FRIDAY ! FREEBIES Winter Themed Projects

Good snowy morning to everyone – well at least those of you, who, like me, are experiencing a very snowy morning. Where I live, this is the first real snow fall. We had a bit of a flurry a few days ago but now it’s snowing in earnest.

A quick note about our seasonal store hours. We will close at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday the 24th and Saturday the 31st. We will be closed on Sunday, the 25th, Monday the 26th and Sunday the 1st and Monday the 2nd. Otherwise, we will be open our regular store hours of 9:30 to 4:30 M-F and 9:30 – 4:00 on Saturdays.

Today’s snowy whiteness has inspired me to offer some winter themed FREEBIES. The first is a classic attic window snowman quilt tutorial. See the whole thing here. It’s rated Intermediate.

I LOOOVE this next one, the Zigzag Snowflake Patch Pillow from designer Pat Sloan. I think it would work well in both green and red, even some other color to match your seasonal décor. You can find the detailed tutorial here. It requires a fusible bonding product but I think the result is worth the trouble of gathering all the necessary parts.

Next – you can download a whole 10-page ebook from McCalls at: http://www.mccallsquilting.com/free-christmas-quilt-patterns. It’s free but you have to give them your email address. My favourite from this book is “Mr. Snowman.” It says you can make it up in a night. Put a flower on the hat and you can have a Ms Snowman.
