​A Pattern Pack for the Seasons

Posted by Alice Mace Nakanishi on Oct 27th 2014

Do you want to make a full-size quilt for Christmas? Too late, you say? Think again. Enter the new pattern pack Celebrate the Seasons by Cherry Guidry, the Cherry Blossoms pattern maker and fabric designer.

Her Christmas quilt, Merry and Bright, is one of four holiday quilts to make—spring, summer, fall, and winter. Cherry set up a bold, clean layout as a base for whichever holiday quilt you choose, with a vivid “framed” quilt center, background, and borders. The nine different-size blocks are the stars of the quilt center grid—five appliqué blocks and four zigzag-patterned accent blocks. The charming appliqué designs give the quilt a modern, sophisticated-with-whimsy look.

Cherry’s step-by-step instructions are also easy to follow. Celebrate the Seasons includes a section of super-clear general instructions, full of color illustrations and tips, as well as detailed materials and cutting charts for each quilt. The included full-size appliqué pattern pieces are numbered and shown in layout diagrams to take the guesswork out of positioning the pieces. And if you’re a fan of fusible appliqué, you’ll appreciate that the pattern pieces are already reversed!

P.S. Do you need a smaller project for this Christmas? You can use these appliqué pattern sheets to add Cherry’s lively holiday designs on tea towels, pillows, table runners, pot holders, tote bags, … !
