Do I win an award for the most hackneyed blog post title ever? Yaaaaay!
Should I be heavily fined for mentioning Christmas in October? Probably….but I do have a valid excuse.
My new fabric design at Spoonflower features stylized lino print snowflakes in a connecting but broken pattern. It is perfect for crafts, quilting and making lovely gifts for your loved ones, so I’m mentioning it now because that stuff takes time to make.
As you can see from the above picture, the design is available in 20 colors: choose from soft neutral colors, pastels, brights, darks and the traditional red. You can buy everything from an 8” x 8” test swatch, to a fat quarter, to full yards/meters.
If you’re in the UK/Europe, don’t worry about ordering from a US based company. Spoonflower also has a manufacturing facility in Berlin, so there will be no import charges.
Oh, and if you’re into quilting, I have made some ‘cheater quilts’ fabric from both this design and from my Lino Stars pattern. The ‘cheater quilts’ consist of the prints at various mixed scales in 6” squares, so you don’t need to piece anything together.
The squares have a very faint shaded line between them, and you can either use the fabric as it is, sew along the lines/borders for a square padded effect or add a few stitches at the corner of each square (my favourite option) for a softer quilted look. The last option is also a great option for kids if they want to make a Christmas gift for a friend or family member.
