I already have Under the Mistletoe and Holly's Tree Farm and I love love love them both. I also spotted Cold Spell Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts, Evergreen by BasicGrey and Jingle by Kate Spain. Too many, though to pick a favorite for my favorite holiday.

Hildy said...

Holly's Tree Farm by Sweetwater is on my list as is Mistletoe Lane and Merry Matryoshka. Can't have just one!

Andrea York said...

I have some charm packs in Hollys Tree Farm and Very Merry but would definitely like to get some Tinsel-so cute and retro!

Cynthiacc said...

I love the Festive Collection by Jo Clark, will be ordering that soon!

RobinRiley said...

I really love Evergreen by Basic Grey and I must have the Grunge fabrics that go with it! I also really like Joy & Wonder by Cori Dantini,
Kim Diehl's Winter Blessings and Cold Spell Prints and Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts. I can't believ Christmas is less than 5 months away.

Rebecca said...

It is so hard to pick just one. I really love all of Kate Spain's Christmas Fabrics and have Jingle on my wishlist. Close second would be Holly's Tree Farm, in part because of the cute quilt in Winter Wonderland.

Dana Gaffney said...

I really love Berries and Blooms by Hoffman in all of the colors and of course Kate Spain's Jingle.

Gretchen said...

I love my Christmas fabrics metallic and glitzy. I think all the versions of Holiday Flourish are my faves.

Sheryl Vitosh said...

I love the reds in Holiday Magic!

Esther Grimes said...

All the trimmings...so different from the classy Christmas decor I have now.

Tinsel and Hollys Tree Farm speak to me as happy fabrics to use for Christmas patterns

Shasta Matova said...

Thanks for the chance for a giveaway! My favorite collection is Always the Season.

I am smitten with Santa Express. The reindeer faces are adorable and I love the colors. I loved working with Little Joys and plan to make a lap quilt to go with my wallhanging but may have to add Santa Express to my shopping list!

Kathy said...

I like the Berries and Blooms collections, but I also like Cold Spell because I love blue. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Kathy said...

So hard to choose my favorite collection out of all the wonderful fabrics. I have three that I really like: Joyeux Noel, Christmas Whimsy and Frosty Forest.

LZ said...

I love the colors of Jingle by Kate Spain. Her fabric collections always catch my eye.

Brenda Kowalski said...

I'm smiiten with Frolic in the snow. However, there are so many adorable fabrics to choose from. My favorite color is blue so of course I have to order Cold Spell, especially the Batiks.

Anita Konzak said...

The Hoffman Alchemy - Ice Silver has definitely caught my eye. I love shimmery quilts and projects hanging everywhere over the Christmas holidays.

Connie Cain said...

Winter All the Trimmings by Michael Miller Fabrics has caught my eye. I love the penguins! :)

Tempe said...

The Evergreen collection appeals to my traditional streak. The Joyeux Noel satisfies my love of French General. And the Frosty Forest would make my son with a raccoon obsession very happy. So many lovelies from which to choose!

Marjorie Nath said...

I really like the Ice Silver Alchemy Pop
Hoffman Fabrics collection.

Bonnie said...

Karen said...

Do I have to pick just one? I like several that are quite different from one another -- Festive Forest by Tamara Kate, Sweetwater's Holly's Tree Farm, Scandi Christmas, Under the Mistletoe by 3 Sisters, and the sweet Winter Wonderland by Heather Rosas. I admit to already having some Holly's Tree Farm in my stash. :-)

I love Holly's Tree Farm! So darn cute!

Kathy Erickson said...

I am completely smitten with Antique Holiday Flourish 10 inch Squares

I like all the trimmings yardage, tangly lights. I have a project in mind for this fabric.

I love love love Holly's Tree Farm! I would love to make my first Christmas quilt with this fabric! I am a new quilter and love looking at all this fabric! So exciting!

Pam said...

OK, call me crazy, but I would most definitely LOVE to get one of the Christmas fabric grab bags. I am nuts about grab bags and remnant ends of fabric. I love them! I guess because I scrap quilt and paper piece and makes lots of little things those pieces of fabric no one wants to mess with are just my style!

Kay Eubank said...

On my wish list is Jingle by Kate Spain and Holly's Tree Farm. Love Christmas fabric

Nancy Anne said...

Cold Spell by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda but please don't ask me to choose between the prints or the batiks because I love them both!!

Peggy Wilson said...

I have already used Holly's Tree Farm in making your Layers of Charm pattern. Now just to figure out how to quilt it on my new Tiara II quilting machine I received for my birthday Today! Kind of scary!

Beth said...

I have been eyeing Cold Spell batiks as well as the prints.

Tammie said...

So many great ones to choose from... But I think I LOVE the Frolic in the Snow Collection the best.

misty s said...

The Glisten collection is really pretty. I think I could do a lot with that! But Holly's Tree Farm is one I've had my eye on for a while now.

Cindy Dahlgren said...
