My version of Merry and Bright

Starting in september Pat Sloan was doing a 17 week sew along on her Facebook site called Merry and bright.. I started making it along with everyone and soon realized that i did not like some of her blocks so I went ahead and made my own.. It all started with the gingerbread man from an earlier post. In the end  ended up swapping 7 of her blocks and adding a sashing with cornerstones to give my quilt its own life.  I also tried to embellish each block. This entire quilt was made from materials from my Christmas bin with the exception of the alternating blocks.. I purchased a jelly roll for these.

Here are the 7 that I designed myself:


Here are is the link to these.. I have just turned my EQ8 patterns to Pdf.. no instructions…  Christmas blocks

Pat Sloan’s Blocks

now for her blocks  the 3rd week i think she gave us the alternating blocks.. a 9 patch.

These are the rest of the blocks that I made from her patterns.

  Now for the finished christmas

Merry and Bright quilt…



  1. Love your version! I saved all of Pat Sloan’s block patterns, but haven’t even begun to make this yet. It is very generous of you to share your block designs! I just might have to add them to Pat’s! 🙂
