Snow & the Ice Habitats Collection December 26, 2014 11:46

Snow covers the ground this day after Christmas in Pueblo West, Colorado.  Time to relax from the busy-ness of the holiday rushing around.  Maybe I'll go after-Christmas shopping some day this week, maybe I'll stay home by the pellet stove fire sipping hot green tea.  

Wintertime is so fun for sewing.  This week I'm featuring my Ice Habitats Collection.  Polar bears, killer whales, penguins, a narwhal, seals, a walrus and a Native Alaskan are featured in this series of quilt blocks.  Conservation was my motivation for designing the entire Habitats Collection - bringing the spotlight to our wonderful creatures on this Blue Jewel of a planet.  Aquas, greens, lavenders, and white batiks were a joy to play with in this series.  Pattern pieces need to be enlarged.  You'll get a chance to machine embroider the details or use a permanent marker.  Pieces are fused on.  Individual patterns are sold separately or you can buy the entire set for about half price of buying separately.  In addition to the 12 patterns, there is one "Habitats Extra" featuring how to make winter pillowcases and placemats.  Have a great time with this series!
