More Simply Christmas & Giveaway Too!


Happy Friday! This week has been about Christmas in July. In case you missed the first part of the post, read all about Holly Hill Quilt Designer Mary Jane Carey's new collection, "Simply Christmas" here.

We thought that we would make it a fun start to the weekend by having a giveaway of Mary Jane Carey's latest collection of "Simply Christmas." You can enter here and on Facebook. Make sure that you share this with your friends so that they can enter to win too! All you have to tell us is your favorite holiday colors. Do you like traditional reds and greens or are you more fashion forward and love turquoise or fuchsia? Have a another color combination? Let us know. There is no right or wrong answer. We want to hear what you love. Comment here on the blog or on Facebook by Thursday, July 31, 2014 at midnight and we will select a winner on Friday. We will randomly select a winning entry. Good luck!

Here's a look at the entire collection. She designed a beautiful quilt pattern that is free for you to download by clicking here.





Do you want to see what else Mary Jane has sent along? We shared some of her projects here on the blog the other day.  All photos courtesy of Mary Jane Carey/Holly Hill Quilt Designs.

Have a great weekend.

While I do enjoy the traditional red and green, lately I've been mixing it up by including some prints with aqua, lime green and a bit of pink.

I am more into traditional colors for Christmas. Seeing blue and pink in Christmas fabric makes me shy away. Just my taste.

Lynda said...

I like shades of blues and silvers and whites for the holidays, but I am also liking the simplicity of the patterns in this line - may just have to get me some if I don't win some.

Red and green are my Christmas colors.

Joanna said...

Unfortunately, I like every color combination, be it gold and cream, red and green, midnight blue and gold, whatever. If the theme is Christmas and the print or design is lovely, then I'll probably like it.

Dorian said...

Oh wow a great fabric line! It contains my favorite Christmas fabrics, traditional reds/greens and white. I enjoy a bit of blue and silver too!

VickiT said...

My first choice is a traditional red and green, usually in the deeper, rich tones of those colors. Of course the sparkle of silver and gold are always added in. In the past few years on many blogs I've seen some amazing holiday projects using turquoise, lime green, and a bright red that I have really loved.

Of course, my Christmas tree is purple. lol
