Snow Crazy

I belong to a small quilting group that meets once a month, sometimes more, sometimes less.  There are only 7 of us, counting me.  We always meet for lunch for birthdays and get the best birthday presents ever from each other.  In December, Sheila made the cutest snowman quilt for Angela for her 50th birthday. It is pictured below.  
In January when we met, we all decided we wanted to make one for ourselves.  We all traced our snowmen and some started coloring them.  The remainder of the quilt was to work at our own pace.  I got my blocks colored right away.  Coloring wasn't as easy as I remembered it in school.  Have you ever tried to color on fabric?  It moves a whole lot more than paper does!  And then there's the whole shading thing.  Believe it or not, I didn't do so well in art class in school.  My oldest son Drew on the other hand has all the artsy, fartsy genes.  He can draw anything and gets the whole shading thing too!  He should have helped me shade these snowmen. 

Then the daunting task of embroidery.  Surprisingly it went pretty fast.  A few 10 hour trips to Missouri, an airplane ride to California and a 12 hour trip to Mississippi helped out with that task.  Gregg was amazed that I could stay awake in the car long enough to do this. 

Anyway, 10 months later, I have finished the Snow Crazy quilt.  Here is my quilt.  Now if it would only snow.... WHAT!!!!  No way, I'm not even ready for that, never will be!  I'd rather look at my quilt and dream about it snowing.

Dont' forget about the FREE QUILTING giveaway.  We are 1 more person closer than yesterday at reaching 100 followers to give the $100 worth of quilting away.

  1. Can you tell me the name of the Snowman quilt pattern? Love it. My daughter collects snowmen and that would be a great addition. Dolores

  2. It is called "Snow Crazy" by Jana Davidson and published by Turnberry Lane Patterns. It was a lot of fun to make and really went together fast, even considering the embroidery time for the snowmen.
