This book has 14great projects ranging from bed quilts through wall hangings, Christmas Stockings, a table runner and a tree skirt. Although most of the patterns are shown in traditional Christmas colours, ie red and green, I think they would all work in other colours for other times of the year.

As I would expect from any book published by Martingale, the instructions are very clear and each pattern has many diagrams. I also enjoyed the photography in this book. Each quilt is shown in a styled shot (I love the Christmas tree they used on the front cover too) and as a full-face shot so you can see exactly what you are getting into before you start.
Now, excuse me, I have a Christmas Tree Skirt to make!

Review from Australian Quilters Companion, November/December 2013

There are 14 quilted projects in this book; all made using fresh Christmas fabrics. There are gorgeous Christmas stockings and a tree skirt to make as well as many lovely quilts, which could also be worked in other fabrics - not just Christmas prints.
Review from Popular Patchwork, December 2013

The fabrics and colour schemes in this title are adorable. If you like something a bit fresher and more modern than the usual traditional fabric offerings, but you still want something festive for the Christmas period, then this little collection could be what you've been waiting for. Within the 14 projects in this book, there's a mixture of small, easy-to-make, gift-sized projects, and larger more ambitious ones, but on the whole, the piecing is not complicated. The fabrics keep the projects modern but a lot of the patchwork methods are the kinds of things you'll probably have seen before: flying geese, strip-piecing, simple squares and rectangles, log cabin, chevrons and snowball blocks. The snowflake tree skirt and the modern wreath table topper are two of the standout projects for me, but modern fabric lovers will be hard pushed to resist any of the offerings here.
