I can never get enough snowmen.  There’s just something about the little guys that makes me happy!

When I was at Fall market last October I saw Lisa’s Snowman Gatherings fabric and I had to have it. Now, a few months later, we’ve turned it into a new version of Postcard Cuties for Winter! We made the snowmen from wool and used a jelly roll, charm pack and a bit of yardage for the remainder of the quilt.

 

Postcard Cuties for Winter

I’m busy updating the pattern and the new version should be ready in a few weeks.  The fabric doesn’t ship until April so you’ll have to wait a bit.  We hope to have kits for this super cute quilt and I’ll keep you updated.

Reading on my iPad…

Have to share the most current book I’m reading…it’s quite by accident that I found it.  I saw it on a bestseller list and downloaded a sample to my iPad.  I really had no interest in a story about Charles Lindberg, but the author, Melanie Benjamin, caught my interest right away.  It’s really about Anne Morrow Lindberg and told from her point of view.

A nice change from my usual murder mysteries, The Aviator’s Wife is a good read.

Here’s another tip!

Watch for the April Issue of American Patchwork & Quilting…

…because our very own Moda Lissa has a quilt on the cover!  Dang she is talented!  Just look at this beauty.

This is her second cover issue!  Everyone I know wanted to make her quilt when it graced the cover in October 2010…
