Does anybody have any recommendations for good patterns? Or do you all just wing it? (On the one hand I feel that drawing a suitable Christmas stocking shape should be easy, on the other the fear of messing up the shape is holding me back...)

So far Iíve made 3 Christmas journals that use small amounts of Christmas fabric in addition to Christmas themed paper from my paper stash. Iím down to just a few small bits and a couple of fat quarters of Christmas themed fabric that may be enough for some pot holders or trivets and and journal decorations for a couple more Christmas journals that Iím working on. The rest of the Christmas presents that I'm making or have already made for this year do not need Christmas fabric which is good, since Iíve been trying to shop my stash rather than buying fabric.

I am not giving any sewn gifts for Christmas this year. But that doesn't mean I'm not making projects. I am making scrap rugs and rope bowls for future gifts needed during the year. This year the kids and grands will get some items on their wish list from me. A few clicks and I'm done shopping. DD asked for a Snowman throw she saw a quilt kit for. I bought the kit and will give that to her with the promise of making it for her birthday.

I love the Totally Tulips pattern. I made one for a raffle and made over $2000. The quilt was stunning and happy with bright colors.

I've also done placemats and matching napkins, ornaments, a yearly one, so now i'm asking for help. what can i make, it's 3 sets husband and wife gifts, and new baby 3 weeks, and a big girls who will be 3 in the beginning of December. She got an apron and potholder and cookie cutters for her birthday this year. Oh, last year, everyone got homemade aprons. the woman got quilting fabrics, and the guys got denim with a bar-b-q embroidered on it. I start next years gifts in October. I'm at a loss. someone, please HELP!!!

I'm working on the "A Little Bit Shorter Tall Tree" quilt. I finally finished the piecing today. I'll put the borders on tomorrow and hopefully get it sandwiched. Quilting will happen next week.

I just started a Christmas quilt on Friday. Took me about a week to determine what pattern to use and what fabrics would work well together. Using Atkinson Designs "Slide Show" pattern. Using Christmas fabric and white on white snowflake scraps from a Christmas quilt from several years ago. Used up all the scraps of the white. And 10 fat quarters of Christmas fabric!! Yeah, made a small dent in my Christmas fabric box.
I drag that box out every year about the middle of October, one year in the middle of July, and for some reason never really get motivated to just do it and use some of it up. Guess the "Covid lock down" has been good for one thing anyway.
In my search for quick and easy quilt patterns that would showcase Christmas fabric and not require that it be a perfect match but blend well, I re-found Fabric cafe. That is the quilt company that has patterns for 3 yard quilts. All her patterns are based on three yards of fabric and makes a nice size throw or lap quilt. She also has a lot of new you tube videos that showcase her patterns and gives ideas of fabrics to use.
Don't think I can post a link to the you tube video she posted on Thursday using Christmas fabric with her patterns. She is selling her patterns and fabric and am not sure what the forum rules are for that. I already have another one planned using her pattern Picture Perfect that I already had and never made.
