Default Snowmen and Snowflakes

A couple of weeks ago, a few of us took a road trip to a distant LQS, Material Rewards in Dansville NY. We had a blast and the quilt shop is fantastic. I saw these buttons and was going to pass. Later, I said to myself, if you don't buy them you will kick yourself! Now, keeping in mind, I hate to hand sew, sewing 12 buttons on a mini quilt was a brave decision. This is my finish. After 3 1/2 hours of sewing the binding to the back and stitching the miters and sleeve, I did not want to sew the buttons on... so I glued them on! LOL This finished at 9x11. Notice the fussy cut stars in the cornerstones.

Your Snowmen and Snowflakes is so cute. I recently bought a kit just like this and thought it would be fun to make. I guess life got in the way and I never got started. Maybe next year. LOL!!! I thought the buttons were so cute too. Thanks for sharing your work
