Christmas Quilt Cookies (Tutorial)

Mixing the Christmas and quilt themes into cookies is an awesome combination.
I did this set of cookies two years ago, and I'm just now posting them.
It was a series of uncontrollable events that I'll try to rectify in this moment. :)

This blog post is a compilation of a few ways you can create quilt cookies at Christmas.

We'll start with "puffy" quilts......

To get the billowy puffy "blocks" within a quilt,
start by flooding the main part of the cookie in your color glaze of choice.

After it has dried for at least two hours,
use a square cutter to imprint  the block shapes within the quilt.
(see photo below)

Outline and flood the square shapes with another layer of glaze.
This layer gives it that puffy look.

The boarder of the quilt can be decorated in whatever way you'd like.
For these two quilt cookies, I went with a "lace" like edge.....piping lots of dots and lines.

For a much easier quilt set-up, make several (12-15) cookies of the same size and shape.
Squares and diamonds work well.
Make glaze in 3-4 colors and decorate each shape uniquely.
Try dots, stripes, plaid, snowflakes, holly, trees, etc.

Once they are dry, place them all on a platter together, 
and you have a beautiful Christmas Cookie Quilt. :)

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


Personal Side

Wow......Thanksgiving Day has passed and the Christmas season is officially here!
Bring it on. LOVE this time of year.

We're celebrating Thanksgiving tonight since I had to work yesterday.
I've learned to adjust my holidays to accommodate a health care profession. ;)

Everything is ready for Christmas.....and I'm excited.
This last week I had fun trying out a bunch of new Christmas cutters.....
There's so much to choose from these days.
It can be very addicting! haha

I'm teaching a private class this next week.....
It will be fun to teach in the comfort of my own kitchen!
Plus we'll have all the Christmas decorations surrounding should be a blast.

There's a new social media (very similar to FB) that cookie decorators have migrated to......
so just in case you'd like to try it out, here's my TSU page.
If you need an invitation, use my short code "cookiecrazie".
Hope to see you there! 
Maybe we will all actually get to SEE each other's pages that we've liked. ;)
I'm off to prep for tonight's feast.....
