Snowman in the Cabin Blocks Done!

My 9 Snowman in the Cabin Blocks Done!

I have enough blocks now for the wall hanging that I have planned.

These smiling faces were waiting for me when I got up today.

Last night I did the hand sewing of the button eyes and details.

Sewing the embellishments on before finishing the piecing does mean extra care while sewing and pressing, 

but I enjoyed seeing that cute snowmen faces while I worked.

I lined up my blocks and sewed one round at a time.

I trim and square my blocks after each round.

I find this keeps my blocks looking square and to size.

Here are my last nine blocks:

Block 4

Block 5

Block 6

Block 7

Block 8

Block 9

I had a lot of fun making these blocks!

I am going to study the placement and layout on my design wall for a day or two
to see if I want to add sashing and to decide on my outer border fabric.

Hope to be quilting it by the weekend.

Sew cute. I want to do but I HAVE to finish up at least a few of my current projects before starting anything else no matter how cute.
