RED patched happy snowman!



Years ago when I made real quilts, one of the easiest to make was called Crazy Quilt. It had no pattern, just random pieces of fabric were appliqued onto a backing. That's what I did with this card for the Ways To Use It challenge at SCS today. I had a lot of RED scraps (Gee! Go figure!!), so I took out the folder FULL of them, and patched them on a piece of RED. I paper pieced the snowman as well, and popped up a hat to show just how happy he was.

DH and I are off for the day. I'm going to my favorite LSS, we're meeting a friend for lunch, then groceries (that part is yucky!). I'll be back to comment tonight. Have a wonderful day. Hugs!
