IN THE MEADOW WE CAN BUILD A SNOWMAN

I have started working on a row quilt that has been in the planning stage for several months.  The pattern I am using is by Geoff's Mom and here is a link to the pattern.  I have the first house and snowman done.  Well, the snowman needs eyes and buttons but I am thinking of using black snaps for those.  Better to add those after quilting.
Lots of work left to be done but I wanted to share what I have done.

A beautiful and warm day here.  Certainly not snowman weather.  Enjoy your day.  I am going to spend a good portion of mine stitching and pressing new fat quarters that have been washed and dried.

  1. This is so very cute, Karen. I love snowmen and this one is charming. He would be very happy at my house where it is currently 10 degrees outside at 9:30 in the morning. But that is warm compared to what we were in January. Enjoy your balmy weather! : )

  7. Very cute! I am working on this too. I have the last row and I can call it done. I think I will wait until after the quilting is done to add eyes too.

  8. I am making this one too, it was a BOM from Homestead Hearth. I have to tell you, it's going to be cute, but one of the rows, the one with the racoon, took all day long and was a you know what to do, even with it being fusible. I have one more row to do and I will be glad when it is done!

  20. oh I do love snowmen! that one is so cute and love the house too! I used the little black snaps on a snowman I made a couple weeks ago-they look real good, sometimes I think the little black buttons are scary or weird looking--but perhaps that's just me being weird and scary-haha!
