    This is my first block, I hope you will like it. I have the appliques ready for my second block. Then I discovered that the block I have made for it is just not going to do. So, I'm going to re-make the block for it tomorrow. Glad I started early just in case I hit any snags. (can't imagine that...lol)

    **Look at this cute quilt!!

    I finished it. just needs a label. and the safety pin removed (in close up #2 photo). I had to hand stitch some shiny snowflakes on the top and had already put the sleeve on. had to be careful not to catch that with my stitches.

    Sure just tease us girl.
    I have my book out, and then to think about the snomen designs I have on embroidery. Uh oh, we are in trouble here, maybe have to do 20 different sets to get all my designs stitched out. We will see what comes out of this little girl when I set my mind to working on them. I have to get two fall runners done this weekend and my two sets of chickens then I can do my snowmen.

    Thank you QM and RG222. I have my next set all done. (See picture.) I am working on my 3rd set tomorrow. I have the applique all fused and ready to stitch down. And will be cutting the borders for this block tomorrow also. Not sure if I'll get them done tomorrow. But, for sure next week. I am having so much fun with these. And, then no more playing for a few days. Have to go to work. ( I will be brain storming my next block while I work. )

    Thank you Mariposa, I had something else planned for this block and then discovered the pattern for it was too small. I was determined to use this block since they were all pieced and ready to go. And, my applique snowman is getting a new block tomorrow. lol

    I am seriously considering joining this swap. I love snowmen and that's the bulk of our christmas decor. I don't have an embroidery machine, but do hand embroider so I think I would do one set that way. Would blocks with snowman fabric (no embroidery) be eligible?

    I'm going to do one with Snowman fabric also. I just haven't gotten to it yet. My next set will be a pieced block. I'm still trying to decide which block will best suit my fabric. I hope to finish my applique set today. I'm also working on my next applique set. I think on this one, I will ask yall's opinion to see what you think. I just can't tell. I bought this fabric, I loved this fabric. I made it into the blocks.....but, I really don't know if I love it. I really thought the applique would help wow the block. I'm still underwhelmed. I will try to have it ready to post later today. I would really value opinions.

    Thank you MuseandSew, I'm usually a blue Christmas person. But, I'm stash bustin' and I only had a small piece of the red left. This block worked out perfectly for it. So far, I have only bought 2 pieces of fabric to make my blocks. A pink swirl piece and a Snowman print. (Not bad for me.) The biggest pieces I usually have are fat quarters. And, of course, I keep yardage of white on white. I got some great deals on quilt store quality white fabric at the Paducah quilt show. I know, all that beautiful fabric. And, what do I buy, white! I really did that with the intention of being able to use ALL the fabric in my stash.

    I have been trying to decide WHICH pattern I want to do.

    There are about 4-7 that I am trying to decide on, 3 are
    machine embroidery, 2 are applique, and another is something
    unique that I seen in a new magazine I just got.

    So many decisions to make.

    I am loving the samples you all are posting, which is also giving
    me yet even MORE ideas.

    Here is my 3rd set. I decided on applique for this one. And I kept the border simple.

    This is another set I'm working on. What do yall think? I'm going to work on stitching it down this afternoon. I'm also going to try a slightly different placement for the next one. I'm trying to make it look like the snowman is doing a jump. Maybe I'll try just placing the pieces coming out of the center to make it look like it's jumping out of the center and see how that works. But, I do value your opinions. Any constructive criticism would be appreciated. Either way, I'll just keep this one for myself.

    Thank you Quilter Momma. Here is the above posted block all stitched done with the embellishments. I will include the buttons and snowflake in a little baggie attached to the block. Now, I need to get busy fusing and cutting the fabric for this block and trying the alternate placement.

    Something tells me I probably could stitch up IDK how many sets. I am having so much fun. I can't wait to make the pieced blocks also. This quilt is going to really cheer me up this winter!
