I needed a birthday gift for my BFF out there in Moose Jaw. I wanted a pattern and some fabric. After I selected a piece that I wanted for myself, I turned around and saw a pattern on the rack.
Then I looked to see the pattern maker and started to laugh. The pattern is from Moose Jaw. Heck, she could drive to the store and pick it up.
Then I looked around for some fabric.
I spotted this on a shelf for the background. I think it's great as the snowmen will pop! The embroidery can be done in white thread and it will pop too.
The fabric feels like a batik, but I don't think it is. I'll have to check that out the next time I'm over.
I love to make my snowmen with flannel. They just look so much "warmer" than if they are done with cotton. This flannel is fabulous!
It is from Trend-Tex and it is called Maple Flannel Basics.
It has the most luxurious feel to it. It looks like wool! I need more of it for my stash.
I bundled the whole thing up with a width of orange/rust fabric. Jan can use it for the noses on the snowmen.
I bought the pattern for myself too so we can stitch along together. It is a big pillow -- 18 x 33 so it will be great on my sofa for my afternoon snoozes!
I purchased everything at the quilt shop in Burlington.
on Pearl Street.
