This fabric is a little "busy" but the snow person is white so hopefully it will work out....I really don't have many options at this point! LOL! Here's the pattern for the snow person. Most were so "hokey" that I didn't care for them but I liked this one except it is for a door hanger, not a quilt block...like I said, I'm not too good at improvising so we shall see........
I love the door hanger and I think I'll make that someday too. It's a free pattern (along with some other freebies) on All People Quilt It is a magazine but I don't subscribe anymore I just go to the website. LOL! I get plenty there without spending the money.....try it with your favorite magazines! You might be surprised at how much is out there for free.
Here are the other coordinating fabrics for the machine appliqued snow person.
I'm using quilt batting for the snowman as it is nice and soft and "snowy" looking. The finished block has to be 12 1/2 inches so I am making my squares 14 inches for now and will trim when I'm done. I wanted to make them plenty big in case I mess up which is fairly likely! I've pressed the material and I have 5 of the 10 background blocks cut out and will get that done tonight and probably trace the applique pieces and get the paper patterns ironed to the fabric if I have enough of that Steam n' Seam or whatever it is. I spent most of the day trying to find the email about the blocks, re-finding the pattern and downloading it and then going through my "stash" to find material for the blocks. Whew! Never again! Every Fall when I want to be outside and NEED to be outside getting projects done other things always pop up....the family thing, the city water thing, and now the quilt block thing! What was I thinking? I'll get it done but what about my outside painting and caulking? Maybe I do need a husband? No, scratch that...I DID NOT just say that!!!! LOL!
Nothing against them and I'm sure yours are wonderful, I've just not had very good luck in that category so I am a confirmed bachelorette! LOL!
Oh! Tonight is the season opener for Grey's Anatomy!!!! I have watched that show from the beginning and quilt blocks or not I am watching it tonight! I hope you had a great Thursday! HUGs to all!
