Christmas in (Almost) July

Winter Tidings Collection by Blank Quilting
 Yes, it's true: fabric companies release their holiday fabrics in the hot summer! But it is fun to play with such happy colors and to "see" a cardinal in the summer (which I tend to confuse with robins anyway).

This Happy Hexie Table Runner is one of my new patterns with Cut Loose Press. They are quilt shop exclusive and very affordable ($3.99)! Yes, can you believe it? I have sewn this table runner 6 times and I hope this is the last one! Now I just need to quilt it (hopefully, next week). It is going on a trip to be displayed at an Open House for quilt shop owners.

Happy Hexie Table Runner - 29" x 54"
Those hexagons are so easy to cut out using a 60 degree ruler. You really don't need a funky template. Those rulers can cut just about any size hexagon (and half-hexagons, 60 degree triangles, 60 degree diamonds, and even those 30 degree diamonds if you want to square up the sides). Truly, my favorite ruler - a work horse!


  1. I love Cardinals in Christmas prints.

  2. It always seems so strange to see Christmas fabric in the summer. The runner looks wonderful.
