21 Christmas Holiday Nutcracker Quilt Patterns

There’s something about the Nutcracker that makes us want to create with it year after year. Maybe it’s how this story can be so many things — sweet and innocent, dark and sinister, silly and frightening all at once. Or perhaps it’s because, in this world of high-tech electronic toys, the Nutcracker is quite possibly the cutest wooden toy ever invented. Whatever the case may be, we love designing quilts inspired by this classic tale. In this post you will find 21 different quilt patterns inspired by The Nutcracker, some are modern interpretations while others have a vintage feel. All of these quilts would make excellent gifts for friends or family members who love Nutcracker or those who just love quilting!
