I've heard it said that the we think the sweetest things are red. Red drinks, red berries, they all get picked over the not so rosy varieties.
Red catches our eyes.
I think maybe that is why we turn to it in the bleak months of winter. Red mittens, red scarves,
the winter holidays would not be complete without them....without red.
Minick & Simpson did a great job in their latest fabric line for Moda. Midwinter Reds is all of these things - sweet, eye catching, an instant holiday classic.
I am featured on Moda's Bake Shop today with my little quilt, Midwinter Cozy. (I know! How cool is that?!) If you have hopped over from there, welcome. Stick around. Kick the tires. Enjoy yourselves. I'm glad to have you. Even if you are not stopping by from the Bake Shop I'm glad to have you.
In honor of the occasion I am giving away my left over fabric. I have 8 candy charm packs that would love to have a new home. If you would like them....and you know you would...leave a note and tell me about a favorite childhood toy. You have until November 4, at which time I will announce the winner.
Annie is one of mine...she belonged to my mom when she was little. My uncles used to move Annie around while Mom was sleeping. Mom would awake to find her dolly doing all sorts of things. This dolly has a place of honor in my house full of boys...that is why she has a new cuddly quilt to snuggle under!
