    Storybook Snowmen

    I have started to put my snowmen together, I wish I used a better muslin, but I though 9.00 a yd would be a good one, oh well it's done now. Also calls for 10 different colcr blues but I only wanted to use one color and one white.

    Oh, I love this! May I ask what pattern you've used for the snowmen?

    Your blocks look awesome! It's getting harder and harder to get a decent muslin. I usually opt for white on white or white on cream for backgrounds now.

    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I agree, I have been using a wow for many that I've been making. Everyone at the shop said try a muslin so I did. Won't do it again. This will be my 3rd completed top I have embroidery since Sept. Also working on Over the River for my son, he wants it all done in black/whites??

    Your quilt is beautiful! I really love the color choices you used. It has gotten so bad I rarely buy muslin for anything. No matter how much you pay the quality doesn't seem to be that good. I now buy white quilt fabric (white on white, or creams). Rub the fabric between your fingers and you will start to recognize the different feel of fabrics. Start trusting your instincts.

    I really like the blue and white you used. I think just one blue is really nice.

    Very pretty. Did you embroider the snowman blocks or fabric paint? I really like just the blue and white.

    There all hand embroidered. Thanks so much everyone. I purchased this fabric from a gal on this site, I just love it. It's a fairy frost.
