I had to seek help from the local Office Depot store to increase my appliqué pattern to a size that would fit nicely on a 16 inch square mini quilt.
I got these little guys all fused on and ready to appliqué them down.
Now to quilt the background. I searched several ideas and finally just decided to go with this simple snowflake idea.
A few different sizes to fit and I am ready to quilt it.
I added the button in three different sizes and it is ready to go.
This whole idea came of realizing I needed a Christmas runner for our neighbors. She brings over some really wonderful gifts every year for the last two and I have been left feeling a bit surprised so do not want to have a repeat this year. I need two more of these blocks and then will quilt them with a spiral quilting on each.
Last week I posted my oldest grandson relaxing in the pool with his dog and mentioned that their ducks often join in the fun too. One of my blog watchers wanted to see the ducks. Thus, here is Ben our youngest grandson in the pool with the lady duck.
And her handsome mate that often joins in as well.
Adorable mini--this will help to keep you cool lol hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
oh how fun!ReplyDelete
love, love the mini...
too funny about the duck and the pool...
Hi DonnaleeQ! Great idea to have something ready for your neighbor at the holidays. No more feeling or being surprised! And what a cute shot of your grandson in the pool with the duck! How fun that they can swim together. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
The snowmen mini is darling and doesn't it feel great to be ahead of the game in the Christmas gifts!??!! Hilarious your grandson swimming with the duck but her "handsome" mate? Really? I guess it's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Lol!ReplyDelete
Love the snowmen!ReplyDelete
Your snowmen are so cute and the duck made me giggle. Happy Friday and thank you for linking up with Put your foot down.ReplyDelete
Snowmen - too cute for August! Love the duck in the pool!ReplyDelete
I think having an extra holiday runner or two on hand is a good practice for all of us. You never know when an opportunity to gift one will arise. : )ReplyDelete
That will be a great gift to have on-hand for your neighbor!ReplyDelete
Cute snowman and woman block. That next block is so pretty and will make a wonderful table runner block.ReplyDelete
I just love that snowman and the fabrics you chose. It all came together perfectly. Interesting critters in the pool!ReplyDelete
Cute snowmen block!ReplyDelete
Your snowmen are cute! I'm curious about how you were stitching the snowflakes. Did you sew right on the paper and then tear it off? What kind of paper do you use for that? Thanks!ReplyDelete
Cute little snowmen! I'm curious about the snowflake "papers" too. I would love to have a pool for me and my dogs, but mine seem to be afraid of the water. That's great that he gets to swim with the ducks, too.ReplyDelete
cute snowmen...or womenReplyDelete
