Do you remember the Christmas Patchwork Quilt I made?  A picture to jog your memory?

Christmas Quilt

My friend, Carly, wrote up this pattern for her Etsy shop. It uses one layer cake (pre-cut 10 inch squares) and one charm pack (pre-cut 5 inch squares). It is a GREAT quilt for beginners!  The top goes together quickly since you’re using pre-cut fabric. 

So guess what?!?!?  Carly is letting me sell her patterns in my store.  And I’ve made this exact quilt available as a kit!  So  you can make one too! Even better?  This particular kit includes the backing!  You can find it here.   :-)

Christmas Fabrics for my quilt

Speaking of Christmas….we are about HALF WAY through this year!  WOW!  So even though it’s nice and warm outside – it’s not too early to start your Christmas sewing!   Did you join in the Advent Calendar Sew Along?  I guess I did since I have the button on my blog….but I haven’t made anything yet.  In fact, we have never even used an Advent Calendar in my house.  Oh well.  If you’re looking for Holiday fabrics for the sew along…or for any project,  I have added a few new things to the Seasonal Fabric section of my website.

Okay so you’ve stuck with me this long….why not have a little give away?!?!?  I would love to send ONE person the kit and pattern for this super fun Christmas Quilt.  Just leave me a comment telling me what are some of the gifts you would like to make for the holidays this year.  I like to leave these up for about a week but we’ll be leaving town next week.  So I’m guessing that I’ll need to wrap this up after the weekend.  So comment away!  And if you don’t win…well you know where to find them! :-)

Fall Quilt Market 2008 was a ton of fun (and the reason I have not been posting).  I didn’t get back until late late late last night.  Today I’m playing catch up on business, emails, laundry, food, moving and more but honestly what I really want to be doing is sewing.  So much creativity!  So much inspiration!  I will post more about it later, I promise. For now, I leave you with this one picture to give you an idea of how the last several days of my life was spent….meandering my short self through over 2400 booths in Houston.
