Home For the Holidays

Free Project Instructions!


This week's new designs are all about crafting a warm, inviting home for the holidays. Whether it's greetings to hang on your wall, quilts to snuggle up in, or home decor gifts for your friends, these designs will inspire you to create beautiful new projects.


A series of holiday messages kicks off this week's new releases. Stitched up and placed in a rustic wood frame, they'd make great hostess gifts for friends this holiday season. If you liked the recently released Homespun Happiness designs, you'll love these!


Perennial favorites such as Sunbonnet Sue and heirloom applique are back in stunning new Christmas variations. There are a bunch of animals decking their own "halls" -- mouse holes, igloos, and such. And a medley of embroidered "blocks" borrows its look from patchwork quilts.


Make yourself at home and take a look through these new designs. May they bring you a happy home!

 Bring holiday cheer to your home and loved ones with this Quilted Christmas Medley!
