    Blizzard of Snowmen - Top Done

    The first layout proved to be impractical as all of the snowmen were pushed close together, and it was just a mass of blue. After looking at what others had done, I too decided to add little extras. So the mittens, snowflake, holly, stars, trees, gingerbread boys, and hot chocolate, entered the picture. I did not want it to be too Christmasy so I avoided things like ornaments, presents, stockings, and candy canes.

    It was started on January 27, 2015 and is about 90 x 90 inches.

    This project sat as a UFO not once but two times. However, this is a good thing because it gave me time to think about what I wanted to do with the details of each block. I promised myself that it would be finished by December 1st, however, I got sick of looking at it. At least the top is done. Some day I will quilt it, with mittens, stars and swirls, etc.

    Oh, I love it! Snowman are my favorite winter theme. You did great with the extra time to think out the embellishments. Finish it up and use it.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
