This is my January block:
The design came from an old calendar; why didn't I think I could draw a snowman? I made the blocks in 1994. I quilted it on my Bernina in 2004. It is one my quilts that I can hang in my home any time of the year; which turns out nice since I'm not up to changing quilts so far this year; it's been hanging since Thanksgiving.
I'll show the other blocks occasionally in the next couple of months. I hesitate to declare that I will finish Mother's blocks so that I can post them here; but that IS the plan. Good luck to me.
In case you are interested;
- I used 2 layers of a thin polyester batting for the snowman.
- The green scarf is cut 2" wide with a torn edge for the fringe.
- I would use french knots for the mouth now.
- The arms are embroidered on the 6" version but appliqued on the 9" version.
