Do You Want To Build a Snowman Quilt?


This is Block #1 of what I am calling my

"Snowman in the Cabin Window"  Quilt.

It is inspired by 


that was posted in the

"Quilting" Face Book Group that I like on FB.




Here is the basic block without embelishments.

This block measures 10.5" unfinished.



To determine the cutting instructions I worked it out as I went.


Here are my handwritten sketch.


For this block I pressed all seams outward and pressed and trimmed and squared as I sewed.


I cut an applique nose from orange solid.


Used a dab of glue to anchor it in place and machine appliqued.


Found some black buttons in my button jar for a face and hand-stitched them in place.


This is the  quilt layout for a 36.5" wallhanging.



Sew ... do you want to build a snowman?  ... ;)


Block 2 Coming Soon!!
