I love Glitter Houses, and I’ve collected many throughout the years. I have a vintage collection mixed in with new, and my Christmas decorating always centers around these houses. My newest fabric line, Sugar Plum Christmas, has a soft side that you can see when you combine the pink, gray, and ivory fabrics. These are the fabrics I used to create Glitter Houses, one of my new quilts. In shades of pink and gray it’s going to be a shabby chic, pink Christmas! I’ve embellished Glitter Houses with crystals and pearls that sparkle with highlights when reflected in the light. If you love pink and grey as much as I do, you’ll have so much fun making Glitter Houses!
Some of you may not realize it, but in order to meet Moda’s deadlines, I work from a digital file that I create before the actual quilt. Once the sample yardage arrives, we work like crazy to make the quilt in time for Quilt Market. Glitter Houses will be back from market soon, and then I’ll send it to my photographer Gregory Case for an actual photo. Until then, I hope you enjoy my digital creation below.
You can embellish Glitter Houses with your own collection of crystals, beads and pearls. Start collecting these now because the stores are stocked with holiday sparkles this time of year. I used Swarovski crystals and pearls, but you can use any that catch your eye. If you keep them around 3mm to 4mm in size they’ll be perfect. We’ll have the Cosmo Metallic Thread that I used to embroider the snowflakes on this quilt, on our website soon. The pattern will be available in January and the fabric ships to quilt shops in April.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
