Start by pairing your white charms with your Christmas Charms and sewing your Half Square Triangles. I have a tutorial here if you have never made them before.
For this project I pressed to the dark side, usually I just press open but I find it is easier to match points perfectly when pressing to one side or the other.
Trim your HSTs down to 4.5″ x 4.5″. You will have 40 sets.
Next sew the 2 pairs together butting the center seams nice and tight and you will have a block that measures 8.5″ x 8.5″. I like to alternate each block when pressing the middle seam, one up, then one down. Again this leads to better alignment. You butt the seams up next to each other and the point line up perfectly.
Assemble your top. Remembering to line up those alternating seams.
Quilt as desired.
Bind using your favorite method.
Happy Holiday Sewing!
