Snow Many Friends

Ok, I am pretty sure that I have already posted a picture of this quilt, but I am unable to find it.  If my memory serves me correctly (which it probably isn't,) I posted the quilt top and not the finished/quilted project. So, in the spirit of catching up, I want to post the finished product.

Just a little reminder...

My friendship group exchanged snowman blocks earlier this year.

In case you are unfamiliar with a block exchange, let me give you a quick explanation.  Each member of the group completed eight of the same blocks.  (The only requirement was that they had a snowman included.  There were no size or style parameters.)  So, when we met to exchange the blocks, we gave away all save one of our blocks and then received seven different blocks (one from each of the other members) that we could use to create our friendship quilt.   In order to complete the quilt, I created one more block to have an "even 9" (quilters will probably understand that...others probably not.)

So, here is my little sweetie:
This is one of the four quilts that I entered in the Fallbrook Quilt Show.  It was great to have them lined up with other quilts from my friendship group.  I think that I took some photos at the show, let me see if I can rummage them up.
Well, shucks, I think I may be missing someone's quilt.  We didn't all enter them, but I thought more did.  Below are photos of my quilt, along with Sue's and Linda's.

These were super-fun to create and will always have a special place with my Holiday quilts.  :)
