Besides embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon), you will need

  • medium-weight cut-away stabilizer (instead of stabilizer you can use polyester craft felt),
  • light-colored cotton fabric with a snowflake pattern in gold or silver (we used a couple of differently patterned fabrics),
  • 2 contrasting fabrics with a Christmas pattern for the flying geese blocks;
  • batting,
  • fabric for the backing (1 yard) and binding (about 1/2 yard),
  • quilting threads to match the fabrics,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter (or graphic pencil and sharp scissors).

Emboridery

Stabilize the light-colored fabric with medium-weight cut-away stabilizer for embroidery. Upload the designs into the machine and embroider them one by one.

Trim the stitch-out of Old Saint Nick to 7 1/2 " x 10 1/2".


Trim the stitch-out of Santa Claus with Gifts to 8 1/2" x 12 1/2".


The design Santa's Sleigh consists of 2 parts. Sew them together as explained in the instructions and trim to 12" x 16".


Cutting:

Out of the first patterned fabric cut 52 rectangles measuring 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" (cut strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric and subcut them into rectangles.)

Oot of the second patterned fabric, cut 104 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (cut strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric and subcut them into squares).

Out of the light-colored fabrics with the silver/golden snowflakes cut:

  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 35 1/2",
  • 3 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 8 1/2",
  • 4 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 10 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 12 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 12 1/2".

Sewing the Flying Geese Blocks:

To make a flying geese unit, take a 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangle and two 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares. Place one of the squares on one end of the rectangle, draw a diagonal and sew over it. Trim the excess fabric, leaving 1/4" seam allowance. Press the seam, unfold the red triangle and press again. Repeat with a red square on the other side of the rectangle.

Make 52 flying geese blocks.

Quilting and Finishing:

Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free-motion style all over the quilt

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.



Your quilt is ready.

Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
