Winter Wonderland

Posted on: December 17th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Thank YOU for helping to celebrate 10 years of Sew Fresh Quilts!

Today, I would like to introduce to you, my final pattern release for 2022…

Winter Wonderland!

For my background, I chose Snow Drops from the Most Wonderful Time of the Year collection by Jane Dixon for Michael Miller Fabrics from Quilting by Design in new Hamburg, Ontario.

I made the 25 Snow Globes version, which finishes at 62″ x 68″.

Snow Globes using 16 blocks finishes 50” x 55”.

And using 9 blocks finishes 38” x 42”.

Snowballs using 25 blocks finishes 62” x 62”.

Ornaments using 5 blocks 54” x 54”.

The Winter Wonderland pattern consists of 25 winter designs and includes 5 quilt settings.

Instructions include how to make the basic Snowball blocks that finish 10” square.

Adding a BASE to Snowball blocks, creates Snow Globe blocks that finish 10” x 12”

Adding a CAP to Snowball blocks, creates Ornament blocks that finish 10” x 12”

The STRING between the Bow and Ornament is 10” square and the BOW is 8” x 10”

Looks like this will be my first finish in the New Year!!!

Today I am also celebrating the 10th Blogiversary of Sew Fresh Quilts….

My first post was written on December 24th of 2012. It was more of a New Year’s resolution post than a quilting post, but I kept my promises to myself and then made another New Year’s resolution type post the following year. And since then, it has become a tradition to make a post each year…. to celebrate how “It’s a Wonderful Life”!

Ten years of quilting/blogging has meant an accumulation of lots of stuff. Fabric of course. And many, many quilts. But best of all, these years have given me the opportunity to make so many, many friends. You are my friends and what I treasure above all else in this journey. Your friendship, love and support are what I am truly thankful for this Christmas. You are a gift that is greater than gold – or even fabric!

Having friends like you is what has kept me going through all these years, but ESPECIALLY the last five years. When I shared this post in December 2017, you all rallied behind me when I needed you most.

Things have changed a lot since moving to a new home and starting a new life. And you have been there for me, just like friends are in REAL LIFE. YOU are what makes me look forward to many years to come!
THANK YOU for being here for me!

To celebrate my 10th anniversary, I am having a 50% off sale on MOST PDF patterns in my Etsy Shop.

Wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy Stitching in the NEW YEAR!

    Lorna I just saw your new pattern coming in 23. It is so cute just like this snow globe one. I saw the Texas Quilt museum call to entry theme is “all creatures great and small”. You should enter your original design! Happy new year!
