It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas in Fabric

Now we have ALL of the pieces in place!  Just as I was inspired again by Nancy Halvorsen’s new book – Ho Ho Ho Let It Snow – we have entered the book, fabric, hangers, and buttons in our system.  Who wouldn’t be inspired after seeing her booth at Spring Market!  Who would have thought that Nancy’s special shade of blue would be the perfect background fabric?

I know this is a lot of pictures, but in this case, a picture is really worth a thousand words.  And I wanted you to see the detail and quality that goes into every one of Nancy’s designs!  There is a reason she is a legend – she is an expert quilter and it shows!!!

Nancy Halvorsen Brings Joy to the Holiday Season

Her unique style crosses all generations and appeals to everyone.  She has created her own signature in every piece she designs.  When you can instantly look at a project and know it is a Nancy Halvorsen design, you know you have just met a legend!  But with every fabric line and every boo that showcases it, she continues to grow and keeps her finger on the pulse of what is trending.

Ho Ho Ho Let It Snow is no exception.  I noticed a few weeks ago that round pillows were turning up in patterns and home dec magazines.  What is on the cover of Nancy’s new book????  Round pillows with the most adorable snowflake designs.

Item #ATH548B  Retail $19.00

Geometrics and quilts with no defined block patterns are the rage – and look at this feature quilt!  How does she constantly stay ahead of the trends???

Fonts are cutting edge….and look at the lettering on these pillows!

And what adorable ornaments that are showcased on a wire tree!

These little quilts make the perfect gifts – whether you choose to hang them or use them as mug rugs…..

And this is the panel from the fabric line that is featured in the book:  //www.checkerdist.com/products/fabrics?l=8423

We posted the book on our website as soon as we got pictures because we just couldn’t wait to share!  Our buyers are working frantically to get in all of the buttons, hangers, and other notions that you will need to finish all of the projects in the book.  But pre-order the book now so you will have plenty in stock when the fabric arrives.

And, Nancy, thank you for making us smile once again!
