I have been waiting for today –
The day I get to show you a fabric line that I painted up last summer. I have gotten the go ahead from Henry Glass fabrics that I can spill the beans. . . .
It’s called At Home for the Holidays
The line includes traditional Christmas colors of red and green, plus the black to add some depth and sophistication to the line. The prints are a combination of traditional motifs and some larger scale prints that give it a modern feel.
Again, trendy and traditional, my favorite combination!
There are only four prints in the line that are specifically Christmas. I wanted to be able to use these fabrics for Christmas and around the house year-round. I have lots of red and black in my house, so this line will work in well with my decorating.
For example, this is my dining room – and this fabric line will be perfect in here!
My favorite color in the line is the red. Deep. Saturated. Bright, but not too bright.
I added more ivory prints to the line than I usually do, but I just couldn’t resist the black and red on the ivory background.
Just a close up of some of the apple greens and blacks . . .
By the way, it is a very dark, gloomy day here in MN, so the fabrics in my pictures don’t look as vibrant as they actually are. But maybe this will help you see what the line really looks like –
I put together this free pattern that shows how I envision the line working together. I’m excited to make this quilt, but I have to wait for my yardage to come, so this is actually just a digital quilt at the moment . . .
This pattern will be available at http://www.henryglassfabrics.com, later this spring.
Yes, you are going to have to wait until May to be able to get the fabrics. So why am I showing this to you now? First of all, I have been holding this secret for like six months now. Secondly, I thought you might want a heads-up on what’s coming out. Plus, the fabrics reps are now out selling this line and if you are a shop owner, now is the time to get this line for your store. I will let the rest of you know when the fabric is available in stores. I know it seems like we just did the Christmas thing, but Christmas fabrics usually come out in May/June. The fall fabrics come out in July. Weird, right? But this way you have plenty of time to get your Christmas quilts finished 😉
You guys are the first to see this line, so let me know what you think. I’m always curious to see what your favorite prints and colors are.
