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!!
