Candy Christmas Mini Quilt

I have a new Christmas mini quilt pattern out, just in time for the holidays. It’s called Candy Christmas.

The pattern involves some easy appliqué over a pieced background.

I think this Alison Glass fabric is perfect for a Christmas tree – the ornaments are already built in!

Once sewn, there are many ways you could embellish your tree – embroidery, ric rac, beads, sequins, pom-pom trim and ribbon. The only limit is what you can dig up in your “miscellaneous” drawer.

After creating my mini quilt top, I chose matchstick quilting for my background. Well, it’s pretty lazy matchstick work – they’re not very close together. It’s a great choice for mini quilts as it adds a lot of body/structure to the piece.

And finally, the binding for my Candy Christmas mini quilt was the same fabric as my outermost background layer, as I liked the framing effect it made.

My sewing machine has a bunch of fancy stitches which would make for fun appliqué options. I went with an uneven edges satin stitch. It’s very forgiving and adds a kind of snowflake-y feel, in my opinion.

If you’d like to make your own Candy Christmas mini quilt, you can find the pattern listed in my shop here.

If you’d like some ideas on how to use a patchwork tree and how I embellished another version of this mini quilt, come and read my ideas over here.
