Christmas In July

Are you thinking about Christmas yet?

Maybe it's the string quilt I'm working on for my friend's wedding. More likely it's the long list o' gifts I want to make and I'm determined to get them done well before December 23rd.

Some of them have to be done before December 1st. Like this tree skirt:

I pinned it last December and I must have one this year. Here are my fabric choices, all from Michael Miller:


I have a serious fabric crush on Michael Miller. It all started with this fabric:

Isn't that the cutest fabric EVER? I made an apron, a Christmas stocking and I fussy cut it to make a quilt. It's my favorite and I can't find any more of it. But it has been years.

I'll do two ruffles of white, maybe a white tonal stripe or snowflake print or something. I don't do a lot of green - I prefer all red and white for Christmas.

So, what do you think? What are you working on for Christmas this year?


  1. I love red and white fabric! These are fantastic! Michael Miller does the best Christmas fabric! I agree.

  2. The worst thing about Michael Miller fabric, is they get sold out. The best thing is, there is always some new and adorable coming out!

  3. I love that bottom fabric! Red and white is a great choice!

  4. Christmas? Oh gosh! I will let you know after Halloween what is coming for Christmas.

    I do look forward to seeing the tree skirt sewn up. It's sure to be great!
