Hello all ~ hope summer has been a fun season for you.  It’s been fun for me, and I’m happy to show you a bit more of Christmas today!

You may already know that quilt shops get Christmas fabrics put up in July so that we all have time to get those projects done for Christmas giving.  I couldn’t help but be inspired by those gorgeous offerings which inspired the Christmas Boot Cut Blooms quilt!  I have also made up custom quilt kits for this version, as well as the original version, too!  I’m offering them all at $250 with FREE shipping~but only until September 1st.  After that date, they are $275 with shipping added.

 As you may know, the kits I’m doing include all the pre-fused and hand-cut flowers too!!! {well over 100}  I have found that many of my students like this option, rather than spending time and money on fabrics and fusible webbing, to search for the colors and styles of flower fabrics they desire.

As a special BONUS for this offer, I’m also including BOTH Christmas and Summer versions of this pattern. Kits include the background, border and binding fabrics, silver lame’ as well as the top quality, GORGEOUS barn-red, embossed faux leather, and black embossed faux leather accents and shimmery black accent fabric, too.

You will only need to purchase enough steam-a-seam Lite 2 to fuse the boot and it’s decorative elements, {about one yard vs  8-9 yards at $7 yard}.  Kits are only only available here on the shop website.  See them  HERE. imageAnd by the way, in case you were wondering, the faux leather is easy to stitch through with a 90/14 TOPSTITCH needle. You can choose to quilt the boot and elements by free motion, as I do, or with an edge stitch foot.  {I love the edge-stitch foot #10 from Bernina, FYI!}. And… I only used Superior Threads titanium coated needles!  It’s easy to fuse the faux leather too, and  I’ve written detailed hints and tips for these techniques and more in the pattern, too!

My kits also include the sweet little feathers featured throughout the bouquet, as well as the details for the little vignette, and cute little cardinal bird, too:
