Christmas is always a crazy busy time so I like to get started early. I like to do a little throughout the year so I am not totally stressed out when the month of December rolls around. We have had unseasonably warm weather this Spring. The weather was perfect for sitting out on the deck, listening to a good book and tracing fusible for a quilt from the book, Christmas Is Coming by Cheryl Almgren Taylor.
I made this quilt top last year using red, white and gold. I sold the top right away and planned to make another one but time got away from me. You know how that is.
So, this year I plan to make another red, white and gold quilt when my new Christmas fabrics arrive in my Christmas Craft Supply Shop, Christmas Jul. I pulled some of the last blue holiday fabrics from the Christmas Jul shelf to make a blue and silver quilt top. Michael Miller's Fairy Frost fabrics add a little bling to holiday projects.
I absolutely LOVE fusible appliqué projects. They go togethers so quickly and they look so lovely. I still have to sew around all of the appliqué pieces, sew the blocks together and add the border. I will post a picture of the finished project....soon, I hope.
