I love to quilt and design my own patterns. I have a gallery, patterns and sale items on my site. I also custom design what anyone would like. So if there is anything special that you would like for baby, anniversary, wedding I can work with you to make that something special.
Yesterday we got some snow flurry's and it looked so pretty coming down. It was not a lot just enough to give the birdhouses a white roof. It was only making the roads wet, but it sure looked pretty.
So I got to thinking, how about making a Snowman table topper? I got out my blue fabric that looked like snowflakes.
I added a dark blue and a white to my snowflake fabrics. I wanted to have a little contrast. Anyway, I came up with this block. It is made of 2 inch squares and measures 10 1/2 inches. I made a total of 5 of these blocks.
Then I made my snowmen. I wanted one for each corner. I made their hats and scarfs out of my scrap bin.
I placed them diagonally onto a 10 inch block. Two facing to the left and two facing to the right. I used my machine and appliqued them with the blanket stitch and invisible thread.
I put them all together with a 1 inch sashing around all the blocks. I machine quilted it in an all over random pattern, going around the snowmen to accent them. I then painted eyes on the four snowmen with black dimensional fabric paint.
The total size of the table topper is: 36 1/2" X 36 1/2".
