Please allow me to introduce you to one of my favorite quilts …………. “Snowbound”!  This quilt was featured as a free block of the month on the Bunny Hill website a couple of years ago.  I finished it LAST SPRING and got it quilted and then promptly put it away in my linen closet because it was then Summertime and you don’t want to use a snowman quilt when it’s 100 degrees outside.  But for January, it will be just fine.  All of the snowman blocks are hand applique with embroidered embellishments.  They are pieced together with Irish Chain blocks.  It was totally worth all the time spent I think!


This is a picture I took of it before I started quilting it.  It was laid out on the dining room floor, already sandwiched and ready to pin.  I really do need to take some more pictures of it now that I have it done.  I should have taken them as soon as it was done and don’t know why I didn’t.  But you can see how it looks. 
I have lots and lots of quilts in my closet that I need to share with you.  But for now, enjoy this one!

Hugs,  Merry Gay


  1. Oh, Merry Gay, this is just gorgeous! Everything from the basic pattern design to your use of colors to the fine workmanship make it a true heirloom. What a beautiful quilt! Now, I want to see the others in your closet.

    1. Thank you so much for the compliment. Janice, you are such an accomplished seamstress, that I hold your opinion is very high regard. I do have several quilts to share on my blog, so you will get to peak into my closet! LOL. Thanks for taking the time to look.
