My Joys at Christmastime

I have recently learned about a quilters magazine that wrote a little blurb about the Christmas fabric collection that I did with Northcott, The 12 Joys of Christmas. This magazine is Quilters Newsletter ( and the issue is December/January 2011, page 30.

This collection has such sentimental value to me as it really does showcase the joys our family has this time of year. The holiday season will always be filled with gifts, but so many of the gifts this family receives are those of family time together, memories we are making for our kids to look back on, and our own treasured memories of our childhood with family and friends throughout our past. No beautifully wrapped box with a wonderful gift inside can ever replace the cherished moments we share with those we love.

The 12 Joys of Christmas collection does bring me joy, but this season I remixed the color palette to reflect my Sheri Berry color style and every time I get to put a little pink into anything, the joy is enjoyed by me even more. Here are some holiday cards in the new re-pink-mix colorway.

Take this season to find joy in every moment and with every person you spend this holiday with. Have a blessed and joyous season.

Sheri! I almost fell out of my chair! How did I miss this collection??? My local fabric store definitely does not have it! I see the green/red colorway- is the pink in production too? Either way, these fabrics will decorate our home next year for Christmas (the red and green matches what we already have, but the pink would be so cute with Katie's little purple Christmas tree :))

Merry Christmas!

PS Katie has asked for a special Christmas quilt, she saw that some children have a special Christmas quilt in the Pottery Barn Kids catalogue... so that is my plan for these fabrics for her for next year. She will be so surprised!

I bought pieces from your 12 days of Christmas line. LOVE these colors too. The snowflake print with scissors is one of my favorites. I have a project in mind that can be used all winter!

I love these designs of yours! I recently purchased the fabric panel for this design in the original colors and love it. :) Do you think you will ever sell items with this design in the lovely updated colors you used here? Thank you! :)
