    Anyone else working on Merry Merry Snowmen by Bunny Hill?

    Love to know anyone else working on this pattern. How are you adapting to the irregular block shapes? How are you coming along with the embroidery? Are you using the same fabric for scarves? I have tried to very my choices.
    Main question: how are you handleing the window panes? Using a chord or embroidery?
    Really hoping thete is someone else working on this project. It is cute, labor intensive..that was a surprise.

    I am working on it. I'm behind though ... too many other projects. I've finished the first 2 blocks, and the applique is done on block 3 - I just need to finish the embroidery on it. So far I've been following the directions for embroidery stitch styles and fabrics.

    I have just completed the top of my quilt. I love, love, love it. I am making it for my granddaughter and just finished making the label this afternoon. I had no trouble sewing the blocks together. Just follow the instructions. This was my first attempt at hand appliqué. I found that I really enjoy it. I used embroidery on the windows as suggested in the instructions. Tomorrow, I plan to make my quilt sandwich. I want to try to quilt it myself the way it is quilted in the pictures. Wish me luck, as FMQ is a real challenge for me. I was excited to learn that others are making this quilt.

    I have the pattern for this and have gathered enough material (I hope) not the exact same line but most of it is French General. I just need the nerve to start on it.....it's a bit ambitious for this newbie!

    I am working on my last block. I hope I get it done in time to hang up for Christmas. I bought it as a BOM, it seems to keep me motivated. I just finished an older Bunnyhill Christmas quilt to send to my daughter, in time for Christmas!!!! I did The Night Before Christmas last year. can you tell I like Bunnyhill Quilts?

    I made the quilt as a BOM. The first 3 blocks are the same size on the side seam. I sewed each of these blocks together as I finished them. As I made additional blocks, I placed them in the proper position on my design wall. When I completed block 7, I could sew the top of it to the bottom of block4. The bottom of block 5 was sewn to the top of block 8. I then sewed the Block 4 segment to the block 5 segment. After I finished block 9, it was sewn to block 6 and the segment joined to the blocks 4 and 5 segments. This completed the bottom part of the quilt which could then be sewn to the top (blocks 1-3). The blocks you sew together match so joining them is easy. You just can't join them in the order they are completed. I really like the borders. I almost left out the snowman head on the top border. Fortunately, I noticed it in time to include it. Best wishes on your quilt! I so enjoyed making mine. Of course, I haven't quilted it yet.

    You can do it! I have only been quilting for 2 1/2 years and this was my first attempt at hand appliqué when I joined the BOM to make the quilt, I knew so little that I thought it was machine appliqué. Was I surprised when the first block arrived and I saw it was hand appliqué! Now I have learned a new skill which I really enjoy. Get started. You'll love your quilt when it is completed.

    Thank you for your explanation. I am a bit challenged with dimensions. The block nine went in perfectly! All corners matching corners...just 1 1/2 too short ! I threw in a differant fabric strip at the bottom and called it good to go! Ha ha..i have enjoyed this style of applique for years. Dolly days by brandy wine designs was the most fun. That is where i picked up ideas adding jackets and vest. This is fun! So glad to hear from a quilter that got the top done!
