Christmas Village – Christmas in May

Hello my quilty, crafty friends, it’s Ingrid here again from www.joejuneandmae.com .

Is it ever too early to start looking at Christmas sewing projects? I personally don’t think so.

And we all know that, if we want to sew something special for someone special, it’s best not do it last minute.

This fabric series ‘Christmas Village’ by Katherine Lenius gives endless possibilities for my Christmas quilt blocks.

All of these blocks are foundation paper pieced.

I love the classic almost vintage feel of the prints of this adorable fabric series. The colors of this fabric series are

classic Christmas colors in reds and greens, but Katherine Lenius added a modern twist in baby pink, a powdered

mint and a bright navy.

As you can see, this fabric series also includes the cutest little whimsical prints that are absolutely perfect for

fussy cutting. And if you know me a little bit, you know that I just love fussy cutting.

Fussy cutting gives you the opportunity to showcase a special part of your print and turn a basic quilt block into a

short story. Don’t you agree?

Christmas quilt block patterns

All of these quilt block patterns come in several sizes, to give you the opportunity to use them in all sorts of different

projects. I turned two of my quilt blocks into these adorable round pot holders.

And while I was making these, I decided to write up a tutorial and a free pattern for all of you, so hop on over to

www.joejuneandmae.com for a step by step tutorial and free pattern for these round pot holders. Of course you can

make the pot holders with or without the paper pieced detail, but the paper pieced detail just add the extra

specialness, don’t you agree?

I think I will make a whole bunch more, they are really easy and quick to make. And who wouldn’t be happy with a

Christmas gift like that?
