Snowmen are made for wool

You know, don’t you, that I’ve got this thing for wool?   I don’t want you to think I’m giving up on fabric, because applique is my passion and I’ve got new patterns coming very soon.  It’s just fun to mix fabric and wool together sometimes, especially when those Moda designers keep coming up with such cute fabric.

My booth happened to be right across from Lisa at Primitive Gatherings last market, so not only was I looking at wool all day, I was looking at her dang cute Snowman Gathering fabric!  Who could resist that combination?

I took a jelly roll, charm pack and some of that fabulous yardage and we re-made Postcard Cuties for Winter using Lisa’s fabric.  We added a fat quarter of wool for the snowmen.  The pattern has been updated and is finally ready to go.   The fabric and wool combination gives the quilt a “primitive” look and I swear those snowmen were made for wool.

Postcard Cuties for Winter

 The jelly roll makes it FUN!   There’s something about opening up one of those rolls and just stitching away.  I’m waiting on yardage to arrive and then we’ll put some kits together for this quilt.  I’ll keep you posted.
