Winterkist is as sweet as CANDY!!!!

It is TRUE you can make some sweet gifts with it! Either to give away or for yourself ;o)





Winterkist is the new line by Monica Solorio-Snow for Lecien that is packed full of COLOR and whimsy that will be perfect for your Christmas sewing.  I was fortunate enough to have really nice sample pack of these lovelies to try out on my very own!!!!! EEEEEEPPPP!!

Ready for some OOOOOOOOing and AAAAHHHHHhhhing?

I decided to take my fabrics and make a Peppermint Candy Table Topper using the Peppermint Candy block I made for Sara's 12 Days of Christmas Sew Along last year.


The topper measures 41x19
I used Pellon Legacy Batting and Fusable Fleece to give the candy centers a little poof!!!!!!
Thread was Aurifil Mako 50wt, blue 5005, cream 2311, red 1103 and green 1147. All perfect matches!!!!








I hope you are inspired to start on those Christmas projects!!! I know I am!!!!

Thank you Monica for letting me try your beautiful new line and make something fun!!!!!
