Christmas Kitsch Quilt + Giveaway

Hooray for Fridays!  We've had a busy week here at my house, with our summer winding down quickly and the first day of school not far away.  We're trying to squeeze in as much fun as we can these last few days of vacation.

Today I'm sharing a quilt made from the new Christmas Kitsch fabric line (designed by Anna Griffin for Blend fabrics).


There's been a blog hop going on all month showing all sorts of inspiration - and I get the honor of being the final stop on the blog hop!


The Christmas Kitsch prints are so fun!  I just love that Santa print on red, and the retro Christmas trees too.  They bring back memories of spending Christmas afternoon at my Grandma's house.



I wanted all of those fun prints to be the real star of my quilt so I kept the design straightforward - can't go wrong with simple squares set on point, right?  


Hey - you want to win a fat quarter bundle of Christmas Kitsch?  Blend Fabrics is generously giving one of you a FQ bundle of the full line of Christmas Kitsch!  To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below.  Giveaway closes on Thursday August 11 and I'll announce the winner here on Friday August 12.  (Open to US addresses only)



Be sure to stop by the other blogs that have been on the blog tour - there's been some great projects, and a lot of variety!

  43. I just love this line of fabric and wish that I could win the Fat Quarter bundle! I'm 62 and this brings back so many happy Christmas memories with my mom and dad and my brothers and sisters around our Christmas tree. My dad loved Christmas and was always so excited Christmas Eve to out everything around the tree and forbade us to go downstairs Christmas morning before we woke them up. None of us did afraid that Santa would take our presents back up the chimney if we disobeyed our parents. Then my dad would get his movie camera and go downstairs ready to capture our faces when we came down the stairs. My dad has passed now but we still have all those wonderful pictures and movies to remember him by. Thanks Dad. I would love to make a quilt dedicated to him with your bundle.
