KITS: Fat Quarter Flourish featuring Christmas Morning by Lella Boutique

This spring I stitched up my Star Crossed Pines pattern using the new winter collection by Lella Boutique, called Christmas Morning. This beautiful collection features an array of cranberry, sage and silvery gray prints. While I was working on Star Crossed Pines, I knew I’d have to make another project with this gorgeous fabric, and I decided on my Fat Quarter Flourish pattern.

Fat Quarter Flourish finishes at 20 1/2″ square, and the top is made from just five fat quarters. It’s quick to sew and easy to finish yourself with simple straight line quilting. This is definitely a project you could complete well before Christmas. It would be a lovely wall hanging, table topper or candle mat for your home. It would also make a treasured gift for someone you love.

When I finished my Christmas Morning version of Fat Quarter Flourish, I had a hunch that many of you would enjoy making this mini quilt as well. Kits are available on my Etsy shop. (UPDATE: KITS SOLD OUT IN 12 HOURS. MY APOLOGIES.) Each kit includes:

  • Paper Pattern
  • Fabrics as shown in photograph (five fat quarters for top: 2 green, 2 red, 1 white)
  • 1/4 yard binding: Cranberry Stripe 5148-16
  • (Backing fabric is NOT included.)

Each kit will also include a slip of paper with the color substitutions for the pattern. I would suggest writing these changes in pencil in your pattern, to help you keep everything straight as you are cutting and sewing.

  • Blue > Green floral (Moda’s name: Pine Snow Blossoms 5140 15)
  • Red > Red dot (Moda’s name: Cranberry Magic Dot 5147 16)
  • Yellow > Green geometric (Moda’s Name: Pine Bright Star 5144 15)
  • Green > Red geometric (Moda’s Name: Cranberry Comfort 5146 16)
  • White > White tone-on-tone (Moda’s Name: Snow Winter Flora 5143 11)

While cutting fabric for kits is time consuming, it really does bring me happiness. I myself know that little thrill of receiving a quilt kit in the mail. With each kit I make, I imagine the happiness it will bring to one of you.

  1. Oh how gorgeous!! This pattern was my very first purchase from you. I love it in holiday prints ( I just bought the same line- love it!).
    I need to make another, thanks!
    Oh- love your binding!!!!!!:)

    1. Thanks so much Sue! This collection is just beautiful! And that red stripe binding . . . it is perfect for a Christmas quilt! 🙂

  2. Oh, I was so excited to see this! I wanted the pattern the first time you showed it, but now I’m getting your kit, because I REALLY love Christmas Morning fabric and these will be great together.

    1. I’m glad you got one Susan! Your order will ship tomorrow, so you’ll have it in your hands before you know it! Thanks so much. I love that fabric too!

    1. Thanks Linda! The fabric is so pretty. I’m struggling with whether I keep it for myself or give it to someone else. (Maybe I’ll just have to make another one!)

    1. Hi Simone! I’m sorry to say I had made up 50 kits and they sold out in one day. The pattern is still available, and perhaps you could find the fat quarters from another shop?

      1. That’s great news for you. I can see why it sold out. Plan B works for me too so I’ll get your pattern and copy your fabric choices.
