Holiday Wishes Blizzard Quilt

Blizzard table topper on DeckToday I am taking part in the Holiday Wishes blog hop put on by Fat Quarter Shop which will run for the next 4 Wednesdays in July. July is a great time to start working on holiday gifts or projects for  decorating your home for the holidays.Holiday Wishes
Holiday Wishes by Sherri Falls of This & That Pattern Company is available from Fat Quarter Shop, it includes 12 quilts for a homemade holiday. Each pattern is shown in full color and you will also find full color diagrams to help you in each step of making your quilt.

I received the book from Fat Quarter Shop and chose to make the Blizzard Table Topper. The table topper is actually made of 4 blocks and measures 36″ x 36″.  I decided to just make one of the blocks for my first table topper.

The patterns in Sherri’s book Holiday Wishes are very easy to follow. I used some batiks for my sample. Be sure and checkout Fat Quarter Shop’s Precuts of the Week, it is a great way to add to your stash!

This will give you a idea of how the table topper looks done in a 18″ x 18″ size. I think making the Blizzard tabletopper full size would also be beautiful for a wall hanging.

  1. Looks great Connie. When I saw her new book this year I wanted it right away. So far however, I’ve hid my checkbook no matter how much I want it. I bought the one last year and really like it, so I’m sure I won’t be able to resist this one too much longer. LOL

  2. Pretty! Love purple and snowflakes!
    Question: is there some kind of opinion or view, about mixing batiks with other fabrics? When you use batiks, do you use them as background fabrics too, or use a nice solid like Kona?
    I won a beautiful bundle from Island Batik, and finally found a quilt-along project to use it. The problem is, there was only 1 yd of cream, which is what I’d like to use for background. But not enough for the project. It’s a neutral basic print that has become really scarce. What do you think–use up the cream I have, then find a similar solid to use the rest of the way? Or use just the solid for background? (I’m not into scrappy much; I prefer things to match and be consistent in my quilts.)

    1. Hi Rachell, I have always mixed batiks with other fabrics and there has never been a problem. I also wash and dry most of my quilts. I work a lot with Island Batik fabrics now and usually use a mixture of their neutral batiks when doing a quilt. This UFO is made with Hoffman batiks and I love using premium muslin, I actually buy it by the bolt.

      Experiment with a small project and congrats on your win!
