Seasons of the Heart January BOM

It was a busy day today, visiting out-of-town relatives, but I wanted to take a minute to share a photo of an appliqued quilt block that I finished yesterday:

This is the first in a 2009 Block of the Month (BOM) series, Seasons of the Heart, designed by Sandi at A Legacy of Stitches. Sandi has created a block to represent each month of the year, designed for fusible applique. The edges are blanket-stitched by hand and the details are embroidered.

I want my finished quilt to have a warm, country feeling, so I plan to use various homespuns for my block backgrounds. When I saw this cute little snowman, I just couldn't resist joining in. I'm really looking forward to more of her patterns. Thanks, Sandi!

Oh, I like your snowman, Heather!! And I like the idea of using homespuns for the blocks. Funny thing.........just last night I was looking at my homespuns and picked a blue plaid one so I can do a block using woolfelt!
