Here a Nose... There a Nose...

I am a huge fan of anything "Snow"... maybe because I live in a part of the world where snow is a rare treat.  I recently saw a photo of the cutest quilt and immediately knew I had to make it.  It quickly became a project for my hubby (a.k.a. the Mad Quilter) and me.  The face shapes are there... and the flying geese (Hubs did those.. first time to make them... he did a great job!)... and there are "carrot noses" everywhere going in all directions!  I had a blast adding.



Now I am adding a border of embroidery.  Once that is done, Hubs will do some quilting in the ditch and then I am going to add black button eyes and mouths.  The buttons will add some tacking through the entire quilt.

This will be a nice big wall hanging for our breakfast room through the Winter season. What fun!  This Mississippi Girl will have quilty snow this year!
