I have a very large snowman collection. So large that once the Christmas decorations go away, the snowman come out for January. I did some furniture re-arranging before Christmas and as a result, ended up with an empty space on the wall. A big empty space.
Well, that just won't do! I spent some time going through some quilting magazines to see if I could find something that I could whip up quickly and get on the wall and nothing. Than I had an idea of something. I started pulling some scraps and began cutting. And in the end, I ended up with nothing close to what I had originally planned(isn't that always the way? lol).
It's not very big, about 45 by 50ish. The snowflakes are what I was supposed to put on Mom's Christmas present.
I couldn't be happier with it. So simple; just randomly sized strips sewn together. I than measured the wall space and decided how big the border should be and cut the strips shorter. I love the borders on just the two sides. I just have to decide now if I want to bind it in white of the snowflake border print; I'm leaning toward the print as I am simply in love with it.

This is also my first quiltie finish of 2012. I would say I'm off to a pretty good start.
