    Snowmen in July

    Here is a table topper that was supposed to be done from a pattern. Once I cut all the pieces I realised that I really did not like the way it looked so I changed it. My kids think it is cool and that's all I needed to hear.

    So cute! Sometimes just hearing someone say they like what you have made is all you need, especially if it's family.

    I love snowmen anyway (especially as we brace for another heat wave in my neck of the woods) & this is proof that they rule! This is just adorable! I don't know what the original pattern looked like but I agree with your kids! This is just exactly how it should be!!!

    It is adorable and I really like how you used the blue hand quilting in the white sections and the buttons. Added a nice touch to an already adorable quilt!

    I think it's cool, too! Who doesn't like snowmen in July!? =)
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It is cute as a button, and unique. Glad to hear you made it the way you wanted instead of following a pattern that you didn't like doing.
