The countdown to market is in full swing. Only three weeks to have the new patterns finished, samples of the new fabric finished and a booth designed. So far I have three new patterns designed, photos finished, and lots of editing to do, so I’ve got a ways to go yet! In addition to all that, we have had a couple rooms in our house torn apart, but that is another post. I’ll just say it’s a good thing I’m so busy or all the dust and mess would be driving me crazy!
Another distraction arrived recently to help take my mind off the mess – my sample yardage of my Christmas fabric line – “At Home for the Holidays”.
I’m really excited about this line and I just have to say that I’m in love with the reds! I have been asking Henry Glass if I could do a Christmas line for a while now, so I was thrilled to get the go-ahead last year. I’ve already done a post about this line here, if you want to read more. The main thing you need to know is that the line works great for Christmas, but most of the prints aren’t specifically Christmas. That means you can make quilts from this line that can be hanging around your house all year long. So, yes, I am going to get lots of miles out of this line! It matches my dining room, living room and kitchen, so I can’t wait to do a little redecorating. But first I have to get some quilts made! So far, there is one top finished -
This is the free pattern that can be downloaded at www.henryglassfabrics.com, so check it out! I made this one to be out at Christmas, but all you need to do is change the applique and use a different border, and it’s no longer so Christmassy.
I have another quilt in the works that can be used as a tablecloth, wall quilt, or tree skirt, but you are gonna have to stop back to see the rest of it!
By the way, this line ships the end of May, so get it while you can!
