So I have to get busy. My mom and I are going to be sewing alot this week. First, I have to unload the fabric.
I try to match them up as I take them out of the box.
Then I have to take the plastic wrapper off each bolt.
Phew...this is hard work. Last week my mom let my brother unload a collection called Fruitcake and I was not too happy about that. This is my fabric. So I took off my jacket and got back to work.
It might seem a little odd that we are unwrapping Christmas fabric in June. But that is because us quilters need time to make our projects in time for the holidays.
Cute. Now I am unwrapping the jelly rolls. They have a 2 1/2" strip of all the fabrics in the collection already precut.
And now the charm packs. They are 5" squares. I like to sew with these. I think they are my favorite.
My mom thought our customers might like this book. So she ordered six of them. We are going to make those stockings on the cover. If you look closely they are made out of this fabric collection which is called 12 days of Christmas and guess what? It was created by my favorite designer...Kate Spain!!! If you go to Kate's blog you can see a picture of her with the woman who designed these four stockings and wrote this book.
