It's Time to Get Started on Christmas!

We are excited to show you some of the new projects in the store! We aren't sure where the summer has gone ~ school is starting awfully early, it seems. In any case, if you haven't started thinking about Christmas, we hope the projects in this newsletter will inspire you!

Laura Berringer brings us a holiday collection that is not just for Christmas. The group focuses on winter and holiday flowers, berries, fruits and leaves associated with this special time of year. Her dramatic white poinsettia is accented with rusty red pomegranates to create the lead floral. Coordinates include a lovely little trailing vine and berries design, a subtle pine needle texture, and a handsome yarn-dyed plaid coordinate. The colors are rich and seasonal, with a slightly vintage feel, perfect for holiday quilts and home accents with lasting appeal.

Here are a few Projects . . .

We've just cut the kits to make this beautiful quilt. We've even enlarged the quilt to make it a more usable queen size quilt for you.
