Christmas in July - New Fabrics are Here

We received a shipment of Christmas fabrics yesterday. I know it is hard to think about Christmas quilts when it is 115 degrees in the shade, but now is the time to start working on Christmas quilts or other projects. Get them done, so come December you can sit back and relax. Tee hee, I know that is hard to do even if you get all your gifts before December. The holidays are just busy times. So crank up your air conditioner, get out your Christmas music and start sewing! What fun.

Here is what we have this year that is new. Plus we have other Christmas fabric left over from last year that is so cute, too.

This is a large panel. It is about one yard wide by width of fabric (WOF). It is really pretty.

This picture shows large poinsettias and bells. They are not all that big. If you look on our website, you will see they are quite small, which they should be for a border fabric.

Chrstmas packages. They go perfect with the Christmas Tree.

And of course a red to bring in the jolly.

This fabric is really stunning. It is a black/black background with beautiful red and white candy canes.

As dark as the background is for the candy canes above, this fabric is amazingly white background with beautiful two-toned greed holly leaves with red berries.
These fabrics are from Quilting Treasures and VIP Exclusive, which is part of Quilting Treasures. The top ones are called Christmas Eve and is designed by Liz Dillon. The two bottom ones are from Quilting Treasures and are called Very Fairy Christmas.

Now is the time to get started.

Keep on Quilting!
