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!

QM, These are adorable! Did you cut them all by hand? I love the blue fabric with the trees in the back ground.

Thanks Mariposa, I HAD to buy it. It's a Jay McCarroll print. (Said, tongue in cheek.) lol, I'm Project Runway junkie. Or at least I use to be. Now, I work every Thursday night. (It's kind of changed tho.) I changed the placement just a bit on my Snowman Skier and scaled back just a few pieces and I'm kind of getting the look I wanted.

Wow, QuilterMomma, there are some teenie tiny pieces there. Sure do like your Snowman row. It's really great! I was just wondering if you had an accuquilt cut system. I'm hoping Santa brings me one for my birthday and Christmas. We'll see.

I have the pieces for my last block cut out. And, I'm still working on my "Skiers". I hope yall are having a great week. My work week starts tonight, so, probably won't have too much to share for a few days. Can't wait to see what yall are working on.
