In the Meadow...

I fell in love with this cool applique' snowman pattern!


And I had the perfect place to put it!!


However, the quilt size was too small for the wall spot, so I added 10" to both width and length.


But in doing so, the size of the snowman was too small for the larger quilt size.


So, I added a bottom ball of snow,


two tree branch arms, 


and more snowflakes and wind curls.


I was thrilled to find the perfect scarf fabric from Tula Pink!!



Yogi was, as usual, very interested in the making of my "In the Meadow".


Are you all getting lots of sewing done this winter?
