Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Guild Block Swap

I’m a member of 2 quilt guilds. This past week the smaller group had their meeting and a spontaneous block swap was announced.  We are doing snowmen. The blocks will be due at our February meeting.  The guidelines are pretty simple:

  • the blocks must be 12 1/2″ to finish at 12″
  • any technique
  • all blocks must be identical

We had been talking about using Crayons to color quilts so I plan to incorporate that in my block.  I went on line and looked for coloring book pages and found a snowman face with a top hat that I’m using for inspiration.

I plan to use crayons to color the nose. I’m not sure if I’ll embroider or paint the head, smile and eyes.  I have access to an Accuquilt system with a die for holly and berries and plan to cut those out next week.
