Free pattern day: Snowmen !

Snowmen are customarily made as part of a family project in celebration of winter. Since winter is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, here are some *free* snowman and snowflake patterns and tutorials !

Snuggle Snowmen, 44 x 64", a tutorial by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting at Piece n’ Quilt

Snowman Snow Days, 69 x 81", by AE Nathan Co., Inc.

Here are the downloadable pattern files:  Page 1 and Page 2.

It's not often that we see pieced snowmen, so we were excited when we came across this quilt.  We first spotted the quilt at the Runaway Quilters website; it was the subject of a 2008 class by Rita English.   The pattern was designed in 2005 for a fabric collection by A.E. Nathan.  If you have ever shopped at JoAnn, WalMart, or Hobby Lobby, you may be familiar with A.E. Nathan fabrics; for their latest collections and projects, and more sources, please visit the A.E. Nathan website.  With their generous permission we are providing the free Snow Days pattern, shown above, to Quilt Inspiration readers.

Snowman in the Window by Marinda Stewart for Michael Miller Fabrics

Marinda Stewart used attic windows blocks to showcase the cute Snowman's Land collection by Michael Miller Fabrics.  The fabric has since been retired, but the free pattern is available at the link.
