Christmas in July Free Patterns

As promised I thought I would share with you some of the great free Christmas patterns you can find on the web.  (Click on any of the images to go through to the free patterns.)   

Let’s take a trip back in time to 2011 and Moda's 'Christmas in July’ blog hop:

This Starry Eyed Quilt, made from charm packs and a layer cake, uses quick strip-piecing - so there is plenty of time to make a full-size quilt.  But if you want something smaller, the block size is 16 inches - just the right size for a table runner.

And what about this super-easy advent calendar made using just 24 charm squares:

If you want something small and quick then how about colourful Christmas tree ornaments from Sew Can She and the Sewing Loft

And there'll be no skirting around with this Christmas tree skirt from Sew Can She and Sew Crafty Jess - make it as big or as little as you like:

Now that the tree is nicely dressed we need to do the same to the fireplace so let's pop over to Create Kids Couture for a free pattern that will have your toes pressing down on the sewing machine pedal before you can say 'Jingle Bells':

And from there it is just a short sleigh ride to bring us a little closer to home ..... to Amy made That and her very lovely, very easy snowflake cushion:
Whilst you are there check out her elegant but easy-to-create zipped cushion backs.  And don't be too quick to leave the Amy house of Christmas cheer because Amy will be posting another free pattern this Friday (12 July) as she kicks off the Christmas in July blog hop. 

And then on Saturday you have yours truly – with two free patterns for bunting – one made from charm squares and a delicious gingerbread string.  There will also be a Christmas give-away.
Sew until Saturday .......
