Cozy and Joyful Iris Quilt

Hellooo!! I am so excited to share this Cozy and Joyful Iris quilt with you and a few details about how to keep those directional prints straight in the Iris pattern

Here's a mockup of where we're headed...

I love a good Christmas quilt, and this one is no exception. It feels so beautifully classic and sweet, and the details in these fabric from Art Gallery Fabric's Maureen Cracknell are just delightful. 

Ok, now for details. Begin with arranging your half of your fat quarters/quarter yard cuts into A-I order. Shown below is the order I used for my Cozy and Joyful above. 

You'll assembly your top half using this orientation, being sure to keep those directional prints in the right orientation! 

Then reverse your order for the other half of your fat quarter/quarter yard cuts! 

You'll assemble the bottom half using this orientation, again, keeping those directional prints facing the right direction! 

You can do this for any set of fabrics that you'd like to keep directionally straight. I hope this helps! 

Happy Sewing!



  • I, too, am getting ready to cut my fabric for the Iris quilt and would love a tutorial. I am a little confused on the cutting instructions, ie, “cut (2) 4.25” x WOF.

  • I purchased the pattern and downloaded it. Do you have any tutorials? I thought I saw something somewhere? Hoping to watch before I cut into the fabric.

  • Hi! I am just now starting to cut out fabric for the Iris quilt. I’m stumped . What are the size of each strip? Are we talking about the 5.5 in by wof? Or do I cut again before sewing the strips together? Thank you?

  • Thx Jennifer. Love my fat quarter quilt bundle. Wondering what the name of the white with gold spots fabric was that you used in your sashing? Love it. Bernie😀
