#ScrappyChristmasHSTquilt Tutorial



Everyone needs a cozy scrappy Christmas quilt for the holidays.



This beauty was made using three different layer cakes.

I used Hometown Christmas Edition by Sweetwater, Return to Winter’s Lane by Kate & Birdie, and Berry Merry by Basic Grey.

If you are going to cut your own 10” squares, you will need 126,  make sure you have a wide variety of lights and darks. 

Finished size 87” x 108”



Sort your 10” squares into contrasting pairs, put them right sides together, matching the edges as perfectly as you can. 

Follow the simple tutorial here on my blog HERE.

When you start out with a 10" square your HSTs end up ~6-3/4” unfinished.   With this method of making HSTs, it doesn't matter if they aren't all perfect.



Once your HSTs are all made, and pressed with the seam toward the dark side, you can choose how to lay out your quilt. Here are three designed I debated between. (I ended up choosing “A”). 

I arranged them in a 17x14 block layout. 

Then sew up and quilt as desired.
