The home of a quilter is never complete for the holidays without a delightful Quilted Christmas Wall Hanging. Set the mood for festivity and ring in the holiday spirit for your friends and family by decking the walls with your own creativity!
Christmas Row Quilt
Rows of charming quilt blocks edged with lovely sashing create this creative Quilted Christmas Wall Hanging. Designed by Janet for The Spruce blog, you’ll love choosing the fabrics and colors for this wonderful row by row expression of joy. Janet’s quilt is made of six horizontal rows of various sized blocks. You’ll recognize traditional designs amongst the holiday focused Candy Cane, Tree and Gift Box blocks. Janet’s steps are very detailed and include marvelous tips that beginning quilters will especially love. Save the scraps left from the excellent block cutting instructions. They’ll form the basis of the quilt’s outside border! I love the versatility of the Christmas Row Quilt’s blocks. Mix up the order of the rows or use blocks individually for matching pillows for the sofa. If you’d like a larger or smaller hanging, just add or subtract blocks or rows!

Christmas Tree Wall Hanging
Oh, Christmas Tree – how lovely are your branches. Or appliqued ornaments in this case! Julie of The Crafty Quilter blog’s adorable tree uses fusible applique, machine quilting and traditional star blocks. The bias cut, striped binding perfectly complements the scrappiness of Julie’s Quilted Christmas Wall Hanging. She surrounded the cute tree with lots of swirls and circles, free motion quilted on a snowy white background. Be sure to pick up a spool of white Coats Machine Quilting Thread for successful stitching! Julie’s careful cutting and piecing instructions and PDF templates make her tree a superbly enjoyable project. Finishing at 36-1/2” square, the Tree Hanging is perfect for small living spaces or a little spot that seems a bit bare. Click here for the Christmas Tree Wall Hanging tutorial.
Flying Geese Holiday Quilt
Your holiday décor will soar with this beautiful formation of red and white Flying Geese! Solid, tone on tone and dotted fabrics festively combine to create this traditionally inspired seasonal quilt. Created by designer and author, Avis Shirer for the All People Quilt web site, the results are spectacular! Avis simplifies construction with detailed instructions and excellent tips. You’ll assemble Flying Geese units then follow her steps for stitching the units into rows, the rows into blocks and the blocks into the quilt’s top. Display the finished project with pride as a Quilted Christmas Wall Hanging or use it as a cozy throw on a comfy chair near a crackling winter fire!

Home for Christmas Wall Hanging
On the Martingale Publishing web site, I found a delightfully homey wall hanging designed by authors Heather and Elissa Willms. It’s full of holiday quilting joy! Easy nine-patch blocks form the base for perky fusible applique trees and a star gilded home. This is a design that will be wonderfully enjoyable to customize! Personalize your hanging by using your own house colors. Or try adding a few baubles or glittering buttons and sequins to the trees. To finish the appliqued designs, choose machine stitching or add your own hand stitched touch. The Willms included easy to follow instructions that you’ll enjoy following, even if you’re a newbie quilter. Click here to visit Martingale’s web site.
