Sharing on Sunday...Christmas in July

This is the 6th Sunday in Sharing on Sunday where I give a little something away to a special blogging friend who leaves a comment, drops by for a quick peek, shares a picture, a thought or an idea or just comes by anonymously and stays for a bit. However or whenever you stop by...a great big Thank You!

Since this is the first Sunday (or Monday if you had a crazy holiday weekend like we did) in July, I think I'm going to have Christmas in July!
space
Here is this week's give away. Almost 2 yards (1 yard 33 inches to be exact) of Sandy Gervais' Christmas X-citement for Moda. It has 7 seven rows and includes 3 panels of repeats. You can make 3 different panels if you wanted. See on the bottom row...it repeats Merry Christmas 3 times.

This is a close up of the rows.

The first rows are stars and trees...

then angels...






Then a navy blue row of snow flakes.



Next is a row of houses.



then snowmen...




The last is the row with Merry Christmas across the bottom.






Not sure how the colors show up on your computer, but they are true navy blue, burgundy, olive green, brown and a tea stained looking cream. When I first bought this fabric, I pre washed it, just to let you know.
space
You can cut up the rows and use them for borders, cut them up and add your own blocks in between the rows and make a cute sampler wall hanging or just quilt it as is. No matter what you do with this fabric, it will be cute!
space
Now all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll pick the winner next Sunday.

Thanks again for being here,
~Karen~

  1. I haven't seen that print and it's really neat! I started in January making Jolly Santa quilts for all of the women in our family and the girls over 20. Could I beg?
    That is so perfect since there are 3 girls over 20.

  15. oooo I know exactly how I would use that fabric!! I'm stitching a wide design - too wide for a pillow, but it would work in a wall hanging. I love all the sections of that print...sew much fun indeed! I have so much difficulty finding fun holiday fabric here.

  17. Funny, as I was relaxing and reading blogs I follow (includes yours) I was thinking of Christmas in July! And, as soon as I saw this beautiful fabric (before I spotted "giveaway") I thought of some fun design ideas. Please count me in your very generous giveaway. I'd really like to create something beautiful with this yummy fabric!

  18. So cute!

    It is very cold in this part of the world at the moment, so those snowflakes and snowpeople seem very appropriate to July.

  19. Oh my Goodness. That fabric is cute-ness personified!

    I'm with Vireya. It's freezing down under at the moment and I love that you're posting Christmas fabric. We're doing Christmas in July at work this month so we can experience what Christmas in winter is like.

  20. This is a beautiful panel. I could see myself making some pieced blocks to alternate with the panel rows to make a larger quilt.

  60. I have started a embroidery quilt, it will have square's with things that remind me of the happy times of my child hood. Christmas was always the happiest time, so I would use this to help my quilt along. And any left overs (if there was any LOL) would be used for a Christmas wall hanging that I have been going to start. Thanks for the awesome inspirations.

  61. Very nice Christmas print. Can't wait to see what can be done with it. It is great to get all excited about Christmas this early in the year - gives us all time to start work on those projects we should have done by then (ie Christmas stockings for the kids that I haven't made yet@!).

  66. As it was 98 in WV this week, and my air conditioner just went out of my car, my refrigerator went on the blink with water everywhere and I am out shopping for a new frig with sizes that are not working with my kitchen only location, the Moda Christmas fabric brings a smile tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Karen, I have not seen this fabric before. Is it new to the market .... or maybe old? Doubt that I will win it so I am going to hunt for some because I love it! Still enjoying your TTT!!!

    ReplyDelete
