Bright Christmas and Coquito!

Hopefully you’ve seen (and been inspired to purchase!) digital-print fabrics under our Hoffman Spectrum. We introduced our first digital-print line last year with Flora Bonita. This group, followed by Wanderlust and then Trapezium, have been scooped up by quilters like the proverbial hotcakes. Why? Digital printing allows an unlimited number of colors and captures very complex artistic details.

We are super excited to offer our first digitally printed holiday collection for the 2015 season. Bright Christmas presents gorgeous poinsettias, fabulous textures and delicate line-drawn art. The artwork has a vintage feel yet gives a modern vibe thanks to a current color palette of maroon, coral, lime green and event a touch of pink.

The three fabrics in Bright Christmas are paired with colors selected from our Style 1895 Bali Watercolors, hand-dyed, our long-running collection of hand-dyed blender fabrics that complement both batiks and prints. All combined, we envision fantastic quilts with Bright Christmas and home fashions like a modern holiday tablecloth.

And on that holiday table, you’ll find a pitcher of “coquito,” a coconut rum eggnog that has become a favorite at the office. There are many recipes for coquito, which originated in Puerto Rico and is a very popular holiday drink from Thanksgiving through January.  Here it is:
