    Snow People

    I will be hanging this quilt this week and it will be staying up through Feb., along with all my snowmen. It took me two years to finish because I'm not expert at applique or embroidery. This is from SnowFolks Quilt by Tricia Gribbs.

    Maybe if you keep it up in July it will help you to feel cool. Far as I am concerned it is a hang anytime, anywhere, makes you feel happy quilt.

    What a beautiful job you did. This is fun, whimsical and definitely needs to be up all winter (smile). Nice workmanship. Thank you for sharing.
