Flannel Snowman Quilt

I wanted to show you the little snowman throw I made for my daughter in law.  It's was a really super quick quilt- mostly strips.  The checkerboards were pieced but the rest of the work is all done by the fabric.  It took almost as long to bind it as it did to piece the top!

Here's a close-up, but it's difficult to see the quilting.  I just did large swirls.  Not quite stippling- just easy swirling all over.

Emily posing snuggled up with her new quilt.  It's so nice to make a quilt for someone and have it so appreciated!

December Giveaway Winner- Be Colourful Pattern

Sorry I forgot to do this yesterday.  I was just having tooooo much fun putting decorations away and cleaning (NOT!).

I was really impressed with the number of people who genuinely hoped to win this giveaway.  It just goes to show you how much people like Jacqueline de Jonge's patterns.  I'm so sorry I don't have a few dozen of these to give away!  Thank you all for entering, and especially to those of you who sent photos of Christmas quilts for me to share.  I loved seeing your handiwork.

The trusty random number generator tells me that this pattern will be traveling across the border to B.C., Canada..... to live at Peg's house!  Peg is an avid quilter and blogger.  She has several blogs.... one of them being Pieces on my Mind.  CONGRATS, PEG!  I'll send you an email.

I'll post a January giveaway soon!
