Sweet Dreams

In the last post we asked you to check back to see what we would do with the Hurry Down The Chimney fabric.  We kept it simple and quick and have kits available for you to make your own.

Of course you could use an endless number of fabric combos to make up these pillowcases so we decided this would be a fun project for such a cheeky fabric.  We used a coordinating Shadowplay and Cotton Dots fabric as accents.

What a merry sight when you lay your head to rest.  Sweet Dreams!

 

Christmas In July!

As a quilter or sewer you are probably familiar with the term “Christmas In July”.  This is the time of year that us creative types must start on our special homemade gifts if they are to make it under the tree in time for the holiday.

However it can be difficult to get into the Christmas spirit during the long, hot, lazy days of summer while we are at the beach soaking up the sunshine, sipping iced tea and roasting marshmallows on the campfire.  To help shift our mood to a more festive one the quilt shops elves get busy lining the fabric shelves with holiday themed fabrics to inspire us with yuletide cheer.

We commonly see winter landscapes,

A Merry Little Christmas

warm and inviting prints,

Christmas Sepctacular

and an abundance of pointsettias and snowflakes.

Aspen Frost

Of course there is always a snowman or two…

Holiday Dreams

and then we find this

Hurry Down The Chimney

I’m not sure what category this fits into but stay tuned to see what we do with it!
