Ho Ho Ho Merry Fat Quarter Shop Christmas

Hello everybody ~ right this moment there are little elves working for the Fat Quarter Shop sliding down the internet wires to visit all kinds of blogs and see what lovely quilters all over the world have decided to ask Santa for Christmas.

The lists are long and very diverse but oh so much fun to look at. Once the elves get back to Santa on the North Pole, will Santa really be able to decide what wishes he will grant? He promised to do so, and as the members of the Fat Quarter shop said: Pinky-sworn, actually. Everything is soooooooo very pretty and all those bloggers are such kind women. Maybe he will let the elves decide, or chance, or ....... oh well, whatever they decide, I had great fun looking at what I would ask - ho ho ho!

I would choose this pattern and to the pattern I would choose the following fabrics from Love U by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics.

The Pretty Pink Love U Fat Quarter BundleDeb Strain for Moda Fabrics (instead of layer cake)

the Bella Solids Fig Tree Cream Yardage for the background (I would however ask the members of the Fat Quarter Shop which one would fit best. They give great advise and are always very helpful!!!)

Love U Pretty Pink Lottsa Dots Yardage for the sashing and the binding

...the Love U Pretty Pink Who's Who Yardage for the first border ...

and the Love U Pretty Pink Trees In The Park Yardage for the second binding.

Now wouldn't that end up to be a lovely quilt, dear elves!!! If you visit my blog again next year around this time, please let me know. I will make sure that the quilt will be ready by then, if Santa decides to make my wish come true (^-^)

:O) Dear elves, have fun visiting all those other blogs (O:

Ik hoop dat je wint ( eigenlijk niet want ik ga ook meedoen). Of misschien winnen we allebei weer wat ( denk het niet, zoveel geluk zullen we wel niet hebben). Je hebt weer erg leuke kleuren uitgezocht.

Liebe Simone,
dieses Posting habe ich bei google übersezten lassen, bin aber immer noch nicht schlauer als vorher ..... tststs ..... haben sich die Elfen schon bei dir gemeldet?
Vielleicht, wenn du Zeit hast, erklärst du mir die Absichten vom FatQuarterShop, ich verstehe nur "Bahnhof" (so sagt man in Deutschland, wenn man nichts verstanden hat ;-)

Viele liebe Grüße, deine Jutta
