|The blocks finish up at 4"x5 1/2".|
I ordered this kit when I attended Winter Retreat in January of 2013 with Lisa Bongean. It was my first experience with Wool applique and I learned from the master. Our project was actually two blocks from the larger version of Warm Winter Blessings, but I realized I wouldn't have anywhere to display a quilt that size, so after making those blocks I stopped and waited for the motivation to make the mini version.
Continuing with the snowman theme, I made a new little ornament.
This is a free paper pieced pattern from Carol Doak's website that I reduced. DD#1 sent me this cool winter tree ornament and I made the snowman to go with it. I may make another one and face it in the opposite direction. You can click the photos to get a better view.
I don't have another snowman, but what about a snow-lamb?
free pattern Old Glory Gatherings. This is the sixth lamb I have made for this series.
If you missed my last post I want to make sure you get the word. This beautiful snowflake pattern from last year's Row By Row Experience is now available on the designer's Etsy and Craftsy pages, as a digital download for only $3.50.
Okay, let's get down to the winners of the drawing.
