This pattern shares the beauty of the Advent wreath. Each panel represents one week during advent, and each week a new candle is added to the Advent wreath. The focus of each week – faith, hope, joy, love – appear above each wreath.
This quilt is a wonderful way to bring the spirit of Advent into your home. The rich purples and pink hint at the excitement of Christmas to come, while the subdued images keep our hearts in a time of preparation for Christ’s birth.
The versatility of this pattern allows you to make it in three different ways: lay the panels end-to-end to make a banner for the wall; stack two panels on top of each other to make a wall hanging; set the panels side-by-side to make a table runner.
Dimensions: Varies based on layout (see image).
