any input on how to quilt this would be appreciated.   should i just ignore the appliqued snow flying and ribbons in the air?

Maybe just free-form swirling lines (like the wind) on the snowman blocks and SITD on the others.  Or maybe pine tree shapes or star shapes.  I 'll have to cross this bridge when I finish mine, too.  I'll be interested in what you end up doing, Gini.  It's really an adorable quilt!

Gini,

I like Linny's idea. 

From the block photos by Bunny Hill it looks like she did loop-de-loops around the snow men. Not sure about the pieced blocks.

Libby,

I only have one completed block as well. I can't seem to stick to one method. Plus I have so many other things going.

 

I should correct myself, I have one block done twice, and don't like either. I find most of the pieces are really small to work with and I haven't done much applique so can not figure out how to get the them to look like they should. I am almost tempted to applique the main pieces and then hand embroider the smaller. We'll see after the holidays.

kris, i embroidered some of the smaller pieces,  you can use  heart shaped buttons for hearts.  or snowflake buttons or real ribbon, which is easier than appliquing ribbon.   it doesn't all have to be applique.    gini

Libby, Gini,

I'm actually hand embroidering one of the blocks right now. I just don't think my head is in the right place for this. I keep changing what I want to do. I'm almost done with my current block and will be posting a photo in a few hours.

I just joined the applique group.  I love this quilt.  Where did she find that pattern?

Judy,

this was a free BOM from Bunny Hill Designs from last year. It is no longer free but you can still purchase the pattern.
