Winterkist has finally landed on our rooftops and has started shipping! Gnoma Claus is back (ish) and in in SIX freshie fresh colors! Winterkist is not a sequel to Holiday Happy - but rather everything I wanted Holiday Happy to be and then some (not that I didn’t love my first baby). Winterkist is a mash-up of rain, snow, puddles, Gnoma Claus on Botox, and crazy bright colors to warm up the dark Winter months.
Another exciting change is that Gnoma Claus doesn’t come on a panel like he did on Holiday Happy - but now he’s on actual yardage. That means more Gnoma per yard + it’s usable yardage! Fussy cut or not, it’s a gnoma-fiesta by the yard. You can see how it all works by having a sneak peek inside the little Winterkist Booklet I made for Lecien. Here’s a snapshot inside the booklet:

There are 30 SKU’s in all, 5 prints each in Pink, Orange Sherbet, Red, Aqua (or teal), Lime and Graphite. I don’t know what I’m most excited about… the Orange Sherbet or the Graphite. Not yo momma’s holiday colors, fo sho! Well, not my momma’s colors. And if you are one of my kids - in that case it IS yo momma’s holiday colors.
I’ve been playing with color combos. It’s like play-dough for the quilter/sewist in me.
