Let It Snow

No, I'm not really ready for snow yet, but I am ready to get back to my Let It Snow quilt.  Let It Snow was the second of my two Christmas in July projects and now I have everything I need to finish it (hopefully before Christmas).

On Friday, I machine appliqued all the orange wool "carrot" noses and a few sets of black wool eyes (I'll be using buttons for the eyes in the remaining blocks, but they go on after quilting). 

Next step was marking.  I used the set of concentric circles I bought at the last weekend's quilt show to mark circles on each snowman block.  I'll do something yet-to-be-finalized in the borders.

Then I used my huge supply of safety pins to pin the backing, batting, and top together, a process that is a bit tough on the fingertips.

I've started quilting,  Three faces down, nine to go, plus borders.  Yes, it can be done by Christmas!
