Festival of Lights by Michael Miller

I was invited to participate in a holiday blog hop using Michael Miller fabrics. I could choose the collection I wanted and when I saw the Festival of Lights, I KNEW I had to work with them. Hanukkah fabrics aren't that often printed and I've just about used up my little bits saved from 10 years ago. While I'm not Jewish, I know that most of us have friends and neighbors who celebrate the Jewish holidays and we want to give them something meaningful. I mean, do they really want Santa and the reindeer?

Here is a sneak peek at these gorgeous prints. I am so excited to work with them. I even have a project or two in mind. I also received a few of their Fairy Frost blenders and this will give me lots of possibilities. You know how I get my inspiration from the fabrics themselves. They whisper to me . . .

We launch the first part of December. Then I will reveal what I have planned. I think you will like it and I may even have a free pattern or two!

Can I show you what I've done in the past with my leftover scraps? Fussy cut some motifs for a bookmark and a gift tag.

And my favorite, which I've made multiple times - a paper pieced Dreidel made into a gift bag. Maybe I'll make up a few of these. Wait and see!

I even had a few of these published in Modern Patchwork's holiday issue:

Come back in December and see what I've made. I have enough fabric to also make a small quilt and I have the perfect project in mind. Think "Star of David" with 6 points and you're almost there!


  1. I always work up a couple of Hanuka gifts and am really thrilled with this new fabric line. Looking forward to seeing what you have in mind.

  2. Hi Debby! Hanukkah seems really early this year! These are great ideas, and I have a few friends who would really appreciate them. Happy Happy FRIDAY! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Can't wait to see your patterns for Hanukkah

  4. These are beautiful Hanukkah fabrics and perfect for your projects! I must find some to add to the stash. I am making a Hanukkah quilt now from fabric purchased a couple of years ago.

  5. I love these fabrics - gorgeous colors and wonderful designs. I look forward to seeing what you make!
