Snowmen Table Topper

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".
