Holiday Celebrations – 17 Seasonal Quilts and Projects

In my last post, I teased a new project I was making with red, white, and blue prints. This quilt is called Sparklers and the pattern is from a brand new book by Pat Sloan called Holiday Celebrations – 17 Quilts and More for 6 Seasonal Occasions. More on both the quilt and the book below!

Holiday Celebrations is the latest book by quilting guru, Pat Sloan.

This book has 17(!) quilts+projects for all of your seasonal celebrations and occasions. Here’s a sampling of a few of my favorites. (All photos by Martingale Publishing.)

I think I want to make every single one of these projects!

As you can guess, I chose the Sparklers quilt pattern. Here is Pat’s version from the Holiday Celebrations book.

Carnaby Collection from Liberty Quilting Cottons

Usually I try a totally different take on a project, just to give it a different look. But I was so smitten with this pile of the Liberty quilting cottons Carnaby Collection (coming to stores next month) and looking for the perfect project to make with it. And here it was!

The blocks in Pat’s version are scrappier – which I love – but I decided to modify my version slightly by using fewer prints per block. It’s fun to play with fabric placement to change up the look of a block. I love both versions.

I paired the Carnaby prints with a Riley Blake Light Indigo woven chambray and the Uncle Sam Blossom basic with red, white, and blue tossed blossoms. (I also added a Lori Holt Bee Basic Red Tiny Daisy print because I wanted one more red.)

These blocks were so much fun to make!  Honestly, if I’d had more of the chambray, I would have kept going and made a total of 9 blocks. The large-scale blocks make the quilt come together really quickly. I’m planning to get this one off to the quilter this weekend.

Holiday Celebrations is available now – hopefully from your favorite local shop – as well as online from Amazon, Martingale Publishing, and The Fat Quarter Shop.

Halloween is my favorite to sew for, and then July 4th. Oh, and I love Christmas. And a fall table runner is fun, too. Yes, I have a problem when it comes to holidays and sewing/quilting. Lol. It’s so nice to get a peek at some quilters that I didn’t know about. I just found Pats videos a few months ago. Have a blessed June.

    I love 4th of July! Summer weather, picnics, BBQ, swimming, fireworks and the celebration of the birth of this great nation. But these projects can be worked many different fabric themes to suit any holiday.

My FAVORITE holiday to sew for is absolutely Halloween. Pumpkins or any autumnal looking quilty project typically catches my eye. I’m thinking that leaf table runner from Pat Sloan’s book will be a must have for fall decorating.

    Every holiday is my favorite to sew for! Pink and red hearts, pastels and Easter bunnies, red/white/blue that takes us from Memorial Day thru Flag Day and July 4th, fall colors that take us from September thru November, Halloween is so much fun, Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday, and there are so many over-the-top beautiful Christmas fabrics for sewing anything you want! And, though not much attention is given to it, I even sew for New Year’s (and also have made Hanukkah and Kwanzaa table runners, though I’m neither Jewish nor Black). I’m just a holiday kind of a gal.

I just finished binding a red, white and blue quilt I made for a friend who is Vietnam veteran and still suffers ill effects from being there, all these many years later. I love your blog posts sew much because every idea and suggestion is simple enough to be doable. My favorite patriotic quilt in my own collection is Land That I Love, created with Amy Smart fabrics.
