Hi everyone! Have you already started Thanksgiving cooking? We finished our sweet potatoes and cranberry-pear sauce, but still have lots of cooking ahead of us tomorrow. (And, if I’m lucky, maybe a little sewing too.)
This is a little belated but LOTS of readers have written to me asking for a pattern that was originally released with my Holiday Bouquet line. The problem was, I really didn’t want to release it without reworking the directions significantly, so I needed to push it until after Market. In the original pattern Blend referenced SKU listings, rather than fabric descriptions, which was a little confusing. Also, I wanted to rework the instructions and make a few changes so that you could use one fabric for the upper background and one for the lower background – I just love the look! So, here is is… Zigzag Christmas!
I used my good friend Cherry Guidry’s Frosty Forest line for Benartex for Zigzag Christmas this time. It has some lovely blenders and is so cute! (It ships to stores later this year.) SKU info is included in the pattern.
I really wanted to sew a new version to show you all on the blog – both in Frosty Forest and also a scrappy version using extra fabric from Modern Holiday (because I seem to be a fan of biting off more than I can chew) – but I know that some of you all really wanted Zigzag Christmas as soon as possibly with Christmas right around the corner, so I went ahead and posted it in my shop. And also in the shop this weekend – starting on Thanksgiving and running through Sunday – a SALE! 20% off all using the code HAPPYTHANKSGIVING !
…. because that is what I hope you all have!
What will you sew this weekend? I’m hoping to start a new version of Holiday Forest, the cover project pictured on Modern Holiday, in reds and pale blues, and greys for my mom. (No, mom, it isn’t done or even started yet, but I’m working on it!)
Whatever you may be cooking, piecing, or quilting, have a lovely holiday weekend!
