Deck the Halls . . . . In June?

It happens to be the hottest day in Minnesota in the past 25 years and that is the day that my new Christmas fabric arrives.  Go figure!

In my haste to rip the plastic off the bolts and take a picture, I didn’t take time to fluff my hair and put on some lipstick.  It would have just melted off anyways!

I haven’t had a chance to sew up much with this line yet, – considering that we just finished up with all the quilt market craziness and the fact that the timing on my fabric lines this year got a little out of hand.  They are all coming out way too close together and I can’t seem to keep up with getting all the quilts made to go with them.

I have finished this tree skirt (found in my book Living Large 2).  Kits can be found here.

There is also a free pattern that shows how I envision the line working together.

You can download the pattern at Henry Glass’s website here.  (Kit here)

Hopefully I will get a few more projects finished with the fabric soon.  In the meantime, I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that the fabric is arriving in stores.  You will have to get it while you can, as a mix-up at the plant resulted in a smaller printing than was ordered. Bummer.

I’m currently working on cutting up some fat quarter packs, including one to share with my readers.  Just leave a comment to be entered to win.  I will announce the winner in my next post.   (Along with the winner of the clutch pattern.  I forgot to announce that winner in my last post, but I will get it taken care of!)


PS – You can read a little more about this line at the Jolly Jabber!

  41. sylvia says:

    Hi there…I am enjoying all the inspiration and now Living Large 2 is
    on my ‘ must have list’ but have not been able to find it locally.
    I hope I’ll be able to order through you. I had the pleasure of attending
    your trunk show in Alberta a few years ago and several of your projects are
    displayed in my home (most recently Modern Day Diamonds). I’m
    very happy to hear it’s finally warming up in your neck of the woods as
    this is where my summer vacations are spent.

  42. Karen says:

    Christmasy, but not excessive. Like the green and yellow colourways.

  43. Beth says:

    Love your new fabrics! Can’t wait to see them and get inspired! Your new patterns are wonderful 🙂

  44. Sherry Book says:

    Well, I’m definitely printing off the free Henry Glass pattern so I’m ready when I win the fat quarters…ha! I’m loving the dots, strips and florals in this line as well as all your fabrics….they’re really just delicious. And imagine it’s even better in real life…
    Is hot here in western Iowa too….don’t ya love spring in the Midwest??

    Love all the colors! I just ordered my Living Large 2 book and am patiently (sort of!) awaiting it’s arrival!

  51. Vivian Oaks says:

    LOVE the new “Deck the Halls” line! Not the historical “brights” of Christmas, but nice muted tones that really go well together! I especially love those green shades!! Beautiful!!

  52. Diane Maxwell says:

    I love that you used the black in the mix of Christmas fabrics – it really makes the colors pop! Can’t wait to get my hands on some of these prints, my favorite is the blue holly.

    Christmas in June, not too bad:)

  96. VickiT says:

  97. Cheryl S. says:

    “Deck the Halls” looks wonderful. Every fabric line you design is stunning. Going to bed tonight dreaming of what I could do with a fat quarter pack…

    Heather, I just feel in love with your Christmas fabric last year and redid my mom’s whole bedroom with that line. This line is just as wonderful as last year. I love your tree skirt out of your new line. I may just have to go shopping and get some before it’s all gone. I love all the comments from all your friends here. I think you have another sell out of fabric that you designed again. Hope the summer is going good for you. I had the first mosquito in the house tonight. Don’t like those pesty things!

  106. Alisa says:

    It’s a beautiful line, Heather! I’d love to make a Christmas quilt this year. I’ve only made one and that was at least 8 years ago.

  107. Chris says:

    Heather you look beautiful and so do your fabrics! 🙂 I love the downloadable pattern, thanks! Happy sewing. 🙂 BTW what was your temp there today? We are having 90’s with some humidity but here in Virginia thats really normal, it gets worse when the humidity kicks in, very muggy.

  108. Ruth B says:

    Gorgeous as always! I love your use of black with all those beautiful colors….stunning. I’m in northern Wisconsin and it is 53 degrees here at 10:30 pm. It was a perfect day with a cool breeze and my friends in the Twin Cities are melting! Makes it hard to think Christmas.

  209. I love the idea of having pretty fabric slipcovers and my boring chairs could definitely use a HMP fabric makeover. I know you can’t put a pattern for slipcovers in your next book because everyone’s chairs are different but a tutorial on your blog would be awesome. I’m a huge fan and have most of your books (including Living Large 2 which I had to get as soon as it came out) and your previous fabric lines so of course how can this one be any different. I’d love to win some of your new line and I’m crossing my fingers!
