It has been a struggle to upload photos to this post for the last 2-3 days, but fortunate now it looks like it works... I hope the connection 'behaves' until the post is done!!! Fingers crossed!!!
I have had so much fun creating these projects - love the whimsical snowmen!
I've been playing with the fabrics to create these blocks - lots of fun! :)Yet another table runner! :)
Close-up of the block.
For the backing I have used some of the fabrics that I didn't find very interesting for the tops.
A pair of placemats...
Another pair, here the snowmen are on dark red (currant) background...
What's the life without mug rugs?! :))
Christmas card holder
He's too cute, isn't he?! So darling! :)
I have used Superior's King Tut cotton thread - brown variegated - for the quilting. I've tried not to quilt over the snowmen, I think they look much better without being 'tangled' in quilting thread - lol!
I added decorative snowman button on each side to hold the hanging loop (??) better... Don't know if this solution is the best one, but... I wanted to use buttons, and those are the only ones I had that is suitable... I used the same buttons to decorate the wall quilt I made using the same fabrics.
This is all for now... Believe it or not; I still have one table runner and two table toppers to finish. When I purchased the Moda Marbles for the binding, the web shop was sold out for one of the fabrics and is expected to the shop at the end of the month.
While making these projects, I tried to focus on the snowmen stripes. I did well; there's not one single snowman left! :) What was left of the fabrics, I have cut into 2.5 inch squares and strips. Not bad - huh?! :)
It's 7 o'clock evening here; I'm off to work on a new project! :)
