Christmas in March?

For years I've had this fabric lingering in my stash.  I bought it from a little mom and pop fabric store and had great intentions of making Christmas themed placemats with it.  Every year I've pulled it out near the holiday season and not had time to make them up.  This year I decided to break that cycle. I used the "printed" fabric to help me practice my machine quilting.  Now they are ready and waiting for Christmas 2017.

    1. Me, too! I love red and green, but I like a little bit of variety mixed in.

  2. Strike while the fires hot! I make things for Christmas all year round and tuck them away until December. It's fun to get the box out and rediscover all the goodies.
