    Christmas fat quarters?

    I bought 27 Christmas fat quarters in a bundle for $3 at a garage sale a couple of months ago. For the life of me I can't think of a quilt pattern for them. I've looked at quite a few lap quilt patterns. I'd like to make a lap quilt out of them...I think...but, it doesn't have to be a lap quilt. Does anyone have a suggest for me? Thanks!

    Yep, I do. Do a Turning Twenty quilt. There are directions for different sizes of quilts and a Christmas lap quilt would be lovely 48 x 48 or with a 6.5 inch border it would be 60 x 60 and only take 9 FQ's. Do we get to see pics of your 27 FQ's? You could do 3 Christmas quilts. :-)

    I just went to this site and I put it in my favorites. I think all of them are so pretty that I'll have a hard time choosing, but I think the ft qts might do well with the christmas present quilt. Thank you so much.

    Thank you Sandy...I will google the Turning Twenty pattern. And doing a 6.5 inch border sounds really nice. Thanks again.

    Well, you certainly have great ideas & know just where to look! I love, love, love the hoffman fabric pattern Wrapped in Pretty Bows. I think I'm going to print that one out. Thank you so much!

    No problem! I have an addiction to downloading free patterns and I just went to my "Christmas Projects" folders and pulled these out! Be sure and post pictures when you are done!

    I didn't peek at the what the others posted for ideas, but my first thought was how about a simple tumbler quilt? It could be all scrappy from so many different fabrics used.

    Have fun with whatever you pick!

    If you could find a fabric that looks like Christmas tree branches, you could cut circles out of your fabrics and applique them on to look like baubles. You could use more of the fabric in a border or borders around the outside.

    And with any leftovers you could make real baubles using styrofoam balls from your craft shop- so your lap quilt would match your tree
