Step 2

Cut a piece of fabric and a piece of batting 11″ square. Layer the fabric over the batting and quilt the two layers together.

Step 3

Roughly cut out all the pieces and fuse them to the wrong side of the fabric.

I used white felt for the snowman head, and Timeless Treasure prints for the rest of the fabrics: charcoal Sketch for the hat, red Pop for the ribbon, orange Sketch for the carrot, and solid black for the eyes.

Step 4

Hold the snowman face up to a window so you can see the face markings through the felt and mark the placement of the eyes, nose and the mouth.

Step 5

Cut out the pieces neatly on the solid lines. Where there’s a dotted line, leave a little extra seam allowance.

Step 6

Peel off the paper backing and layer the pieces on the background block. The bottom edge of the head should line up with the bottom edge of the block. The hat should overlap the top of the head.

Fuse the pieces in place.

Step 7

Stitch the edges of all the pieces down. I like to use a simple straight stitch and black thread.

Step 8

Trim the block to size. Mine is 10 1/2 inches.

    Hello Wendi –

    Thank you so very much for your continued generosity! You are amazing…and your patterns are always so fun and playful!! I just made my first two appliqué patterns last night for my grandson’s quilt. They just make me smile just looking at them! I can’t believe how fun it was. I have never done this before. You have really helped my spirit and I wanted you to know. Have a wonderful time in Switzerland.

    I did it! My first applique project. It’s not perfect, but I think it’s pretty darn good! I cut it short, obviously. It measures 9.5 x 11.

    I want to send a picture, but I don’t know how! Can somebody help me do that?
