Christmas Christmas Eve fabric Quilt Alongs

Evergreen Christmas Mystery Quilt Along: Week 1

Hey friends! Just wanted to let you know about a fun FREE Christmas sew along with Fat Quarter Shop that starts today. It’s called the Evergreen Mystery Quilt and Cross Stitch Along. I haven’t had time to actually sew anything up for it – but thought I could at least share a digital version mocked up in Christmas Eve fabric for anyone who would like to see it.

Christmas Eve fabric by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics arriving May 2023.

A Quick Rundown

For the quilt portion of the sew along, we are making a festive little wall hanging. What the finished quilt looks like is a surprise – but I can tell you that the finished quilt size is 31.5″ x 37.5″. Each week, we will work on one row of the quilt (with 4 rows total). The Evergreen Mystery Quilt pattern is Layer Cake friendly; check out the full materials list here. Fat Quarter Shop is making theirs in Sherri & Chelsi’s cute new line, Favorite Things, and is offering kits HERE for anyone who wants one.

If you want to make one in Christmas Eve fabric, here’s what I’m using:

  • 1-1/4 yards background fabric (Moda Bella #9900 284 “Charcoal”)
  • 3/4 yard tree print (5187 15 “Merry Dot” in Pine green)
  • 1 fat quarter accent tree print (5187 14 “Merry Dot” in Sage green)
  • 1 Layer Cake of Christmas Eve (12 squares 10″ x 10″)
  • 1/2 yard binding (5186 16 “Jolly Stripe” in Cranberry red)
  • 1-1/3 yards backing fabric – or the rest of the Layer Cake squares for a scrappy backing

Week 1

Here is a look at the first row mocked up in Christmas Eve fabric. While I used a charcoal background to make the colors pop, this would be a cute quilt in a variety of background options. (Great contenders would be the “Merry Text” print in white, or the “Merry Dot” prints in white or one of the greys.) You can download this week’s pattern on Fat Quarter Shop’s site here:

For more information about the Evergreen Mystery Quilt Along, visit Fat Quarter Shop’s blog post here. You may remember their gorgeous All the Trimmings Mystery quilt from a couple years ago using Christmas Morning fabric. (It’s another free quilt along and just absolutely gorgeous. If you missed out on that one, you could definitely revisit it using Christmas Eve fabric to get a similar look.)
