Let It Snow

A goal of mine for 2013 is to get my WIP's under control!  So, in an effort to be held more accountable to that I am going to try to link up to WIP Wednesday with Freshly Pieced at least twice a month.

I have many, many, many WIP's but this week I will just show this one.  My local quilt shop - which I LOVE - is doing a block of the week program.  I have signed up and we are making smaller quilts but with applique, and other embellishments added to them.  I think they are all kind of holiday or seasonal.  The December/January project is this cutie - Let It Snow

Let it Snow

The quilt top is nearly complete.  I am only lacking the other eye!  I broke the other eye button while trying to sew it on with my machine!  OUCH!  

Part of the reason I decided to join this cutesy year long project is to better my machine applique skills, try some embroidery, and feel comfortable adding embellishments - like buttons.  It should be an eventful year!  I am looking forward to hopefully fixing the eye and machine quilting this top hopefully this weekend.  I am anxious to try different quilting designs in the different blocks.

Linking up to Fabric Tuesday and WIP Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love your snowman. You could embroider a line with blanket stitch for his other eye. Then he would be winking at you. Only you and he would know the secret!

  2. Adorable! I just love snowmen quilts and yours is too cute with the cup and mittens too.

  3. So cute! I love your snowman. The mittens and cup are adorable too.

  4. Too cute. I love the snowman.

  5. This is just the most adorable little quilt!! :)
