    Snow Much Fun Flannel Quilt

    I got a call from my 7 year old niece (Kemberlen, my youngest sister's daughter) who lives in Alaska, asking me if I would make her a snowman quilt for show-n-tell at school. I really don't have a lot of extra time with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, but there was no way I could say "no"! I picked up this panel by Henry Glass (Snow Much Fun) and threw some borders on and called it good (1st picture). The 2nd picture shows the dotted fabric that will be the backing. I will quilt it in the morning and get it to the post office in hopes it will get to Alaska in time for the show-n-tell by next Wednesday. Sometimes these "quick panel quilts" are a true life saver!

    What a sweet quilt. Such a lucky little girl to have such a great Aunt.
    This will be her best show & tell ever I bet.

    I love that panel and the fabric with the skiing snowmen. May have to look for that. I really like the snowmen panels and I have a few. Your niece will be so happy when she shows it at her show and tell. I always liked the show and tell times at schools when my kids were little

    I have quilted 2 of these for friends. I have a computerized quilting machine and I quilted penguins on them. It is really a cute panel.
