While shopping in your favorite local quilt store recently you may have noticed that Christmas fabrics have hit the shelves. Two of our favorite lines this season are Sweet Christmas by Urban Chiks for Moda and Tinsel by Clairice Gifford for Cloud 9 Fabrics. Both lines have a retro vibe with a modern aesthetic.
Sweet Christmas by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics
Urban Chiks’ Christmas line, Sweet Christmas, echoes and coordinates with the fabrics from Swell Christmas, their collection from last year. The highlight of Sweet Christmas is a Snowman plucked right out of the 1950s. This snowman can be found on one of the prints from the collection, as well as on a 58” x 73” applique panel.
Tinsel by Clairice Gifford for Cloud 9
In Tinsel, Clairice Gifford has created a vibrant and playful collection. The scale of the prints is larger, making for a big visual impact. With steaming cups of cocoa, vintage ornaments for trimming the tree and an atomic-ranch style star, Tinsel promises to keep you content and cozy through the coming wintry nights.
Christmas is around the corner! Get a head start on your holiday projects now with the Sweet Christmas and Tinsel fabric collections. Fabrics are now available online and from brick-and-mortar retailers.
