My Christmas Wish List

Coming up with a Christmas wish list to give my family has always been difficult in the past. It was much easier when I was little and living at home. But as an adult, I think it's hard because if I want/need something, I just buy it. I usually don't wait until Christmas or my birthday and ask for whatever it is. This year, however, has been different.

I decided to ask for fabric that I really want, but maybe am not willing to buy myself for whatever reason. Here's what made my list this year.

A fat quarter bundle of All Star 2 in green from Hawthorne Threads.

Some linen in The Morning Dew from

A fat quarter bundle of Innocent Crush in Potpourri from Hawthorne Threads. I want to make the Colorbrick quilt from Stitched In Color with this Innocent Crush fabric (hers looks amazing!), but I want to use the gray linen as the sashing instead of a tan neutral.

A fat quarter bundle of Far Far Away II in Meadow from Hawthorne Threads. I really want the aqua colorway too, but all the FQ bundles were out of stock when I made my list.

And lastly, some paper hexagon pieces. I love looking through the Bee Hexed In Flickr group and seeing all the variations people have made of the pillow from Fat Quarterly. Kati brought hers to our Modern Quilt Guild meeting a few months ago and I loved it. Now that I'm getting braver in trying new techniques, I'm finally ready to try hexagons.

So, there you have it. What are you hoping to get for Christmas this year?

great choices, I hope you get most of them!

(and BTW, I just make my own hexes:

I print them out on cardstock and yes, I have to cut them out, but its not to bad with an exacto knife and you can also change the size!

Merry Christmas!

I love the Far, Far Away line!

I asked for gift certificates to the Far Quarter Shop, along with a membership in their charm pack of the month club!

These are great fabrics! I am loving linen too, I bought some last month, I hope to use it soon :)

I hope you find all of these goodies under your tree. I want to try hexagons next year, too, I think, but I didn't put them on my Christmas list. And I adore that FFA, it's so pretty! I can't wait to see what you do with it. I think the main thing I asked for this year, other than various fabric fat quarter sets, was a trip to the Sewing Summit :)

P.S. - Congrats on your feature at Gen X Quilters, it was great to learn some more about you :)

Hey! I just saw you at Gen X! That was fun to read about you! I love that "deal". I want to make a beautiful window pillow like yours!

For your hexagons, try to find a Creative Memories Hexagon punch (discontinued now, but a consultant near you may still have one). It punches the perfect hexie out of cardstock or old Christmas cards. Or a scrapbooking store may have a similar punch. Good luck!
