Holiday Chic & Holiday Stars

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
Holiday Chic
uses five fabrics from the Holiday Elegance collection.



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
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.
