Two more for Christmas
This weekend I whipped up this little snowman wallhanging for my powder room. I have something a little more elegant planned for this room but since there is not enough time to get that finished for this year I decided to go with something a little more whimsical. The needleturned Snowman design is adapted from a block from "Snowbound" which was Bunnyhill's 2010 BOM. I pieced the little red and white checked border cause I didn't have a red and white stripe fabric and love how it turned out. I went with very little quilting, partly to let the fabric speak for itself and mostly cause I was lazy and just wanted it finished fast! Looking at it in this picture it almost looks like a panel, oh dear is that a good or a bad thing?
And here is one that I forgot about when I was taking pictures around my house. I made this a few years ago and can't find the pattern. It is fused and then buttonhole stitched by hand and again not much quilting.
