Posted on: December 7th, 2016 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

Christmas is only a few short weeks away….

I’m not working on anything Christmas related this year, but for those of you who may be looking for something to quilt along those lines…. Something to make for a gift this year (or next year!)…. I thought I’d also share a few past makes with you today.


This is Santa’s Reindeer.
The pattern includes instructions
for making a festive door banner
and a lap quilt setting.
Each reindeer block finishes at 12″ x 12″
and would also make a cute mini quilt!



This is Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
This is a free quilt along (found here) and is also available as a pdf pattern (found here).
Each sweater block finishes at 12″ x 12″
These blocks can be used to make:
a table runner
a pillow cover
a cute mini quilt
or a quilt of any size!



These are some of the table runners I made last year.
They are Winter mittens
Wee Little Birds
and the Santa Runner.
All of these runner patterns can be found in my shop here.


Speaking of table runners….
There is a free tutorial for this Stepping Stones block here.
And I have added this block pattern to my shop here.

I got a little carried away in laying this one out in a Christmas themed colourway.
And now I may be planning to make my mom a new runner this year!

  1. You have made me think today Lorna. I loved your Ugly Sweaters quilt along, a actually went out and got the fabrics, but you know how it is, we get busy and prioritise other things. If I had joined in I would have a lovely quilt which was meant to be a Christmas gift for my daughter, instead I put off too long. Is it too early to make a New Years resolution? It will be to keep up with quilt alongs next year and finish my quilts, please hold me to that one.

  2. My Ugly (which is not ugly – I may add) Christmas Sweater Quilt has a place of honour on my Living Room Sofa at the moment. Thank you again for this Sew Along, Lorna. I need to check out your patterns – they are all so special! Thank you for the sale!

    I've been \”in love\” with those raccoons since the first day you posted about them and now I see that Santa Stops Here banner. I just might have to visit your pattern shop. You are very talented. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season of preparation and Merry Christmas!

  6. Lorna that Stepping Stones runner in Christmas colours is awesome! Thanks for a free tutorial!

    Lorna ~ absolutely LOVE the Christmas colors in that tablerunner. I need to make one of those once I finish all the grandkids' quilts!
