B r r r . . .

Is it me or is it getting cold out there?? If you live in the southern hemisphere, you may be getting your winter boots out...while the rest of us put our flip flops on. But whether you're sipping hot tea or iced tea, you must be gearing up for some Christmas in July sewing, right?! Just in the (St.) Nick of time, my newest holiday fabric collection, In from the Cold, is starting to ship! Here's a look at the color range:
 If you have any Joy scraps in your stash, this collection will coordinate with it perfectly. And if you're looking for some holiday sewing projects to get started on, here are a few ideas.
I designed this quilt as a free project that you can download here. It has lots of steps, but think of it as a block-or-two-of-the-month and you can easily finish it by Christmas. You can also order a kit —including a printed version of the pattern — from Fat Quarter Shop. 
We've also seen some fun projects popping up on the Moda Cutting Table recently. Tammy at Moda made the mugs even cuter by making mini versions of them.
 She created tutorials for making this sweet gift bag ...
... and festive placemat ...
 ... as well as this table runner (i hope a tutorial will be posted for this too. If it is, i'll be sure to link it up). **Update** here's the tutorial for the table runner!
 So we thought it would be a perfect time to give some fabric away to get you started on your holiday sewing! We'll be divvying up this giant pile and sending packages off to 6 lucky winners.
To enter, here's the thing. I have finished designing next year's wintery collection and have a possible name for it in mind, but i'm just not 100% sure about it. *hint** it's less whimsical than the last two collections, and a little more "pretty" and  "wintery". All you have to do is leave a comment with a suggested name (one entry per person, please). Put your thinking hat, mittens and scarves on and get creative! Winners will be announced next Monday the 24th.

  8. I suppose it depends on what your design looks like! It could be snow drift, snow angels, snow buddies! Or chilly. Or frozen. Or be cool! I have a million ideas! stroll in the snow! Slush! Ice scraper! Still, Still, Still (for religious aspect) or "Mary's Lullaby". Or Angels We Have Heard on High! Or Shepard's Jubilee! Or . . . Brisk Walk! Of course, these make great names for quilts, too!

    ReplyDelete
  11. As soon as I read: "put your mittens and scarves on", I immediately thought of Frosty, because I used to love to build a snowman from the first good snow.

  17. I've been thinking about your last line of fabric. What about "It's time to snuggle up"?. Something cute, something catchy and something maybe to match In From the Cold. I love your imagination and your lines of fabric. All of them. I would love to win and appreciate the chance to win. Always enjoy your blog and will be back again and again.

  18. How about ” Jolly All The Way”?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think "Tied Up with String" would be a great name for a Christmas line, but (unfortunately) I don't know if that fits with your new creation. A more generic name... "All the Trimmings". Thanks so much for the chance to win - I would seriously love to have some of these great strips!!

    ReplyDelete
