December tastes and smells like peppermint to me. I LOVE it!! This is my 2011 Calendar Contest winner. I'm so excited !!!! I had so much fun designing and creating this yummy quilt. I'm so happy to share it with everyone!!
The red/white border stripes are pipecleaners that I couched down, the snowflakes are made from balsa wood, painted, and stitched, the cupcake icing is "stuffed" (trapunto), and all the candy are glass beads. The cupcake is topped off with a yoyo and button cherry! I sewed many little red seed beads around the red squares to give it more fun.
My very simple, humble Peppermint was very fun to make and even more fun to share. Christina Yoo, Ohio.
