Gingerbread Quilt Sewalong

When we featured Gracey Larson's Gingerbread Quilt we threw a Christmas quiltalong to celebrate. Catch up with the highlights here and get ready for some super-cute Christmas sewing.

Gingerbread Quilt Pattern

Introducing Gracey Larson’s awesome Gingerbread House Quilt; a row-by-row design made up of a collection of super cute quilt blocks. They’re all traditionally pieced so very beginner friendly and we’re throwing an insta party to celebrate! (Party hats and mince pies are optional.)


Some of our favourite quilt designers joined us for a Quilt Along last Autumn. Follow the hashtag #gingerbreadqal to keep up to date with everyones’ versions of this quilt or scroll down to the bottom of this post to see some of our favourite takes on these Christmas quilt blocks.

We want this to be a community event for all, so we’d love it if you join in too. So join us in putting the “ho ho ho” into all our sewing tables this month and read on to find out more.
