Let It Snow - It's Finished!

I had plenty of time for sewing over the Thanksgiving weekend and finished up Let It Snow, one of my Christmas In July projects.

I'm happy with the way it came out.  It's pretty cute and something a little different for me.  The carrot noses are wool and the eyes and mouths are wool, buttons, and snaps.  Here's a close-up of one of the faces.

This quilt is pretty easy; I'd say it's suitable for a beginner.  The hardest part for me was taking care not to nip off the tips of the flying geese as I attached the binding. 

A special thanks to Thelma of Cupcakes N Daisies; I won the Let It Snow pattern in a giveaway on Thelma's blog and without that win, I would probably never have stumbled across this pattern or made this wallhanging.  Let It Snow will be my January quilt for my kitchen.  For Christmas, I've hung up Strippy Trees, a quilt I made several years ago from a Possibilites pattern.

So far, my Christmas decorating consists of a few quilts about the house.  But I'll be doing more over the next week.

I love your Let It Snow quilt!! I almost bought that pattern Saturday! I love that you'll be able to leave it up longer than just the Christmas season. Strippy Trees is gorgeous! Very striking!
