    I am posting this picture only so the people who contributed the blocks to the snowman swap can see what I have done with them. I am happy with the way it looks as far as the colors, blocks, placement etc. However, if it could go wrong with this project it did. It's a good thing I've been sewing for over 50 years or I might just pack it in. Borders are wavy, had difficulty with the quilting, ended up with puckers and uneven borders. Seems like I need a roller foot but this new machine is not supposed to need one. I guess I'm going to have to find out what I am doing wrong. I had square up all of the blocks and some still weren't the same size. Since it is going on my bed for a month or two I decided not to try and rip out to make it right. So please don't try to tell me the workmanship looks good because I know you will be just saying it to be nice.

    One the plus side, I have finally learned to make good looking mitered corners.

    For those who do not see their blocks, I think that I will make a wallhanging with the ones that are left.

    If someone on the board has a Pfaff 2.0 Expression sewing machine and has done some machine quilting on it would be pm me and maybe you can tell me what I should or shouldn't do the next time. I have a king size and a double to quilt and I do want them to look nice since they aren't for me.

    All of the blocks from the swap

    Well, do you think while I was riding by on my flying white horse I might have seen a wonky seam somewhere. I think not! It looks great to me :thumbup:

    Fortunately the picture had to be taken so far away as to get the picture in that you can't see the wonky seams, puckers etc. Goodie for me. LOL

    I think it is wonderful. I haven't done anything with mine yet. Too many other UFO's I guess. Eventually I will do it. My mind works faster than I do.

    I love your blocks and I don't see ANY messups! You must have a much more critical eye than I.

    I love snowmen. Deciding which blocks to use had to have been very difficult. It is a great showcase of snowmen.

    I like the ones you chose for the runner. What are you going to do with the remaining 12 snowmen? Are you going to make another runner? Congrats on mastering mitered corners!!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I think that I will make a wallhanging with what is left. I have 4 with the red background that I made so I should be able to put something together to look nice.
