In keeping with our holiday theme, here is one of our favorite snowman quilts. This cheerful design by Karen Eckmeier features eight snowmen who are holding hands (er, sticks) to form a circle. "Silly Snowmen" is #8 in her “Circle of Friends” Series, which includes patterns that 'revolve' around a certain theme. Karen says: "My art is happy and upbeat, concentrating on the positive and whimsical side of life."
Silly Snowmen, 25 x 25", by Karen Eckmeier at The Quilted Lizard
As the description says, you could give your winter months a splash of color with this gathering of cardinals, blue jays, holly leaves and snowmen that form a giant snowflake. There are blue, green, red and lavender mittens that revolve around the snowflake/star in the center.
Fabulous Flamingos, 25 x 25", by Karen Eckmeier at The Quilted Lizard
If you live in Florida, snowmen might seem out of place... but these flamingos would be right at home. The "Fabulous Flamingos" pattern is #7 in the "Circle of Friends" series. The flamingos are accompanied by a collection of tropical flora and fauna including parrots, fish, reef coral and palm trees.
