Merry Merry Snowmen Sew Along - Quilt Top! WINNER POSTED! Sign In/Join

Can you really believe we are ready to put these blocks in to a quilt top form?

Our prize this round will come from the prize kitty. It will be a 50.00 gift certificate to your favorite quilt shop online. The winner will tell me where to purchase it from.

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.

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:

Mine is all together (has been for awhile). I'll post a pic tonight from home. I had it hanging in my studio for several weeks trying to decide on a backing and how to quilt it. I guess it's time now to make some decisions. I'm anxious to get it done because DH and DGS told me when I started it that I would never be done in time for this Christmas. Boy are they going to eat some crow!!

Thank you ladies but, unfortunately you would have to fight my DIL over this one. I've already had to fight with the husband he just loves red. My thing is Santa though. I had so much fun with this. My addictive behavior wanted to keep going. I may have to make another one.

I am so impressed! Some finished quilts and they are beauties. You ladies rock!
A job well done. Can't wait to see them all. I have been to a couple of quilt shows this year and seen a couple of quilts made from this pattern, it appears to be a very popular quilt, with good reason.

beautiful job ladies. They are all just wonderful.

So different looking just by changing the colors.

I have blocks 1,2,3,4, and 7 done. I will finish it and I am taking it on my two week trek to Henderson, NC back thru Odenville, AL and then back home. We will see what might happen in that time frame. I am still hoping to get it done for Christmas just wont be making the deadlines for any prizes.

Very nice, you ladies have all wowed me with your beauties...

To delete the pic of your # 9 block, look at the bottom right of your post, and you will see 3 little icons the first one is to post a reply and quote someone...the second is a folder with an eraser ( that is the one you choose ) then you click on the left where you would normally see add attachment, and it will say edit or delete.
