Create Family Memories With Kimberbell's Cup of Cheer Advent Quilt!
Have you heard the buzz about Kimberbell's new Cup of Cheer Advent Quilt? If you're thinking, "Hmmm, it's darling but I don't really need another Christmas quilt..."
You see, Cup of Cheer isn't a quilt you just hang on the wall for decor (although we absolutely love quilts you hang on the wall for decor). But this particular quilt is so much more than that.
It's the quilt memories are made of. Why?
Because this 42 x 58” heirloom quilt counts down to Christmas with 25 interactive designs! It's literally an advent calendar in quilt form, with a different activity to enjoy every day.
For example, maybe one day you'll hang a stocking and the next day you'll unzip a present to find a special surprise. Each and every day is a delightful discovery for you and your loved ones!
Let's take a close look at the 25 activities and traditions you and your family can enjoy season...after season...after season with Cup of Cheer!
Unzip the present to find a note, candy, or activity coupon. What could you put in there? Tickets to a Christmas concert? A service coupon for a foot rub? A favorite scripture?
Add "marshmallow" Wool Felt Balls to the cocoa mug. (They stick easily on hook & loop dots!) Also notice the stitched steam swirl above and the background quilting design with tiny mugs.
Speaking of which, look forward to building your library with the Cup of Cheer Background Quilting Bundle (sold separately and coming soon)!
Hang three jingle bells from the darling holly button. (Leaves are made of soft Embroidery Felt!)
Untie the ribbon bow and find a small treat or present. (Again, what would you tie here? A candy cane? A toy?)
Add the dimensional, foamy cup of cheer (With a striped straw! How cute is that?) to the block.
Find a note, candy, or activity coupon in the window of the house. (Yep, it's actually a tiny pocket!)
Days Seven, Eight, & Nine
Add little lace ornaments to the tree for three consecutive days. (They just hang right on the Cute as a Buttons!)
Tuck the snowman into the cozy mitten. (DARLING!) ⛄
Add a beautiful bow of crimson Velveteen to the top of the wreath.
Slip the dimensional candy cane in the mug pocket. And for a REAL cup of cheer, you might try our Home for the Holidays Gourmet Hot Cocoa recipe HERE or our Cup of Cheer Wassail recipe HERE!
Hang the first stocking on the string. (The little clothespins are included in the Cup of Cheer Embellishment Kit!)
Add the musical heart for the finishing touch! The included sound button plays, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" when pushed.
Note: The sound button is in the Cup of Cheer Embellishment Kit!
Waiting for Christmas Day...
By December 25, the whole quilt is complete. What a fun way to "deck the halls," right? And not only did you have darling decor for the holidays, but you also made treasured memories along the way.
Just curious...what is YOUR favorite block?
