Thank you Ginny. I actually saw a comforter with a similar design on a website, found the Browning Deer Head silhouette as a machine applique on Etsy and then just went from there. Her father is a hunter and his last name is Remington, so I thought it was fitting. I asked if they had a theme or color scheme and they said they didn't so I just did what I wanted. It is a quilt you can make in a day.
My snowmen are all fused and some are sewn. I need to get the rest stitched up and off the list. Dec. 1st will get here faster than we imagine and I don't want to wait until the last minute! I'm going to be gone for a bit and I have baby quilts to make. ;)
I have to hold off for a while....rotator cuff surgery...I will be finished in time...my friend is helping me.
So sorry ...that is no fun. Glad you have a nice friend, though. Feel better soon, Cheryl.
You heal up quick now!
Oh dear. A friend just had that done, no fun. Heal quickly and don’t exert yourself.
Its good to have friends like that! Very nice backup plan too! I wish you a speedy recovery.
If I read this right, no I am not taking any more pain meds (snicker), it just has to be snowmen only, pieced or otherwise. Just asking in case I change my mind on my block. I am in love with Roly Poly Snowman fabric that just came out. So cute! Plus, I have another idea brewing, just wanting to be sure I have enough time to do it. Oh decisions!
Basically wintery snowpeople with no Christmas in it. We have plenty of that. Lol
But your snowpeople can have friends included in the blocks with them like animals ect. You can have trees and stuff. Just trying to look more wintery than anything.
I love that cute fabric, too. But I am going to resist it ... I hope.
I had to go look at it. Lol. That is cute fabric.
