Merry Merry Snowmen Sew Along - Block #8 - WINNER posted! Sign In/Join

Our prize sponsor this round is a quilt shop in Virginia who gave me a 99.00 quilt kit to be used as one of the prizes. I will have to make a photo of it and update the shop name once I get home this weekend from my 2 week excursion to Bama.

Merry Merry Snowmen Sew Along!!

Pattern designed by Anne Sutton, of Bunny Hill Designs

Merry Merry Snowmen - Size 62 x 66 inches

During the sew along, you will all have a time frame to complete each block. Completed means -- complete -- It does not mean applying fusible to your pieces and ironing them down only. It means adding the stitches around your pieces that anchor them to the blocks. Please play fair.

You will be uploading a photo of your completed block on a pre-selected day here on the forum so we can share with the other members not in the sew along. A Flickr Group has been started for our blocks and you all will be able to upload your photos there as well. Just follow this link to our group and as you upload your photo, you will be added to the group. http://www.flickr.com/groups/merrymerrysnowmen/

Everyone who finishes their blocks by the schedule will be put in to a drawing to win a prize. First name drawn will win the current prize. Some of the prizes have been listed and others will be listed as I know what they will be. I have a few sponsors and un-sponsored monthly prizes will come from the prize kitty.

You can not win the prize more than once in a 3 month period. We still expect you to work on your blocks for the next 2 current months though and share photos just as you had been doing.

At the end when all blocks are finished, everyone will then have a time frame to get their blocks in to quilt top form. A winner will be drawn from all who post their photo by the specified time.

After that everyone will have a time frame to get their quilt finished and bound. Everyone who completes this will be put in a drawing for a much nicer prize and the name drawn will win.

A 12th and final prize will be given to the name drawn from all eligible entries of those who took part 100%. 100% means that you made each block and uploaded a photo of it by each deadline. You were never late and you finished your quilt by the end time permitted.

Here is the schedule I have set up in order for us to have our quilts finished and ready to use for Christmas 2013.

I will start a brand new thread for each installment. PLEASE do not upload any other photos but the current block we are working on. Thank you.

September 14 - October 8 --- Photos of BLOCK #9 are due to post on October 8th by 7 a.m. Eastern time. Prize will be a 25.00 gift certificate from The Fat Quarter Shop.
www.fatquartershop.com

October 8 - November 5 --- Photos of completed quilt tops are to be posted on November 5th by 7 a.m. Eastern time. All sashing and borders have been applied and it is ready for quilting!

November 5 - December 7 --- Photos of finished quilts WITH binding are to be posted on December 7th by 7 a.m. Eastern time

Then --- ENJOY your brand new Christmas quilt!

IF you cannot upload photos to the forum you can email me a photo of your block and I can upload it for you. IF you need to do this do not wait until the last minute to email me the photo. ALL emailed photos should be in my inbox the day before they are due. This gives me time to re-size and get them posted on time.

I am keeping sheets here at home to keep up with who finished their blocks for each round. The symbols were getting too confusing.

For the ones who have not finished blocks we have already been through... Remember, you can still get your name in the pot for 100% participation if you get them finished and post a photo.

There will be 2 - 100% - participation prizes in the end... One for those who were on time every time... and one for everyone who made all of the blocks, and finished their quilt top by the deadline.

So get busy, you have not been left behind. Smile

Here is the thread for posting ALL past blocks as you finish:

Here's block number eight. Can't believe that we are almost done with these blocks...and will be sad to see this fun stop!

The eyes of the snowmen in the trick look too large to me...but, then again they are blowing in the wind!

I thought about my daddy when working this block as he loved old trucks...and this block reminded me of an old style truck.

Great blocks! Green truck, red truck, blue truck, I can't wait to see what other colors of truck we will have!

This block is one of the ones that I wasn't sure I liked. But once I decided on colors it became one of my favorites. I wish I had this truck in my garage!

Now this is the 4th attempt to post block 8. It is harder to post the pic than it is to make the post.

All the blocks are so awesome.


Sew, sew, and sew some more that's my motto!

Sorry to abandon you all for 2 weeks but I took Allie home and visited my family for a while, ending with a trip to Tupelo, MS to visit warmbuns for 2 days... Ely came down to go with me so she got to see 3 new states to her... She loved Alabama and its beautiful rolling hills and mountains..SO glad to be home though! Smile

Ely is working away on her blocks but not in the correct order... When she has some of the past blocks finished to show, we will upload her photos on that thread.

Good to see so many pretty blocks already. I have had computer problems and have been off the boards for a couple of weeks. I'll have to see if I have my pic on this computer or the one at home. I'll post as soon as I find it.

I've not been able to complete the last few months on-time, but still plan to get caught up at some point. I love all the pics - looking good! We sold a house, moved to another, been busy getting settled, making new friends, oh yeah and started substitute teaching. Only time I sewed since early June was to fix a hem. Hope I don't forget how. LOL

Keep up the good work all.

I have 1 1/2 blocks finished dd... I have been saying I will get caught up... but painting the upstairs threw a big whammy in that... But the rooms look great and I am about ready to show photos so it was worth the wait to work on the blocks. Smile

Love the snowmen on the side of you truck Meme! All the trucks look so cute.

I have al my blocks done and am stumped on quilting. I was going to quilt each block seperately but now I think I should put them together and go from there. My problem is I don't have the skills/confidence to quilt it the way I imagine it.

Our prize sponsor for this round was a Virginia based quilt shop, Threads Run Through it owned by Lori Clayton. Please visit her shop and send her a message letting her know we appreciate her for the donation of this 99.00 quilt kit.

http://www.trtiwequilt.com/

If you would, it would be nice if you could choose at least 2 of our sponsors and let them know we truly do appreciate everything they have donated toward the sew along.

So far we have only had to use 30.00 of the monies left over after I paid for the patterns and paid the fee that Paypal charged me for you to pay for your pattern and other items you may have wanted. That leaves us more to use for the final 2 prizes! Smile

The winner of the quilt kit is none other than...

shequilts!!!

Please send me your name and address in a pm and I will mail this to you when I go to mail orders this week.

Congrats!!

I went camping this past weekend and worked on mine. But it was block 7. I still got to embroider the snowmens orange noses to finish it up.

I think I will skip to nine so I can get my name in the pot for a prize.

Congratulations to everyone who is finished, keeping up, and winning prizes. This has been fun to follow and see all the different versions.
