Free pattern day ! Snowflake and Snowman quilts

Snowmen are often made as part of a family project in celebration of winter. Here are some *free* snowman and snowflake quilt patterns and tutorials! To go to a pattern: Scroll down the page until you see the quilt you like, then click on the words "CLICK for PDF download" (or the hyperlinked website name) in the title above the quilt. Note: Scientifically, all snowflakes are crystals with exactly 6 points.  However, some designers have taken artistic license in portraying these winter motifs.

p.s. Also check out our E-Bay shop for great bargains on quilt patterns, fabric, and vintage jewelry!

It's not often that we see pieced snowmen, so we were excited when we came across this quilt.  The pattern was designed in 2005 for a fabric collection by A.E. Nathan.  With their permission we are providing the free Snow Days pattern to Quilt Inspiration readers.  You can see a finished snowman quilt, which turned out very cute, at Pots and Pins:
