Make Your Christmas Merry & Bright!

Why not change things up and brighten up your Christmas this year!?! 
Especially perfect if you have little ones, but also perfect for the kid at heart.....
Nite Owl Quilting has a trio of Christmas patterns called Nite Before Christmas Collection that are fantastic.  Merry Christmas Wall Art is a super easy project that is a great addition to your mantle.  No quilting, just fusible applique and it's mounted to plywood.....no binding, my kind of project :o)  Finished Size is 40" x 14".

The Quilted Stocking makes are great size for those of you who are addicted to stocking stuffers like me!  We also added pompoms, just for fun~

The hexagon tree skirt is a fat quarter project; quick, easy and it's under the tree!  It has a 46" diameter.

This hexagon pillow is from the book Sew Merry and Bright by Linda Lum DeBono.  The book features 21 fun and easy patterns.  The pillow was my favorite and it turned out so cute!  The quilting in the hexagons really made a difference with the finished look.  Instead of regular batting, I used fusible fleece; no pinning and it didn't move an inch!  What a great product to work with!!

All of the projects feature fabrics from the BRRR and Jingle fabric collections by Robert Kaufman. 
Put it all together and you have your Merry& Bright Christmas!
And the winner from the Glamping giveaway was.....PippaP.  Thanks for the comments!!

What are we excited about?

Mini charms, aka Moda Candy, have been super popular, but lots of people just don't know what to do with them.  Leave it to Miss Rosie to swoop in and save the day with eight patterns featuring seventeen tiny projects!  Most of them take two mini charms and just a bit of fabric to complete.  There are thirteen minis to choose from with much more on the way.  I think they're going to be a hit~

Junior Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes......1/2 the size and price of a regular jelly or layer, but still fantastic!  For now it's just Windsor Lane by Bunny Hill Designs, but there are more to come.  With a Junior, you can mix your pink and taupe (or green or blue!) and not end up with a ton of leftover fabric.  The Juniors are mixed in with the regular jelly rolls and layers,
so don't think you're looking at a bunch of Juniors if you click the link :o)

And, I've always thought jelly rolls just look cute in the sewing room, these are downright adorable! 
 It was like the first time I saw a mini charm......
Grab some minis or juniors and get sewing!  Time to start thinking Christmas, oh my goodness......
Need one last thing to be excited about???  How about a giveaway!?! 
The latest buzz seems to be the addition of Mary Jane to the Moda team.  So tell us if you love her and if you're excited about her first collection Glamping, a celebration of Glamorous Camping. 
Just drop a comment and you'll be entered for a chance to win a Glamping Charm Pack!
I'll do the drawing next Friday November 9th.  Good luck!
