The Gift Quilt

It's Day 7 of our simple, stylish holiday quilts ! Here's a quilt which encompasses the spirit of the holiday season, which is giving to others. What could be better than a quilt sewn to look like a giant present, whether it is for friends, family, or even yourself?

The Gift, 27 x 33, by Brandon Mably at Brandon Mably Designs

Brandon Mably is the Studio Manager for the Kaffe Fasset Studio in London, and he shares Kaffe Fassett's interest in bold swirling fabric patterns with vibrant colorways.  The background of this quilt is done in easy patchwork squares, while the ribbon bow is machine appliqued. You can make this quilt in pretty contrasting holiday colors, as quilter Laura West Kong has shown on her blog, with a bright red bow and sparkling green accents.  "The Gift" pattern is available in a wonderful book, Kaffe Fassett's Country Garden Quilts, written by Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably, and others.

  1. Clever idea for a Christmas quilt, I've seen people putting a big bow round their front door, and in a street near us there are bows around trees and lamp posts.
