Snowman in the Cabin Window QAL

Do you want to Build a Snowman? 

This is a quilt along! 

"Snowmen in the Cabin Window" Quilt

This project is scrap-friendly.

This top measures 42" by 42"

Fabric Requirements:

For the blocks:

2" black and white print strips, a mix of black on white and white on black,
    fat quarters or scrap strips work well, about 10 FQs would be needed

4.5" black squares; a total of 9 needed

6" circles of white fabric, about 4-5 circles, 
     as you can wedges for more than one block

scrap of orange fabric for the carrot noses, about 3" by 6"

scraps of fabric for the hats, scarves, earmuffs or whatever you create for your snowmen ... have fun making these your own 

Also needed:
fusible applique interfacing, I used Wonder Under 
    - follow the instructions for use from the manufacturer

I used buttons and bright scraps for the eyes and mouths,
but the details could be appliqued or embroidered

Additional fabric for finishing the top:

Inner Border:   Four 2" by WOF (width of fabric) white on black print 
        such as a dot or snowflakes

Outer Border:  Four 5" by WOF black on white print, such as a swirl or scroll 

Here are the cutting instructions I worked up for

I love this top.. I've seen some pictures of this floating around FB, but until I stopped here yesterday I had no idea the pattern was here... Thank you.. I need to make one of these for myself.. Log Cabin is my favorite pieced block and this is just adorable.

Thank you for sharing your "Snowmen in the Cabin Window" quilt pictures and directions. I grew up in MI, so I am especially fond of snow and snowmen. I LOVE your design. I also love your Gingham Prairie Pinwheels Quilt and am wondering where I might find the pattern. It is so cute! I would love to make it for a friend of my daughter's who is expecting her first child. I quilt for charity (the Santa Train which runs out of Kingsport, TN) and for family and friends, so I am always looking for new ideas. Take care, have a good day, and thank you for your inspiration!

I was inspired by your design, and I made one of my own. I could not upload a picture of it here, but if you go on Facebook I have posted a picture there.
