    Snow Much FUN - And it really was!

    A few weeks back my DH and I took the In-Laws on a day trip to the Amish...well they enjoy my passion for quilting so a few quilt stores were on my list of places to visit..... well I happened to see a rag quilt on display ..... as I am a snowman fanatic I could not resist purchasing this fabric ... promised myself I would not touch until my current project was done. That didn't last long - had everything already cut-out and waiting.... I mean who could resits that cute little guy! Needless to say it is done and I'm ready for the first chilly evening! Enjoy!

    Very cute! How big are your blocks and is the fabric flannel?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Really cute. I love the snowman but I don't want to think about winter yet. The garden is still beautiful.

    I think flannel rag quilts are the most cuddly type of warm in the Winter. This will certainly fit that description.....so cute. Did you first wash it at home or did you use a commercial washer? I'm making one and can't decide what to do regarding this....
