BOM 2014 – January -Chilly Silly Snowmen

Posted Saturday, January 25th, 2014 in Accuquilt Go cutter, Fabric Stash | Tags: , ,

Here we go again! I found a cute, free, BOM that I just had to make.  I made a few changes to the construction of the blocks but not the appearance. For Christmas, Bob gave me a Snowball die for my Accuquilt Go Cutter that is the same size as the snowman face. Rather than cut lots of two inch squares and sew them back together, I used the die to cut the white fabric. It also cut the blue fabric for the corners on the white squares. I cut strips for the side pieces of the block rather then piece them. The eyes are 3/4 inch black buttons. I sewed the buttons onto the faces before I joined the blocks together.

The pattern is from Quilt Doodle Doodles. The directions are very clear and easy to follow. I think I have found a new favorite blog to follow!

You are sew clever with the way you constructed your blocks. Glad I haven’t cut mine. I am going to make a wall hanging, sew I will be sizing mine down by half. Your method will make this much easier. Thanks
