Pixie Noel for me + you

Do you find yourself, year after year, wishing you had time to make Christmas stockings, a tree skirt, a wreath, and All The Things when the holidays are near?   I think my ability to deflect these sort of longings declines as holiday cheer mounts!  We expect this baby to arrive sometime during the week of Thanksgiving.  When I realized that the new baby and the holidays will descend at once, that set things in quick perspective.

Clearly, if anything is going to get done, it needs to happen before. Christmas shopping, holiday sewing, the works.

happy, happy quilted Stockings!
stockings for a friend, circa 2014

So here I am in June thinking stockings!  Luckily the fabric industry obliges with holiday collections releasing each summer.  (It's as if they know something about the holiday rush...)  A new collection from Riley Blake landed on my radar about a month ago, and I have not been able to get it out of my mind.  Have you seen Pixie Noel by Tasha Noel?  It's pure cuteness.  Pure elves, bunnies, carols and candy stripes cuteness.  I. cannot. resist.

Pixie Noel for Stockings

Here are my seven picks: elves times two, one helping of light pink bunnies, striped stockings and some cheery basics.  There are lots more fun choices, but I don't need an army for stockings, right?  Right.

supporting fabrics

This morning I found some supporting fabrics from my stash.  I'm thinking of this set of patchwork stockings I made for a friend in 2014.  Each one must be unique, not all will be patchwork and mixing in non-holiday fabrics suits my style.

Pixie Noel for Stockings

I'm starting off with XOXO from Cotton & Steel paired with that candy cane Pixie Noel stripe.


::Giveaway::  Would you like to get a jump start on the holidays too?  Fat Quarter Shop is offering a complete fat quarter set of Pixie Noel to one lucky reader.  International entries are welcome!  For your chance to win, just add your comment to this post now through noon EST on Wednesday.

Good luck!

  1. I too want to make ALL the things, but last year I took pictures of all the things I've already made and let's say I was surprised at how much there was. Have fun with your stockings!

  2. Love it! I have some unformed ideas about making stockings for my family someday.

  3. I always love to see the Christmas pre-fun on blogs!
    I’m working on a Christmas appliqué quilt, which will surely take some time to finish! It was a special request from the husband, who loves traditional Christmas decorations.

  11. Fun! It's hard to think of the holidays when it's 90 degrees outside, but it's true that once the rush sets in, there's just no time for everything. I've planned stockings for years and have yet to make some. Thanks for the opportunity! Ruth ruth_hase@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have also been thinking about making some stockings with this fabric! Haven't gotten any yet though.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm just the same! Every year I think I will get round to the stockings, tree skirt, advent calendar etc and every year it doesn't quite happen. I did manage 18 out of 24 advent stockings last year so that felt like a win! So only 6 to do this year, surely that's doable?! Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. I fail every year at making holiday items for my family. I'm good at getting gifts made on time, but decorations and the like fall to the wayside. Maybe this year...

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's really smart to make some stockings now and have them when the season starts. And your fabrics are bautiful and perfect for it. I have Camille's stocking pattern for years now and perhaps this will be the year when I finally make them ... wish me luck;-)

    ReplyDelete

Making Christmas stuff in the middle of the yr is an excellent idea!

  182. We are in june already!!! This year has gone so fast already, It is the perfect time to start Christmas quilting, It is winter in Australia at the moment so it feels right to be making a Christmas quilt now, I have always wanted to make one but making a Christmas quilt in December in the heat just doesnt feel the same.
