As quilters we have to start sewing early for the holidays! So welcome to Christmas in July! Today I want to share some seriously adorable Christmas quilt blocks and Christmas quilts with you, I found over 30 amazing patterns from seriously talented designers. These are for varying skill levels so be sure to read the instructions carefully before starting. If you purchase any of these patterns you are supporting a small business woman, there are so many amazingly awesome small business owners on Etsy and I love to support them!

There is just something so nostalgic for me about the characters of Christmas. The Claus family and Rudolph. Little gnomes and elves and adorable little snowmen. I love them all! These are the images that help to bring joy to little kids and adults alike!
The rosy cheeks and sweet little face make this one of my favorite Santa patterns that I have seen. This shop has SO many great patterns and I couldn’t include them all. So I highly recommend you check it out!
I had to include the companion to the above Santa. Mrs. Claus is sporting a cute little bow and has an even more adorable face than her over-hyped husband! We know who is really doing the work in the Claus household, am I right?!?!?! I guarantee she is keeping the elves in line and cleaning up after those pesky reindeer!
This is another adorable variation on a Santa Claus block from The Sewing Loft. His little mustache is precious and I love his droopy hat! She has added buttons as eyes. This would make a really cute little pillow!
This angel from the Sewing Loft is so sweet. The pattern is straight forward and adorable. This would be a gorgeous addition to a Christmas quilt sampler or even as a full quilt of angels. Either way you can’t go wrong!
I love this take on a snowman! The sideview so you can get the full effect of his nose makes me smile. And the windblown scarf is pretty special too! I just adore this little guy!
I don’t think I will ever get over the gnome trend. I hope it stays FOREVER!!!! This little gnome holding his gift looks so sweet. You could add buttons for eyes and a couple felt circles to give him some rosy cheeks. This is an FPP pattern. Check out all my tips and tricks for FPP HERE.
Appliqué Christmas Quilt Block
Appliqué is a method of quilting where you cut an image out of fabric and then attach it to the top of your fabric. This is frequently done with a zig zag stitch.
Another method for appliqué involves folding the edges under and using a fusible adhesive to attach the appliqué.
You can also raw edge appliqué which means you don’t use a zig zag and instead leave the edges raw to fray and add some texture to the appliquéd piece.
Christmas Memories Truck
We often cut our tree from the farm, I only wish we had a truck like this to make it even easier to get the tree home. The little red truck image is somehow so iconic around Christmas time and I love this sweet little pattern.
This quilt makes me want to snuggle up in a cabin by the fire drinking hot chocolate. This cabin is just so inviting and then the log cabin blocks around it make me giggle, log cabin blocks around an actual log cabin, ahh quilting humor.
Does anyone else love a nutcracker as much as I do? Fun fact I was in the nutcracker as a kid, I played a little mouse that ran on stage ran some circles and then ran off. My one and only theatrical appearance! These appliquéd nutcrackers are so detailed and fantastic!
One of the nice things about appliqué is that you can get intricate details, like in a snowflake, without having to piece super small cuts of fabric. I love this sweet pattern and the color choice makes me smile!
This shop has a ton of awesome applique patterns. If you love Christmas applique I highly recommend checking it out! I found a few adorable mug rugs that I am dying to make.
Christmas Tree Quilt Patterns
The Christmas tree, perhaps the most iconic image of Christmas. There are TONS of awesome tree patterns, and I have included some of my very favorites!
This crazy tree is so adorable. I am a sucker for pink so that might also be why I love this one so much! But this would be cute in so many different color schemes!
Stop it, this is too freaking cute! I love the trees and then the little not so hidden gnome santa. I love absolutely everything about this quilt. Including the candy cane binding, which I now need to make and put on ALL the Christmas quilts.
This quilt would be the most special gift for the young children in your life. It is precious and fun and I know they would cherish it forever. I mean the little ornaments hang right on the tree, so freaking sweet!
I am a sucker for a pixel quilt and this one is no exception. The ornament is precious and the tree inside is super cute. I also love the asymmetrical ornaments on the tree. So yeah, you could say I love EVERYTHING about this pixel quilt.
This would be a great quilt if you have a lot of scraps lying around. The herringbone pattern gives this tree a really realistic look and I dig that.
How cute is this little block? This is another FPP block. This would be a great scrap buster. I want to make a whole pile of these cute Christmas quilt blocks!
This quilt is neat because both sides could be the top! You could use so many cute Christmas fabrics to make this fun quilt.
Modern Christmas Quilts
Modern quilts are quilts that are inspired by the mid century modern movement.
This is a neat little pieced tree block. It would make another great scrap buster.
How cool is this peppermint block? It makes me want to make all the peppermints and also eat all the peppermints! Yum!
Pieced Christmas Blocks
This block is SO fun! I love the idea of making it into a pillow! This would be great for using up your green scraps!
So the big news around here is that we just adopted two little kitties. So of course we are kind of obsessed with all things kitty right now, and this block is no exception. I can see our curious little kitties playing exactly like this on some presents! LOVE!
I’m loving these sweet Christmas lights! These old school Christmas lights are my favorite to have around the house so the idea of having them on a quilt makes me super happy too! This shop has a huge collection of Christmas block patterns. You can find them all HERE.
This paper piecing pattern is part of a larger quilt pattern. The larger quilt is made up of several adorable “wreath” like blocks. One has mittens, another has Christmas lights, and another has stockings. Check out the shop to find all the other fun patterns!
This Christmas quilt block comes with instructions for creating a fun pillow. I am just in love with this fun little Christmas neighborhood! It gives me all the feels.
This is a super intricate block but the end result is so worth it! You could make a beautiful quilt using this block, change the color of the cabin and the base of the snow globe for each block!
Umm could this block be and sweeter? You see what I did there, candy canes are sweet, but also the block is sweet 🙂 I’ll sit down now.
Traditional Christmas Quilt Blocks
I love this stunning quilt. It has that vintage vibe that gives me all the nostalgia.
This is an adorable little quilt. You will want to master fussy cutting for this block. Fussy cutting is a technique where you cut your fabric based on the pattern or picture on the fabric rather than just by measurement.
This quilt is beautiful and looks great with Christmas fabric, but you could also make it with non Christmas fabric and have a beautiful year round quilt.
