I’m once again honored to be part of another volume of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks!

My block, Frosty is #1150.

Suzn+Quilts+Frosty+Block+QM+Vol+12

He is pieced & then his face & scarf are applique.

He’ll make a great after Christmas project when the snow starts flying.

By the way,

fabric snowmen are the only ones I truly love.

If I could move to a sunny & warm climate 365 days a year I’d be happy!

With Frosty here though, I can stay where it’s warm & sew him all day.

Suzn+Quilts+Frosty+QM+runner

How cute he would be at opposite ends of a runner for your winter table.

You would have space in the middle to put a pretty bowl of snowballs (real or the cookie kind)!
