Henry Glass Designers Progressive Dinner Party - Day 6 Jan Shade Beach




Meet Jan Shade Beach

Meet Jan Shade Beach, a designer who LOVES Christmas. Jan has two collections this holiday season that were released in October and will ship into quilt shops in May 2018. Put both on your wishlist! 

Holiday Wishes Collection



Frosty Friends 2-ply Flannel



Favorite Christmas Memory

My son, Kyle, moved to the Netherlands from 2011-2015 to get his PhD in Aerospace Science.  He was so many time zones ahead and seemed so far away.  We couldn’t wait for him to come home for Christmas each year, but especially that first year.  I decided to make several signs to hold and have everyone wear Christmas hats to the airport to pick him up.  There were many families there to pick up their loved ones, but no one was quite as excited as we were.  Before long the whole crowd at the airport waiting was anxious for us to be reunited with Kyle.  When my son turned the corner and saw us all there waiting his face lit up and he was smiling from ear to ear.  Everyone cheered and hugged . . . . . it was the best moment ever!
 
Jan Shade Beach and family welcome home her son, Kyle.

I love these Reds and Grays. Did you know these would be great fabrics to use in a new baby quilt. Babies first really see well the colors and shades of Reds, Grays and Blacks. Then their eyes keep getting better and better and distinguishing more and more colors and their shades. Very beautiful wintery Christmas fabrics and I love them all. Thank you from me, Lauralee Hensley for letting us enjoy the beauty of all the fabrics all these days so far.

What a cute story. I do love these fabrics. The red truck is just iconic. Thanks.

cpentzer said...

Christmas is made from love, the love of God passed on to us and passed from us to family. Our family won't be quite complete this year as our son and his family have moved to Georgia. We are in Idaho. Thank heaven for Skype! We look forward to a reunion like the one your family had. In the meantime, we will enjoy our family members who are still within easy travel distance, including my 93 year old mom. And I will enjoy using some of my holiday time quilting.

Lee said...

What wonderful memories! Thank you for sharing !!

Judy1522 said...

Your fabrics are beautiful! I enjoyed reading your story and it reminded me about how I felt the first year my son moved to the opposite coast. Yes, the first year was the hardest.
