SNOWMEN FRIENDS

I finished my "Snowmen Friends" quilt today.  My friend Naomi had recently posted about a faux piped binding tutorial by TLC Stitches.  I loved the technique and will use it again. 


The Snowmen were from a block swap my friendship group did about six years ago.  We were to make a snowman block any size and any way. This "anything goes" is not something to tell a group of women to do. However, since we have no rules, there were blocks ranging in size from 15" square to 5 1/2" by 16".  You get the picture.  It took a bit of extra thought and fabric to put it together; but, that was the fun part. 

I am entering this into my Christmas in July challenge.  This month it can be anything Christmas out of fabric.  I think this qualifies, don't you?

I love your comments and if I don't respond to your comment, you are probably set to no reply.  If that is the case, please leave me your email address.

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Super cute. And the different size blocks really add that extra oomph to the quilt - it may have been a bit more work, but it sure was worth it!

I REALLY love this quilt, Marilyn! It looks so good that you'd think it was a kit! And the "piping" does look great.
