I have been dying to make a christmas quilt for a couple months now.
**Yes...I realize we are now less than 3 weeks away from Christmas, and there is NO WAY I'm getting this project finished by then. Not with work and my sister's wedding in just under 2 weeks.**
This same thing happened to me last year, when I decided I need to be surrounded by Christmas spirit at the very last possible second. It's a problem...
Anyway...I have been trolling some of my favorite fabric haunts for a while, and just haven't found the right thing. The color schemes of current collections are either too bright (I'm looking at you Solstice and Folk Art Holiday) or too dark/traditional for what I have in mind.
Honestly, I don't really have the budget for new fabric right now anyway...so I started sifting through my stash.
Look what I found!
HOW did I not realize that April Showers (plus some stash additions) is PERFECT for a Christmas quilt?!! Other than background fabric, this quilt will come entirely from my stash! You gotta know, the hubby practically did a back flip when I told him.
I was also gifted an early Christmas present last week - a new smartphone - which finally brings me into this century. Yes!!
I signed up for an Instagram account right away (I have felt super left out, people), and quickly found an informal quilt along scheduled to start in January - #norwayquiltalong. Since Norway is the pattern I was planning on using for this fabric pull anyway, it feels like fate that I join. :)
Linking up with Molli.
