Mod Holiday (Every Time You Use Pink for Christmas, an Angel Gets Their Wings)

I think all of you know by now that I like bridging the divide between modern and traditional. There are more connections between the two than there are differences. One only has to look again.

Pink for Christmas!?

So, when Benartex asked me to curate a perfectly modern bundle of six fabrics for their Modern by the Yard e-mag, I agreed enthusiastically. That aligns perfectly with my Quilty Philosophies.

By the way, this mag is loaded to the brim with modern quilt patterns! Packed.

I call my bundle Mod Holiday because it’s a jazzed up spin on Christmas. In the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing a super fun and fast Christmas block that you can make into a wall hanging, a throw pillow, or a full-on cuddly quilt to wrap up in while you unwrap your gifts and sip your eggnog this December.

A little taste… Here are two of the six fabrics in my bundle… head over to Modern by the Yard (page 7) for the full details!
