Getting Caught Up: Another Little Project Done

Over the weekend, I finished another little project.  I thought this one would be quick, and it was!

A friend of mine--the same one who I kitted up the Vintage Christmas quilt for--went to a local quilt show in November and bought a small standing frame and a little kit.  She showed me what she'd purchased, and when I went to the same quilt show the next day, I bought the same standing frame, but I bought a different kit--a snowman.

She and I are so dangerous for one another; I'm sure each of us would have a lot more money in our bank accounts if the other one wasn't always finding such great treasures!  The two of us together make a very strong economic stimulus package.

This little guy is the January pattern of a BOM by Buttermilk Basin called "Sew" Simple

I tried to find the stand online so I could give you a link in case you "need" it, but I didn't have any luck.  I didn't see it listed at the Buttermilk Basin site, but you could probably contact them to find a source or call the Fabric Garden quilt shop here in Sacramento and ask them--they are the quilt show vendor we purchased ours from.  If you come across a source, please post the info in a comment so anyone else looking for one can purchase it.

As this will be my last post of 2013, I want to thank all of you for stopping by to visit this past year and to wish all of you a happy, quilty, and prosperous New Year!

Sorry, found this website with mini quilt racks!

Sandy found the same site as I did. I purchased one form my local shop this past year so many quilt shops may be able to special order them. Mine is just metal colored so I may spray paint it. I like your white one better.

I love Buttermilk Basin patterns and your snowman came out so cute! I may have to take a look at their website again. BTW, your blog, with all of its inspiration, isn't exactly great for my pocketbook! Looking forward to your blog in 2014.
