Combo Pack – Quick Christmas Banner & Pillow Patterns
Quick Christmas Banner Pattern: What’s better than coming together at Christmas to pause and make something simple and cheerful? This banner is made up of five quick, modern paper piecing blocks designed by five different designers. Our goal was to give you a chance to spend some time with each of us as you work through our five designs to make a banner you can add to your fireplace, wrap around your tree, or hang from your wall. Each block is 5.5” x 7.5” unfinished and features a design that ranges from 3” x 3” to 4” x 4” and everywhere in between.
If a full banner isn’t your speed, pick your favorite design and make a quick Christmas ornament. Frame one and set it on your mantle. Add a pocket to the back and slip in a Christmas note to a friend. Trim it down and send it as a postcard. Go wherever the Christmas spirit leads you. We hope these designs brighten your day and your home!
Quick Christmas Pillow Pattern: Add some quick, handcrafted Christmas to your home with these two bold, modern pillows! These two designs originally came to life as part of the collaborative Quick Christmas Banner project (Check that out HERE or get both together HERE to save on both.). When requests for mini quilt and pillow versions started popping up, we couldn’t say no. These are both simple, paper pieced designs that you can whip together in a weekend. So grab your scrap bin or favorite fat quarter Christmas bundle and jump in!
This pattern makes a 16″ x 16″ pillow with a zipper closure. If you’ve never installed a zipper in a pillow, this is the pattern for you! It includes detailed step-by-step instructions.
Note: Both patterns outline several tips for successful paper piecing, but does not include detailed basic paper piecing instructions. If you’re new to paper piecing, there are many excellent YouTube tutorials you can check out that will have you up to speed and ready to tackle this pattern in no time!
This is an instant download PDF pattern for paper-piecing / quilting.
