Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
As quilters start preparing their holiday gifts for family members, friends, and teachers, Free-Quilting.com- a resource for free quilt patterns, has received an increase in requests for Christmas items. “Downloads for Christmas table covers, stockings, and quilts are on the rise,” says Steve Suddarth, Marketing Analyst for Free-Quilting.com. “Big projects like quilted bed spread patterns are popular, but then so are relatively simple ones, such as Christmas stocking patterns.”
Quilt Patterns for Beginners
The demand for beginning quilt patterns increased in June. Holiday décor patterns such as table runners and place-mats are trending for beginners. Other popular first time projects include quilted table runners, wall hangings, and baby blankets.
Quilting Patterns for Stocking Gifts
Christmas stockings make great winter birthday, wedding, and anniversary gifts, which is why some quilters are already starting their projects in the summer. Suddarth says, “If you have a lot of people to gift, you can personalize each stocking and give those you care about something extra meaningful.” One of the most downloaded stocking patterns at Free Quilting Patterns are teacher stockings. Most quilters add final touches to teacher stockings in the fall after classes start.
Table Decorating Quilt Patterns
From holiday place-mats to wall hangings and Christmas tree base covers, colors that are bright and simple are trending. A simple tree table place-mat typifies a lasting look that quilters can use again and again in their own homes. Table decorating quilt patterns are relatively easy to quilt, which makes these patterns sought-after free downloads.
Decorative Christmas Bedding Patterns
Now is the time to start bigger quilting projects for Christmas. Throws, bed spreads, and Christmas at the lake quilts take time to make, but are valued keepsakes. Applique patterns and holiday theme downloads for bedding are on the rise.
Religious Themed Quilts
Quilting patterns that support religious themes receive favorable reviews by those who download them and receive the finish gifts. Suddarth says, “Snowmen, Christmas trees, reindeer, and Santas are always popular, but angel patterns, stars, and Biblical verses are also quilter favorites.”
With over 429,000 members and 400+ quilting patterns, Free-Quilting.com is one of the largest Internet resources for downloading free quilting patterns.
