not very good at this stuff but I’ve downloaded patterns many times so I thought I knew what to do.ReplyDelete
Again I really like this design as I have many of your patterns. Thanks
Just found this pattern and love it! I hope to find some alternative fabric since it is 2 years since this was published. Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern.ReplyDelete
Making it now with fall fabric! Thanks.ReplyDelete
