The Holiday Elegance collection is so festive with its metallic accents! I enjoyed pairing a couple of favorite patterns from the archives of Connecting Threads with these elegant fabrics: Holiday Chic and Holiday Stars.
Holiday Chic may look complicated, but all those points are simply constructed with the stitch and flip method. The Nine-Patch blocks and pieced border are made with strip-piecing. I love the effect of 5938 Chic Stripe Cream/Black in the blocks and border! The 68-1/2” x 88-1/2” size makes a lovely lap or throw size quilt.
Holiday Stars uses six fabrics from the Holiday Elegance collection:
Holiday Stars has an elegant holiday feel with its cream, red, and green colors and metallic accents. Alternating the two lighter fabrics adds visual interest to the background. The Tri-Recs Tool could be used instead of the star points piecing templates in the pattern. The smaller 43-1/2” x 61-1/2” size makes it useable as a throw, wall hanging, or a lap quilt for someone sitting in a wheelchair.
