Do I win an award for most hackneyed blog post title ever? Yaaaaay!
Should I be heavily fined for mentioning Christmas in October? Probably...
Well, I do sort of have an excuse for mentioning Christmas so early.
My new fabric desigN at SPoonflower features lino print stylized 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; you can choose from soft neutral colors, pastels, bright colors, dark colors and the traditional red. You can buy anything from an 8" x 8" Test Swatch, to a fat quarter, to full yards/meters.
If you're in the UK or 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 are into quilting, I have made some 'cheater quilts' from this design and from my lino Print 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 gift for a friend or family member.
