What's New in September 2019!

Here's what's new at Quiltworx for September 2019.

Hello quilting friends! We’ve got two new quilt patterns you may have seen announced on Facebook! These patterns are available for purchase on our website, and their fabric lines are available in a quilt shop near you! Keep your eyes peeled for digitized quilting designs available for the new patterns in the near future.

Our new patterns are all available in the Quiltster App, and we’re adding old patterns as we can too! If you’ve never heard of Quiltster, it’s an incredible fabric auditioning software that allows you to pick and choose fabrics before you spend money. Look for the Quiltster Compatible logo on the patterns below, and click the quilt images or links to learn more about each pattern, find replacement papers, see samples made by Quiltworx.com and others, find kitting information, and purchase the pattern!

Wholesale purchases are available to those approved with a wholesale account. Visit our wholesale page to order (minimum purchase of 3 and advance approval of wholesale account is required).


Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt

62″ Diameter • Fabrics: Hoffman 2018 Fall Batiks

(Not compatible with the previous version)

Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt

You’ve asked, and we listened! Originally published in 2008, quilters have often asked for a way to enlarge and square up Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt. To make that happen, we’ve increased the size to 62″ round, making it compatible with the B & C Groups of the Sunrise Mixer. This allows you to expand the quilt to 70″ round, and even square it up to be an 80″x80″ quilt. We’ve also re-written the instructions updating techniques to include Smart Corners, TRP Lines, and yardage options for several color concepts.

Here’s how it enlarging this pattern works. The Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt pattern fits into Group A of the Sunrise Mixer (62″ round).

Sunrise Mixer Introduction Booklet

You can add the purchase of the Sunrise Mixer Introduction booklet, along with your choice of 4 blocks from Group B (70″ round), and even square it up with your choice of 5 blocks from Group C (80″x80″).
