Oh my oh my oh my oh Winterkist!

August 9th, 2012

I am so excited about my newest line Winterkist being in stores any day now! And just as exciting, Katie of There & Back is having a Winterkist blog hop! I die. When Katie told me she wanted to do a hop with Winterkist I pretty much was in awe and disbelief that she wanted to use my little ole fabric. Thrilled, gobsmacked, disbelief, honored… am I dreaming??!

HOLY COW - Katie’s assembled an amazing bunch of sewists and crafters making beautiful things with Winterkist.  So not only are there great projects to be seen, I just learned the Fat Quarter Shop is generously giving some fat quarter bundles away for the hop (all the details are here)!  If you’d like to be notified when Winterkist is available at FQS you can do so here.

    Omg, I cannot wait to get my paws on this fabric and I know my girl is beyond excited to add to her gnoma addiction.

    Quilty goodness coming up with these lovely fabrics. :D

  6. The fabulous Karin allegedly said:

    hopefully the quality of the fabric is better with this new line - I bought a FQB of Holiday Happy, and was not impressed with how thin the fabric is. I love the prints SO much though, and I now remembered that I cut it into charms and have yet to make that Christmas quilt I was going to! I must work on that soon…..

    gah!! so gorgeous Monica!! I am waiting on my FQS email to say Winterkist has landed … really want to finish Ron before I start on my Winterkist Bloom quilt, so I figure it’s lucky I’m all the way over in Australia and will have a bit of a postage wait. More Ron time, before Gnoma time starts. Congratulations, it’s such a gorgeous line, can’t wait. see you, Cat

  11. The fabulous Dana allegedly said:

    Can’t wait until your fabric so I can play too! I love the Gnoma Klauses - so happy we can play with them again!

    Getting lots of virtual exercise running to all the locations on the blog hop! :) This stuff is gonna sell out ASAP so I’ve also got my virtual lawn chair set up at the start of the virtual line. ;)

  14. The fabulous Lemon Tree Tami allegedly said:

    I love those greens .. so vibrant and a good accent. Good luck with the new release!

    I am impressed that you have a black/white colorway with this holiday fabric! Brilliant!

  16. The fabulous M allegedly said:

    Where can I get your Winterkist fabric? I searched the places that I usually order from and nothing comes up.


      Hi M - it’s not out yet, any day now! I’m not sure all what shops are going to be carrying Winterkist, but I do know that Sew,Mama,Sew! and Fat Quarter Shop are for sure so far. If you click on the link above the Fat Quarter Shop images in this post it’ll get you to their notifier. - m

  17. The fabulous Dianne Mitzel allegedly said:

    I don’t know why you are shocked at your fabric being chosen, it’s wonderful! I have loved it since you first let us see it months ago..can’t wait to see it in stores. The little gnomes are wonderful as are the Santas and all the other darling things you’ve incorporated in your designs…sit back and enjoy the glory!!!

  18. The fabulous Cat allegedly said:

    hi Monica - what other online shops will stock Winterkist, do you know yet? I am on FQS’s email-notify-list. And I saw Kerry sewdeerlyloved has some in stock, but mainly as FQ’s. I’ve worked out my Bloom-quilt requirements and am itching to get my order in!! Have decided to go with red, orange, pink, green with a blue gnoma peeking out as the centre Bloom-circle. And my front-solid will be Madrona Road graphite haystack, and the backing fabric will be graphite gnomas yardage!!! Can you picture the Winterkist/Bloom/Madrona Road awesomeness waiting to be made!! gah!! Cat.

      Hi Cat - I don’t know anything unless a shop tells me. Hahaha, you already know more than I do! [seriously, I’m not kidding]. OMG, love the Winterkist/Madrona Road combo for your Bloom quilt! Just let out a big squeal! - m

    I’m sending this on to my daughter who … much to my chagrin … does NOT sew. This could be the very project to tip her to the other side.


Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
