A nine page techniques section begins this book. There are 19 projects some of which are a “2 set” meaning that there are two projects with similar themes.

Each pattern begins with a color photo of the item and continues with a paragraph about the item and the finished project and block size. The material and cutting list is easily followed. Great graphics make the written word easier to follow and is great for us “visual” creators. Quilting the items is left up to you so you can be as creative as you want.

There is lots of applique in this book and the templates needed for them are included. Better yet, they are at full size so you don’t have to run out and get any enlargements.

The projects include quilts, lap quilts, table runners, table toppers, wall banner, door hanger and pillows. All are winter themes. If you are still looking for presents, there are some smaller ones you could whip up in time to give this Christmas. If not, then you have a great start on next year’s presents.
What wonderful designs they have come up with! Both authors learned to sew early in life with their grandmothers and aunts, their experience reflected in each project.

The book features bed-size quilts, lap quilts, wall hangings large and small, pillows... great ideas for Christmas gifts. The applique pieces are whimsical and add charm to these warm-colored projects.

I love their instructions for framing projects. They will come in handy when I make smaller quilts, such as the "Lost Mittens". A 'must-have' quilt book!
Warm colours, simple piecing and chunky applique projects is what these authors are known for.

This book features excellent instructions to assist in the creation of all the projects.

The ideas in Here Comes Winter are just lovely and if you enjoy creating warm, country style projects, this book will be the perfect addition to your sewing book library.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! The designs in it are adorable! Lots of great ideas for giving your home that warm glow during the holidays and throughout the winter season. I'm going to have to look at what else these authors have done - I love their style!

Review from Quilter's Connection, Summer 2014

Jeanne and Shelley from The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan have been busy designing 19 wonderful projects for their latest book. These whimsical modern-country designs are sure to delight and warm the heart - yet another best seller from these Canadian gals!
Review from Sinta Borland, Pink Pincushion Blog, June 2014

Shelley Wicks and Jeanne Large own and operate The Quilt Patch retail store in Moose Jaw, SK. In their new book, Here Comes Winter, there are 19 projects that range from pillows to table runners, to lap quilts and wall hangings. I love their projects because they are very do-able and have a fun kind of charm to the style. Also, since they aren't really labor intensive - you might consider making one or more projects... as gifts! The projects also range in style - there is whimsical, dramatic and just fun!
Review from The Applique Society Newsletter, September/October 2014

It is not too early to start on your Christmas gifting projects... Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks, authors of 'Tis the Season and 'Tis the Autumn Season, just released another book, Here Comes Winter - Quilted Projects to Warm Your Home. In this book you will find charming, chunky applique over pieced blocks. Their applique method of choice is fusible applique, finished with machine stitching. You will find snowmen and mittens and reindeer and more all done in a beautiful earth tone palette. Projects include quilts, wall hangings, table toppers and runners. There is also a nice bit of information on things you should consider if you choose to frame your work. Keep an eye out for this book next time you are looking for that special Christmas gift to make.
Review from Popular Patchwork, November 2014

Most of us don't need an excuse to get quilting, but there's little doubt that, as we edge towards the festive period, there's even more of an incentive to get creative and crafty, because those snuggly quilts look even more inviting as the long winter nights draw in. In this book, Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks have compiled an excellent selection of seasonal winter projects that are thematic, fun and practical. There's an evocative introduction to the joys of winter and the role quilting can play in it, and good starter guides on basic techniques to get you going. The projects themselves range from whimsical and jolly, such as the "A Few Good Men" quilt featuring a group of smiling, playful snowmen, to the more traditional pieced projects like the lovely red "Crosswalk" quilt. There are purely decorative projects too, such as the "Snow Happy" door banner, and a pleasant selection of Christmas-themed table runners and toppers. The authors have previously had some success with their seasonally-themed books and there's no reason to think that this one will be any less popular.

Jeanne Large

Jeanne learned to sew as a young girl from her mom and her Auntie Alice. She grew up sewing garments for herself, and then moved on to sewing for her five children, often creating something original and unique. Quilting was a natural progression from garment sewing and continues to fill a need to create. Time to spend on other hobbies, such as basket weaving and woodworking, is becoming rarer as the number of grandchildren grows and work commitments increase. However, there is always time to sew.
