    I made this last spring and I have just found it while setting up some christmas things. It has I don't know maybe hundreds of one inch squares to make up the whole thing. The black is all different the whites and so on. :D

    I do this early because I shop for most all of my christmas presents the day after christmas and it is too much to do all at once. Make sense?

    Any way I hope I can get it to upload, this is a new computer. Windows 7.

    I hope you enjoy it. It sure was fun to make. By Happy Hollow designs ...

    Thanks ducky! I am not going to make any more. The link is in the top posting for the site. But do you want my pattern? I have your addy somewhere, I think. I suppose you could buy the completer kit there on the web site.

    Mine is made with my own fabrics I bought. But I wanted blue in mine. But, I think they have a fabric kit there as well.

    LOL! I know it cracked me up in the quilt store display, so I had to make it.
    I am not sure you can see the quilting on it. But, it was fun to choose the design.

    Oh and ... Thanks marsye!

    Super cute! I've never seen a big one done with fabric.

    For another variation of the same idea, use TP tubes covered with construction paper. Give him some feet. A heart shaped glued on the bottom works well. Leave a hole in the top of the hat and fill it up with wrapped candies. Makes a great kids party favor.

    Thanks so much Charismah, Molliesue, littlehudLisa, pinklissasamel, wvdek and amma. :D :D :D

    It took a couple days to make him. But he is so fun to look at, I had to.

    I also made the jack o' Lantern wall hanging and snowman ornaments by this same company. It was just so much fun to use this way of quilt piecing it was like popcorn, you just can't stop.

    I gave the jack o' lantern away and I have a new computer, so I don't have a pic of it. But , I posted it in an old post. Maybe I can find it to show you girls. I will check. Update ... Here it is! ...http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/19791.page

    I was crusing around martha stewart's sit this morning and saw a few cute crafts to make this holiday. (Crafts) I will shop for some of the supplies today. One was a tube made into a yule log with a bird and greenery on top. Way cute! You print out the yule log paper and glue it on to make it look like the bark. Clever, huh? She is good. (A good thing ..LOL)

    Me too n2scraplvr,
    I have a few displays with the little snowmen around the house. They are just so endearing.

    I would take a pic of them to show, but my cameras are not wanting to work on the windows 7. I spent over two hours on the phone with a tech yesterday from kodak, and they still won't work. :x Dang it! One of these is brand new, and it won't work. I think something is wrong with the download for 7 there if you ask me.

    Sorry, just ranting a little ....

    If we didn't pretend it looked like Christmas outiside...well, it wouldn't be the same...don't want to see Santa riding up in a cadillac? Where's the tradition in that?
    How does he stand up?

    I think you're RIGHT!! There are lots of issues w/windows 7! We sure hope this picture problem is resolved. Would love seeing your snowmen collection~~!!! :lol:
