1 Month to get ready for 7 Months Away :)

It's June now, which means Christmas is essentially 7 months away ;)  But, Christmas in July, well, that's only 1 month away!!!   It's no secret that I love Christmas in July, having shared many a  Christmas project  (  Simply Modern Monochromatic Stockings,  O Christmas Trees,   Christmas Traditions Advent Calendar,    Ribbons,    Deck the Halls,    Forever Green  )  in the month of July.   And this year is going to be no exception, as I have 2 new Christmas in July tutorials planned.


The first Christmas in July Tutorial will be a fun Classic Christmas quilt and is using the very soon to be released Christmas Figs by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda.   I love the wonderful Classic look of this line and it pairs just perfect with the fun design I have come up with.  I can't wait to share more and I won't have to wait long as this is slated to be posted at the Moda Bake Shop on July 2nd :)   Which means, I best get cutting and sewing on this one!!!  1 month and counting ;) 

The 2nd Christmas in July Tutorial will be a fun and fast quilt.  It will feature Christmas Delivery by Carta Bella for Riley Blake Designs.   Aren't those prints just so fun!!!   I love the cars, presents, type, and especially the buffalo check!!!  How great is that :)   And this quilt design is all about bigger piecing (hence the fast part) to really let these prints shine.  I can't wait to see it all come together.   

And that's what I will be working on this week.   Let the Christmas Pandora station sing out loud, it's time to get ready for Christmas in July :)

So do you Christmas in July????

  1. I'm starting my Christmas sewing today too! I've been selling stockings in my Etsy shop and they were a huge hit last year, so I set aside the month of July to get a head start on this year. 😊
    I've been stocking up on Christmas fabric and let's just say I have almost 100 different prints to choose from 😳 but I can't wait to dive in!

  2. Why wait for July. Christmas year round I say - and I have enough UFO's to allow me to do that - LOL!

  3. Lovely Christmas fabrics! I have a few that I'm still deciding a pattern on - simmering ;)!

  4. Can't wait for your tutorial, I've a Christmas jelly roll and you are going to save my day with this tutorial. Thanks in advance.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
