Jan Patek's Christmas 101

It's almost July so I thought I would get a start on Christmas.

I bought  Jan Patek's book "Country Quilts for your soul" last year.  I just love this book so many wonderful quilts in it.  Some nights I just sit and dream about making all the quilts.

Christmas 101 is one of my favorites.  Her version is made from Moda Remembrance which isn't available anymore or at least I couldn't find it.  So I have tried to substitute fabric.  I am not to sure about the second angels hair.  In the photo it kind of looks like brain matter or worms - not good.

I have completed the first three blocks.  The quilt is only 42 x 36 so the blocks are not large and they make up quickly.
Hope you are happily stitching.


  1. I recently made the Christmas 101 quilt top using Remembrance. Your substituted fabric choices work well.

  2. I am inviting you to come and be part of my blog hop:

  3. I recently took out my Christmas 101 kit I'd orderd a few years ago, having had to wait to work on it due to medical issues. Afer carefully identifying what fabric goes where, found I was missing some fabric from the kit -- backgrounds for at least 1 block and the wide outer border. Found your blog/info doing a google search for the Remembrance line of fabric to order to replace the missing kit pieces and your pictures of substitutions you made is most helpful.
