Winter Wonderland



What's more fun than watching a winter wonderland outside your window? Stitching a Winter Wonderland! This past winter, we joined with a group of twelve talented wool appliqué designers to create a fun mystery sew-a-long for you. Each of the block patterns have been released as a free digital download, and finishing patterns by Mary Jane Carey of Holly Hills Designs are being presented. Additionally, each designer is offering wool kits for purchase, as well as embellishment kits and/or thread kits. Join our Winter Wonderland Facebook group for more information, updates, and interactions with fellow stitchers on our winter adventure. Be sure to check out the designers' websites to meet them and see what they are doing! And get those free downloads quickly, while they are still free!

Week #6: Baby,It's Cold Outside!

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside!” Because of that, our snowman maker couldn’t fight the temptation of a warm, cozy fire, thus leaving the happy snowman just a bit unfinished. This wintry block is embellished with many charming details—from the glowing fire and snow-topped trees to a basket full of all that is needed to make the snowman complete. Maybe when it warms up a tad, our snowman maker can finish the snowman, or take a turn around the pond with his skates, or maybe even a quick sled ride down the hill. Dimensional wool appliqué, embroidery, and embellishment help you tell this winter wonderland story from a stitching perspective!  The finished block size is 12 inches square.
