hi friends ~




this is my color recipe:  think shades of red.  {dark, medium and light values in florals}; that would be pinks/purples/reds.  think greens, including  even spring-like yellow-greens and forest greens.  sprinkle black and white for sparkle, and the dominant, bright bold red of poinsettia, and you have a lovely {and lively} christmas color palette.

perfect for a pillow! 

i’ve made two; one is on a white background with red binding, and the second {below} is a heart on a red background with white binding.

and of course, i’ve sprinkled in some of my favorite little motifs, including a cardinal, and some cute labels.

ice skates…

snowflakes, hats, and mittens!

my pattern, “a heart to give” features a simple, easy to make, classic  envelope-styled back.  it was also be easy to add a zipper if that floats your boat, too!

it’s time to take advantage of those wonderful christmas fabrics floating around in the quilt stores these days… soon… they will be gone!

soli deo gloria
