Snowmen! I love snowmen!
This month’s block is pretty easy peasy compared with past months, but we are slowing getting to the end of the year. This month we will make four snowmen. They will be our corner blocks for the border. To make their sweet little faces we will sew on buttons for their eyes and mouth. (Button kits are available to purchase in my Etsy shop) Remember, you don't sew on all of the buttons until after your quilt is quilted. I appliquéd the snowmen noses, but you can use a carrot shaped button if you would like.Have fun with this block. You will be able to get these done easily in an afternoon.
|You get to make four of these sweet snowman blocks.|
|I have all of my pieces ready to go to assemble my snowman blocks...|
I was such a lucky girl, I got to use my mom's new sewing machine.
It's the Cadillac of sewing machines and has a handy dandy laser light to help you line your blocks up while sewing. So slick! There's no guessing here!
|This picture shows my corner to corner seams to form the snowman block.|
|Trim away the excess fabric and then iron... to the dark side.|
I appliqued the noses onto the center of the block.
The button eyes and mouth won't be sewn on until after I have
my quilt quilted.
Button packs are available in my Etsy Shop. I have packaged the button packs a couple of different ways. Either as one big pack with everything in it or individually for each design/row.
I hope that you have fun making this block this month. Remember to post those pictures!
