Quilt Block Ornament Series
Christmas Ornament Quilt Block Wrap Up

We hope you enjoyed our Christmas Ornament Quilt Blocks! We had a blast coordinating these for you!

Today we wanted to share the final projects the designers created with all four ornament quilt blocks. However, before we do…we want to send a big THANK YOU to our friends at Windham Fabrics for their kindness in sending their O Christmas Tree Fabric collection for the projects!

Up first Designer, Amy Warner shares her completed quilt with a few tips on how to change the look!



Christmas Ornament Christmas Ornament 3

Hi again, Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy here to show you my finished project using the Christmas Ornament blocks.  You can totally change the look of your appliqued blocks by putting them on point.

To make the above quilt, create the previously released Christmas Ornament Blocks.  Applique them on point.  Make 4 of your favorite quilt blocks.   The ones shown are log cabin block.  Cut 2 of the blocks on the diagonal.

Cut the last block across the diagonal twice, yielding four triangles for each corner.  Sew them in rows and use the above quilt as a reference.  Add a 3″ white border around the quilt.    Quilt and Enjoy. I hope that enjoyed making the four Christmas Ornament Blocks as much as I did.  If you did make a project using my Joy block, please tag me on Facebook at Sew Incredibly Crazy.  I would love to see it.



Teaming up with other Thermoweb designers for the Holiday Quilt Block Sew Along has been so much fun!  Each ornament block has been gorgeous and now it’s time to put them all together into a festive holiday decor project.  Carla here from Creatin’ in the Sticks and I’m excited to show off my new table runner.  Table runner for the quilt block series at Thermoweb by Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks

 

Christmas Table Runner

By Carla Henton at Creatin’ in the Sticks

Finished size:  51″ x 15 1/2″

Supplies:

4 – quilt blocks from the Thermoweb Holiday Quilt block series
HeatnBond Fusible Fleece
Aurifil 50 wt. thread (#2024)
Windham Fabrics – O Christmas Tree by Whistler Studios
Backing fabric (3 fat quarters), binding fabric (1 fat quarter), gold border  (1 fat quarter), ornament border (1 fat quarter)

Instructions:

First, stitch the quilt blocks together with 1/4″ seams.

Second, cut the gold borders:  2 – 1″ x 12 1/2″ for the ends and 2- 1″ x 49 1/2″ for the top and bottom.  Stitch the end borders first and then the top and bottom with 1/4″ seams and press.

Next, add the ornament borders by cutting 2 – 1 1/2″ x 13 1/2″ borders for the ends and 2 – 1 1/2″ x 51 1/2″ borders for the top and bottom.  Stitch the end borders first and then the top and bottom with 1/4″ seams and press.

Stitch the backing fat quarters together and press.  The next step is to cut the fusible fleece. Measure the size of the backing or just lay it on the fleece and cut it out. Now, fuse it to the wrong side of the backing fabric.

Next, lay the quilt top right side up on the fusible fleece and give it a light press with an iron.  This step will hold it in place while you quilt it with just a few pins to hold it in place.

Last is Amanda Niederhauser. Amanda recently moved into a new house and wanted to remake the blocks in a fun, retro colorway to match her home and new decor! We think you’ll agree…it’s fabulous!

I am so excited to share my finished ornament wall hanging!  I went with retro Christmas colors to fully embrace the mid-century vibe.

Now that you have all your blocks finished, it’s time to put them together!  They would make a cute 4-patch style wall quilt, but I decided to make mine into a long, table runner shape.

I can’t decide which block is the cutest!

    I’m not a fan of applique, because I haven’t found a method that works best for me other than needle turn, which is time consuming and planned to skip this project altogether. I started to regret my decision as each block came out, lovely all, so in the end, I downloaded each. Thanks to each designer and Thermoweb.
