Mimi is the sweet lady who kept our girls during the day. Audrey started with her when she was four months old and stayed until she was 3 and started preschool. Andrea started staying with her when she was 2 months old and started preschool at 2. Needless to say, she was a big part of our girls' lives and she gets a quilt!
Mimi is a lover of Christmas, so she got a Christmas quilt. Her family makes and sells Christmas Yard Art at Canton every year, so for about 1/3 of the year, they are pretty festive in their house.
I received this panel of snowmen years ago as a bonus with an order of fabric from a small online shop that doesn't exist anymore. I knew I wanted to cut it up and make a table runner or quilt, but it languished in the sewing room forever.
Of course, I decided a few weeks before Christmas that this was happening, so it became a late January Christmas/farewell present.
I fused and then raw-edge appliquéd the snowflakes and then hand-quilted around them.
I used white DMC pearl cotton size 12 to outline all of the straight lines as well.
Here are the happy snowmen!
I used some leftover red bias tape I had for the binding.
