|Renee Y.'s CQJP 2014 March Block|
Crazy quilting and embroidery are two of my very favorite things. It amazes me how a few fabrics can be completely transformed with the addition of a few threads, ribbons, trims, buttons, beads and charms.

I found a bundle of flannel prints at a quilt shop many years ago. Isn't the snowman adorable?!
The Beaded Link Chain Stitch
made an adorable frame for the snowman. EdMar Lola #034 blue variegated rayon floss and Darice Beads Jewelry Designer clear glass transparent rainbow seed beads (size 10/0) transformed into a sparkling frame.

The white trim (found at JoAnn Fabric), a full skein of EdMar Lola #087 brown variegated rayon floss (yep, the whole skein), DMC #5 silver metallic floss, DMC white rayon floss, DMC #12 white pearl cotton, DMC #666 red floss, and white seed beads turned the rest of the block into a landscape with a blanket of snow.

White 4 mm silk ribbon; a variety of seed beads, petite seed beads, and pearl beads; a snowflake charm, more DMC white rayon floss; DMC #5 silver metallic floss, Anchor white #8 pearl cotton, and EdMar Glory #071 blue variegated floss finished the bottom up with winter-colored flowers and snowflakes.

It is not a perfect block.

But it was created by hand with love and care.
(And I think it's cute - so there!)
