Christmastime is full of magic, even for quilters! Don’t believe me? Watch as Jenny transforms a simple pack of green 10-inch squares into TWO gorgeous Christmas tree quilts! If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!
She starts with a cute modern chevron, but be sure to watch all the way to the end, because (spoiler alert!) just when you think the fun is over, Jenny whips out an adorable pinwheel version as well! When you are finished watching, be sure to comment which tree you like best!
Chevrons have been a hot trend for a long time. (A really, really long time.) Jenny stitched up THIS version in 2015, and THIS one in 2012, but it goes back much further than that! Chevron motifs have been found on 4,000-year-old pottery and rock carvings – and, honestly, they’ve been cool ever since!
The Strings Attached quilt is made quick and easy with the 10” Rhombus Template, but it’s the vertical sashing that really sets this pattern apart! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Step 1: Make a basic 9 patch.
Step 2: Slice it up like a madman.
Step 3: Swap, rearrange, and restitch.
Step 4: Gasp/weep/rejoice at the wonder of your magnificence.
Optional: Show off your handiwork, leaving out the part about how easy it was to make!

Quilting superstar Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction is here to team up with Jenny for a new tutorial, the Denim Strip Quilt! This is a great quilt for beginners because it looks so much more difficult than it is, so you can show off your skills without pulling your hair out! It doesn’t even require binding (though you could absolutely construct it like a traditional quilt with binding)!
Amy Barickman’s Crossroads Denim fabrics are a dream to work with! They are so soft and come in so many gorgeous colors that you’ll definitely be making a list of all the things you can make with it!
This quilt was inspired by this pillow that Amy had made and we just had to turn it into a quilt!!
