I love a snowman quilt at the holidays. And afterwards, too!

Let's face it.

When January comes, there's nothing so sad as stripping away all the holiday decorations. Everything looks, well...


One way to remedy the emptiness is to do part of your holiday decorating with snowman quilts...

...or snowflake quilts, for that matter.

They fit right in as soon as it gets cold in your neck of the woods and right on through the Christmas holiday season.

And no one thinks they're out of place after New Year's—especially if you've been ingenious with your fabric choices. And we quilters are very good at that!

Snowman quilt patterns and kits to makeSnowman quilt patterns are the BEST!

Pieced blocks mixed with raw edge applique blocks. The applique template sheets are already reversed. A time saver!

The sample on the cover is stitched with Snow Sweet, Painters Palette and Basic fabrics from Riley Blake Designs.

I really think the fabric with writing in the border makes this quilt complete.

UPDATE: Yep. This is the one for me this year. I usually work on Christmas quilts AFTER the holiday is over. Don't know why...just how I roll. 

Look for updates on my progress especially because I'm not a fan of fusible applique. I much prefer this invisible machine applique technique. 

I also plan to paper piece the pieced blocks—I think all of them are already available here on the Generations Quilt Patterns website in the sizes that are called for. 

I encourage you to quilt to your own strengths. Quilt directions show you how the designer made it. You don't have to follow them if something else works for you better!
