Christmas Wreath Wall Hanging



Two sisters whom help us out a great deal at The Calico Horse designed this pattern. They love working with Moda Charms and are always creating new and fun designs. The sisters had such fun with this wreath we wanted to share it. This is the first time our shop The Calico Horse has been on Moda Bake Shop and we feel quite honored.

2 charm packs of Makin" New Friends by Moda
1/3 yard for binding
3/4 yard for backing


Rotary Cutter, and Ruler

Separate charms into 3 piles: blues and greens, reds, and lights.


Cut 27 light charms into 108 - 2" squares

Cut 33 blue and green charms into a total of 132 - 2" squares.

Choose 2 red charms for bow and trim into 3 1/2" squares.

Choose 4 red charms for corners and trim into 3 1/2" squares.

Cut remaining red charms into 14 - 2" squares.



To make bow choose two light 2" squares and two dark 2" squares and trim them down to 1 1/2" squares.

Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of each. Place 1 1/2" blocks on 3 1/2" red square as shown and sew on diagonal line. Press to corner and trim back to 1/4" seam allowance.

I love this quilt. This may sound nutty, but I have been looking for a Christmas project using Christmas fabric, and I think this may be it.

As a first time quilter I am quite impressed.
Do you have tips that could help me out. I'm having trouble taking my time. I always rush!

I'm the one that's nutty. Don't like waste and don't like wasting time. Why not just cut the charms in half each way, making 2 1/2" unfinished postage stamp pieces?

The quilt will come out to 30" which is still a nice sized, easy to handle, WH.
