Christmas in August

Ok, so maybe I'm a month behind on the whole Christmas in July thing- I prefer to think instead that I'm months ahead of the whole Christmas in December thing instead. It has felt like Christmas the last few days. I dug out some ornaments from last year's Christmas trove and dug through my fabric jumble to find all the holiday fabrics. Turns out I didn't really have much left over. But as a friend of mine likes to say: God Provides. Often in surprising ways!!!

My surprise came yesterday when Jasper and I tripped over to a quilt store I hadn't been to before. I was trying to find a sub for some Kaffe Fasset fabric I'd used up and walked into a winter wonderland. Christmas the way I like it with lovely Moda Fabrics draped every where and literally hundreds of bolts of winter inspired fabrics. Turns out that this shop, The Four Seasons Quilt Shop, specializes in seasonal fabrics. If you click on the link to the shop you can get a visual of their shop. I selected a few quickies that caught my eye and thought I'd share them with you.

The swirlies on the far right are Kate Honarvar forTimeless Treasures, the next few are from last year's Joann stash, then I have a couple fabrics from the Figgy Pudding line. If you scrapbook you might recognize the name from a line of Basic Grey scrapbooking paper that came out a few years ago. It seemed so familiar when I saw it- guess I know why now;). It's cute though. The stars pattern is from the Holly Jolly Snowmen collection from Kathy Schmidt for Moda.

More favorites include the Crazy Eight line from Moda. They come by the yardage or you can buy one of these cute little layer cakes that include a piece of each fabric in the collection.

Lots of links in this post- hope you enjoy them!
