"'Tis the Season" from The Pattern Basket is ready to welcome Winter! The pattern is $10.00. I used 2 Jelly Rolls from the new Moda line "Merry and Bright" for the trees and stars. It also requires 4 yards for the background and borders and 3/4 yard for the binding. I used the diaganol red and white candy cane stripe from the fabric line for the binding. It is 56 1/2" by 57 1/2". Nikki Crisp (360-319-2914) quilted it with an edge to edge swirling snowflake pattern for $75.00. The background is actually white with snowdots, even though it looks cream in this photo.
...and this new Autumn wool project comes from Wooden Spool Designs. The $9.00 pattern, "Happy Halloween" comes with 9 wool applique blocks, but I wanted to use this fun frame ($24.95) so I picked 6 of the blocks.
I hope you are enjoying the changing of the Season. It has been so beautiful here. Last night there was a double rainbow in the sky. My granddaughters and I had spent time reading the story of Noah and the Ark and made 3D construction paper rainbows with cotton ball clouds and then out came the double rainbow! A good reminder that even though it has been a difficult 20 months for many people, there is still so much to hope for in the future! And beauty to surprise us when we aren't expecting it.
