Mmmmm....fabric - Christmas edition

I know it's only Halloween (not even, really) but is anyone else getting geared up for Christmas yet? Not in the sense of braving the shopping malls or decking the halls and all that jazz, but with your crafting. My brain is all aflutter with ideas, especially when I see such fun fabrics out there.

I may buy this to make an 'Attic Windows' quilt...someday. I'm inspired by this one.
The print is by Michael Miller and is called 'Snow Chateau.'

I'm in love with the retro rosy cheeks of these tots. Timeless Treasures 'Merry Christmas Retro.'
(The above prints can be found here).

I'm such a sucker for the sweets--this one is 'Christmas Candy' by A. E. Nathan. I wonder how long it took them to come up with THAT name.

 'It's Snow Fun' by South Sea Imports

 'Classic Christmas Yule Trees' by Michael Miller. This one reminds me of the scene in "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown" where Linus and Chuck go shopping for a tree.

This one is 'At Home for the Holidays' by Henry Glass and Co. It's so very simple and Scandinavian looking--it makes me crave hot chocolate.

 'Holly Holiday Holly and Berries' by Northcott. Such a classic print, doncha think?

 This 'Christmas in Baltimore Album' print by P and B Textiles will make it look like you spent a gazillion hours appliqueing. There's even a matching floral stripe for the border available.
The above fabrics can be found here. 

I need to stop. After my recent load-up of Christmas fabrics I imposed a fabric ban on myself, but when I see all these it makes my "Complete Order" finger twitch a little. Since I imposed the ban I suppose I can lift it, but that wouldn't be very disciplined now, would it? Maybe if I'm a good girl Santa will drop this in my stocking:

  1. Thanks so much for your comments on my blog, they always cheer me up. I sometimes wonder if there is anyone out there reading my blog so it is good to know there are people out there having a wee look.

  2. The second from top is my favourite...so sweet and nostalgic... I need to search for fabrics and start crafting again, I feel like I haven't really done anything since I've started work...not good... Have a lovely end of week, Love from London x

  3. I wonder how long it took them to come up with THAT name. --> You're hilarious. I snorted and giggled. :D

    These are lovely! You know what's better than normal fabric porn? Holiday fabric porn. :D
