Once there was a Snowman

Well it feels very good to get this done!!!! I knew that January would be very busy for me so I started this 1st thing after Christmas and have worked on it in my spare time. I really had to step out of my comfort zone with this design. I had a whole different quilt in mind till I got my partners preferences.

All appliqué are made of wool and machine appliquéd.
The quilting is quite primitive. All quilting is done with pearl cotton, so needless to say all the knots are showing on the wrong side. Sorry partner but that's part of the charm.
I had to add the promise of spring with this cardinal. I watch the Cardinals feed outside my kitchen window in the summer.
Close up of the 2 appliqué styles.

Here in Oklahoma we have been enjoying wounderful temps. in the 50's to 60's. Well tonight a cold front is cmming in and we should get snow.
