brings us Christmas in full COLOR. It reminds me of the first time I
watched Disney on TV in color (yeah, I just dated myself!). It was just
breathtaking! Technicolor Tidings
is fun, bright and lively so when I saw it for the first time, I saw
presents, presents and more presents all wrapped in these lovely hues of
pink, green and teal. Of course, being wrapped in fabric, one MUST
have fluffy bows, hence, the bows on the packages.
I just stumbled upon this blog post contest over at Taken Patiently. She made a really cute tote bag from one of our Christmas Cheer charm packs.

How cute is that? She's giving away two more charm packs, and she's got a neat giveaway for a $25 gift card if you join her Handmade Holiday Challenge. Head on over and check it out!
There are many wonderful things about my job, and one thing that delights me is seeing photos of customer's quilts using our fabrics or kits. In fact, that's one of my favorite things about our Quilt With Us community. What really tickles me though is when a customer takes the time to mail a snapshot of a finished quilt with a letter in this age of email and social networking. Like most of us, most of the mail I get is junk mail, so to receive a hand written letter is truly special!
I received one this week from Peggy Robinson that I had to share. Peggy writes:
I am very pleased with the kit I ordered from you. I backed it with flannel because I happened on a snow flake print in same colors. A friend has an embroidery machine and quilted it with a variety of snow flakes and scenes--gorgeous!
Here's the snapshot of the finished quilt, and I agree that the embroidery on it is wonderful! And that backing flannel looks like it was made for the group.

If you're reading, Peggy, thank you for sharing your beautiful finished quilt with us. It made my day!
