Charmed Christmas Lap Quilt

I’ve been busy these past couple of weeks working on making a lap quilt out of some charm packs that I received from Hancock’s. My one son is a bird fan so I couldn’t resist buying 3 packs of Moda’s Woodland Holiday by Sentimental Studios when they came on sale.

Seaching for ideas on how to use the charm pack I found the block called Disappearing Nine-Patch. This is an easy block to make as you just sew a nine-patch block together and then cut it apart and rejoin the cut pieces in various ways.


Nine-patch using 5″ Christmas charms.


Patch cut into four.

You can rearrange the blocks into various patterns.


One version of arranged squares.


Square arrangement I chose.

And finally the finished product.


Finished quilt is 51″ x 56″ and used 3 charm packs and has a finished 3″ border.

I’m finding the clothesline outside a handy tool for photographing the finished quilts. The sun wasn’t quite right but you get the picture (argh, argh).

This was a very easy quilt to do and since it was machine quilted quite fast to put together. No tricky sewing or matching of the seams very easy.

  1. Beautiful Karen. The fabrics and colours are amazing. I’m sure your son with love it – if he doesn’t….I do….roflmol.

  2. Love the colors and I really like doing the disappearing 9 patch it goes so fast. I’m sure your son will love it.

  3. I plan to make a christmas lap quilt for this year (?) and was interested in the disappearing nine-patch method. I also like your use of black backgrounded christmas fabrics and the border too. I think I’d like to use a red border, though, and maybe a tartan flannel sheet for backing. I’ll let you know and will post a photo. Whenever it’s finished…
