Last of the Snowbound Blocks

A final push and I finished the last four of the Bunnyhill Snowbound quilt blocks.
Some of you probably remember when the block patterns were free.  It was a block of the month in 2010.  So here it is 2014 and I finally did the last of the applique blocks.  I will have to shop for fabric to do the setting blocks.  Nothing in my stash in a large enough quantity in suitable pastel colors.  But I am obviously in no rush.

Oh these are so adorable--I am working very hard to finish my bindings on my "Last" two big quilts and then onto applique in earnest. Hugs, Julierose

Very cute blocks. All good things take time!

Your snowmen are adorable, Karen, and the background print is perfect.

When Lori and I went to Carriage Country Quilts, I was shocked at how expensive it would be to complete the BOM quilts they had on display.

Way to go on sticking to it and getting them all made. They are so cute.

They are rather nice, but, you have a few months to have them finished for christmas!!!!!!! Isnt it a great feeling to be working on older projects. Mi have a list of WIP and a smaller list of things I want to make, such a thrill when I can cross something off.

Those are fun blocks and I do remember those. I always started to collect the BOM's, then got around to doing them, lol.

I did those blocks in January 2011. I discovered the free blocks in Dec and copied them. We had a huge snow storm that January and I got them all hand appliqued that week. It was so fun working on them watching the snow outside, a rarity in Georgia. I ended up gifting the quilt to my DIL as she loved it so much! Such a fun quilt!

Very cute little snowmen with personalities.
Maybe you should piece some snowball blocks to go around them (just thinking about the log cabin blocks around Lincoln and Mary). : )

Lo que mas me gusta de la decoración navideña son los muñecos de nieve,
estos bloques son preciosos, y el fondo de topitos.....ya no me puede gustar mas.

Those are all adorable Karen. I love the one holding the peace sign.

I have this top completed but have never quilted it as I wouldn't use it and have never had anyone to gift it to. I have them on a sparkle fabric so they are pretty fancy.

There's no expiration date for cuteness.

I love your little snowmen! The polka dot fabric looks like snow falling!

Loris said...

Perfect fabric choices! Can't wait to see what you choose for setting them :-)

I made this into a flimsy. This was my most favorite thing I've sewn yet. I need to quilt it someday. I just love yours!!!

Sue said...

These snowmen and just the Cutest :-D

Good for you finishing up a quilt you started so long ago

Marie said...

Snowmen are among my very favorites. Can you send me the phone number to get in touch with the quilter you use for your quilts. I have decided I can not do the military quilt on my machine and I need to get it done as soon as I can. I do like the work you have had done. Since my fall I have trouble lifting things and I know this will be heavy to do.Have a beautiful day. Hugs, Marie
