I Wish You a Merry Quilt-a-long Block 5

Block number five was supposed to be a pieced snowman. Again, I didn't want to cut my background fabric so I decided to applique him.  I'm trying to stick with a red, white, and green fabrics, but the snowman had to have black eyes and mouth and an orange nose.  I close a dark orange so at least it's close to red.

One gal in the Facebook group for this quilt-a-long added a string of lights in her snowman's hands.  I had to do it too.  I fussy cut the red and green lights so they'd have a little gold at the top.

I also changed the snowman's hat from a top hat to a winter cap so that I could make it red instead of black.  I really love how this guy turned out!

Now to start on block 6!

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Hi Suzy,
    What a fun and friendly looking snowman! I am participating in the QAL, too. I look forward to seeing your angel. Next week I think they release two blocks - eek! ~smile~ Roseanne
