Christmas in June/July!

Hello Dear Friends,

Hope your summer is going well!

We just had a wonderful event here at
the Strain household.

Scott and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary
by going on a "Once in a Lifetime" trip!
We visited Turkey,Greece and Italy
and saw some amazing places.

 The Amalfi coast of Italy was breathtaking!

Santorini, Greece was one of the most 
beautiful places that we have been...

While we were gone, something else really exciting
My new Christmas line from Moda
was delivered to your favorite
Quilt Store!
I am so pleased with 
"Christmas Countdown."
The colors are rich, traditional red, greens
and whites.
The panel is actually an advent
calendar, with each block numbering
the days until Christmas!

I really can't decide which colorway 
I like the best...I like them all!

Patterns include ornaments, snowflakes and holiday
polka  dots and damask.

And the pre-cuts are wonderful.
Moda always does such a good job with

Now, for a little contest!
