Final blocks for Snowmen in the Pines

Block 3 Bottom Left
As I sit here and write this post I am listening to some of my favorite Christmas songs from Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Burl Ives, Frankie Lane, Gene Autry, Clay Aiken, Johnny Mathis and some unknowns.  We listened to everyone of these except Clay and Johnny, of course, every Christmas.  Today I am starting my Christmas baking and felt this would be the thing to listen to as I bake.  Can't wait to hear from favorites like "I saw Mommy kissing Santa" .

This will probably be my last post before Christmas so I want to wish everyone a great Holiday and/or Merry Christmas.  I'll probably be back before New Years hopefully with finish tops for both these small wall hangings.  So today I will be sharing both the 3rd and 4th block for Snowmen in the Pines. Please note that the red strip needs to be added to complete the applique on both blocks.  Sorry, no corncob pipes.  I just don't have the time to meet that challenge.  I need to finish up these wall hangings and get ready for the floral quilt I want to share with everyone.  Then don't forget that in the summer I will be sharing a new cat quilt featuring fun stuff for Christmas.  Then who knows where my imagination will take me.  If you want to share ideas please feel free. I've thought of doing a series of monthly wall quilts that are all the same size so that I could replace it every month in the same spot on my wall. They would feature things from that particular   month. Whatever comes after these 2 quilts I will try and keep it as simple as possible.

  5. I think your blocks are wonderful and so fun. I think my kids would love something like this, they always say mine are too old fashioned, lol. I love cats, can't wait to see what you make with them. I hope you and your family have a Blessed Christmas.

  15. Wow, where to start -- ditto what everyone else has said. You are talented, gifted, generous and have a very wonderful sense of whimsey that shows in your designs. Thank you for sharing with us. I hope you won't mind if I share info about your blog on my blog. I'm curious how you choose to actually do your applique. Do you do it by hand needle turned or the like (that would mean I would NEVER finish them) or by machine say raw edge applique or by machine applique or machine or hand buttonhole stitch? I didn't realize all the options. I am mostly a piecer but I dabble in applique although I am terrible about getting to the finish line! I hope you have a wonderful new year and enjoy stitching and designing all year long.

  18. LOVE the snowmen! I'm catching up after having no internet for a couple of weeks and playing hostess at our annual Stitchin' Camp last week. Now to gather everything together and get these snowmen "built". You mentioned doing a monthly project that could be swapped out. You might want to consider making them fit the 12"w x 14"h table stand by Ackfeld. These have become very popular with my ladies, and if you order #87747 ($25) you can change the toppers to match the season/theme. Just a thought :-)!

  19. Both sets of patterns are wonderful and hopefully will get done before the holidays come around again. Have I missed the location of the final directions to put the Snowmen group together?
