Glad Tidings: A Free Christmas Quilt

I know, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Christmas just ended, but if you want to get your Christmas projects done by next December, the time to start is now (ha-ha!).

Glad Tidings is a medallion style panel quilt that I designed for Robert Kaufman using their Winter’s Grandeur 4 collection.  I made Oh Tannenbaum for Winter’s Grandeur 3 last year and I always have fun trying to figure out a unique design for around a panel.  I think I like this year’s quilt even better than last year’s!

Attaching the final border.

The piecing for the quilt is quite easy (and mostly strip pieced!), but it takes organization, because there are alot of subtle variations in the Irish Chain blocks. Hopefully the thorough instructions will make it all easy-peasy!

Winter’s Grandeur 4 will be available in February and the pattern comes out in March.  You’ll be able to download it for free right here.  My last two Christmas quilts were also sold as kits on Craftsy, so I’m thinking you may find this one there too!
