A Good Morning of Sewing!

The last six Snowman Applique Centers are Done !

These are for my

that I started HERE

To streamline the process, I like to use an "assembly line" method
so I made the last 6 center blocks one step at a time.

First I cut the 6" circles for the heads and appliqued them down.

My applique technique is improving!

I set my machine to a small stitch and it looks neat.

I change colored threads as I went along to minimize the thread changes.

I did the carrot noses last.

Ready to sew on the button eyes and mouths!

Then on to assembly lining the log cabins.

This morning, I also made ...

3.5" unfinished

I am pretty happy with how this one came out
and it took me less than a half hour from cutting to pressing.

I can do this!

It has been a productive day of sewing so far.

I hope to have the snowman blocks completed tonight and ready to piece into the top.

Have a happy, quilty day!
