2011 Christmas Quilt Show - Snowman Collector

SewCalGal is have a Christmas Quilt Show, stop by and see all the wonderful Christmas quilts in the show.  There are some wonderful things that are sure to inspire you!




My entry in the quilt show is the Snowman collector.  This quilt took many many years to just get started.  I saw this quilt and knew I had to make my own.  Ten years later, I finally did!  Yep, that's right it took me ten years, but hey I did it!!  I didn't quite get it done for the Holiday season last yet, but this year it's hanging on my wall an I smile every time I see it.  I am so glad I did finally make it.  And here it is!

I had so much fun with this one.  I really got into the FMQ as well.  There are snowflakes in each of the colored squares.  The first red border has holly leaves and berries.  The green border has mittens (oh doing that free hand on my DSM made me a little nervous - I just call them whimsical :)



And here's a couple of the blocks up close.  I did fusible applique with a blanket stitch around the raw edges.
