I am excited to share with you CHRISTMAS IN JULY PATTERN PARADE BLOG HOP. We have gotten together as a group to share with you tutorials, projects and Christmas patterns. While it may be July, it is the perfect time to start on those Christmas quilts and projects. One of my favorite patterns didn't start as a a Christmas Quilt, but it was the perfect pattern to make for Christmas. Here is the original pattern, IN THE ARMS OF THE ANGELS
For Christmas I changed the background color, then added Holly Leaves, Ribbon Streamers and Holly Berries. The pattern comes with the full alphabet and templates for the Christmas version.
And last, and maybe the best part of The Christmas in July Blog Hop is a fun free project. It doesn't have a name yet, suggestions are welcome, but for now I am calling it COLLAGE WREATH.
Here is a quick tutorial with photos.
If you want a more complete TUTORIAL ON COLLAGE AND THIS COLLAGE WREATH, check out my Youtube video. To check out more videos, subscribe to Cotton Street Commons Youtube Channel.
