Don't faint... I've been sewing again.
And now I am enjoying this wonderful Winter guy this year.
I found him at the Madison, WI Quilt Expo this last September. I NEVER buy quilt kits. NEVER. But I loved the fabrics he was made up with. I immediately asked if they had him in a kit. YES! And of course it was the last one. They didn't need that sales pitch because I was going to buy it no matter what. LoL
I thought he was wearing a ball cap until I gave the pattern a good look. This is when I discovered he is a basket.
I don't much care for the basket idea so I changed him up giving him his top hat. I adore him! I love that he's festive enough for Christmas and not-so-much Christmasy that he can remain hanging all through Winter.
The fabric collection is blitzen by basicgrey for Moda
The pattern is Sue's Snowman Basket by Jan Patek Quilts Inc.
He's out of storage now and all made up. That fits right into my plan to get stuff out of storage and all made up.
