IN THE MEADOW YOU CAN BUILD A SNOWMAN PART 2

An update on the snowman quilt.  I finished the second row of the quilt.  First row for me as I am saving the top row for the end.
I have not trimmed the row to size yet.  I allowed extra width and length for trimming later.  I once trimmed a row that was to go in a row quilt and ended up in trouble.  I forget if I got a row too short or too long and not able to trim it.  I decided on this one that the trimming would be close to the end.

Some of the applique parts are wool.  Such as the red fox, and birds.  I am doing needle turn applique otherwise.  Now I need to prep parts for the next row.

Have a good day!
Karen

  2. Looking good! Nothing worse than trimming one row too short. Don't ask me how I know that.

  8. I love seeing this! can't wait for my patterns to get here though I keep thinking about the whale quilt while I'm sewing up my little country window blocks. Actually I have about 3 projects vying for my attention. Need to either stretch my days or clone :-)

  20. Love it!! Nice handling of the stripes for the red house. I really need to do a primitive style some day, and I've never worked with wool. Does it fray on the edges badly?
