    I did put a note by my screen so I wouldn't forget to check every month. I just got a real pretty piece of blue cotton from the remanet table that will be perfect to start with.

    I love it. I am also saving the patterns for her "Southern Gentlemen" quilt. My resolution this year is to learn needle-turn applique. I think this might be easier than all the complicated turnings of "Southern Gentlemen."

    if you put yourself on the mailing list, you get an update every month. that way you can't forget. i'm saving southern gentlemen and as soon as it appears each month, i bookmark it. when/if i save all the months, i MAY begin by machine (needlturn? moi? ]

    I just went to Fatcats page. ya'll have to go read her stuff about Family Dirt. The one about the bathroom will crack you up. I'm still laughing.

    I have never done this sort of thing. Would you paperpiece the arms of the snow man & the small pieces?

    i would embroider those arms with something like a thick stem stitch or chain stitch and i would satin stitch the dots on the face. that's just me. i suppose you could applique, but it would be extremely hard to do on the arms.

    What a very cut quilt I will be headed to the website so as not to miss a single month -- It will make a cute quilt for my grandsons next year for Christmas and I can surely get a row a month done

    I love this quilt!! I have already bought the background and binding for the quilt, but do have a helpful question for myself. I want to do applique with an understitch so that it can't be seen, but have a really hard time with freezer paper. I do applique with heatbond light but can't do that with the understitch. Can anyone give me some tips on other ways maybe. Thanks so much.

    I've taken the plunge. I bought 5 yards of "sky" fabric for the background. I'm thinking the white snowmen will need two layers of white so the blue doesn't show through. Anybody ever do double applique to avoid the background showing through the white? Any other methods to avoid this probem?

    The fat cats wallhanging I made [see Avatar picture] was made in felt. That made them a bit thicker and, of course, furry. Actually, I think I might do that here too.

    I just watched Sewing with Nancy this morning & she said to use iron on pellon 1st & then use the wonder under for thin or white fabric.

    I saw Nancy's show too. I'm also thinking of using white flannel--it will be thicker and give the snowmen a little texture.

    You could make papa beside you a quilt. Man it is really cold where you live so I bet he would love it.
