    Hi

    For my Quilt Club Exchange Christmas - My Bag that I got has Candy Canes, Stockings -red/white ones, Goldish/Tanish Hearts and Stars, Christmas Trees - Green/Red ones.

    What material can I get to make a Quilt out of that will represent the Bag that I got.

    I've been looking at Connecting Threads site but I haven't found anything that pertains to my Bag.

    I would love to get Charm Packs so I don't have to cut my Squares.

    If you can help me out on this I would very much appreciate it...In the meantime I'll keep looking too.

    I would love to make a Candy Cane Quilt - I think that would be neat myself.

    "My Bag that I got has Candy Canes, Stockings -red/white ones, Goldish/Tanish Hearts and Stars, Christmas Trees - Green/Red ones. "

    Let's see:
    Candy Canes - You can cut red/white striped fabric on the bias for the binding, or applique

    Stockings - Applique would make these stand out, maybe even some fluffy white minky for the top

    Hearts and Stars - try quilters cache for block patterns for different hearts and star blocks

    Christmas Trees - Oh, these can be fun! Look for free patterns for the trees. You can embellish with sequins for the ornaments or try 'couching' some funky yarn for the garland.

    Just some ideas..... I'm sure other people will soon chime in here and help ya out!
