Sinter Klaas


I made this little snowman wallhanging for my sister as a Sinter Klaas gift. It's a Terry Morberg pattern - cute, easy and fun!
We celebrated Sinter Klaas on the weekend. We put our shoes out at night and in the morning they have small gifts in them. We woke up to find small gifts in our shoes and enormous drifts of snow in the backyard. The kids ate some chocolate from their shoes and went and played outside for over an hour before breakfast. Ahhh - it was so nice and quiet :0)
Happy Quilting!!

A very cute snowman quilt!
It was interesting to read about the tradition of putting the shoes out and finding gifts in them.

Sweet quilt. Love the scarf.
What a neat tradition for your family. I have not ever heard of it before. Thanks for sharing it.

Do you have a pattern for this? I had made one a couple years ago, and wanted to make another one (or two this year for gifts), but could not find the link for the pattern - any idea where to buy it if that is the case?

Thanks
