  • Refer to photo for design and placement.


  1. Cut appliqués. Cut all appliqués as stated on the pattern pieces. All appliqués are drawn in reverse. Trace each shape onto sticky side of iron on fusible paper. Cut out each shape allowing 1/4" between each. Peel off paper and press drawn-on shape onto wrong side of fabric specified on patterns. Cut out each appliqué along drawn line. Use a pencil to draw Snowmen eyes and mouths in place using a pencil. Set aside.
  2. Assemble quilts. Note: Build each appliqué from the bottom up. Overlap each as needed to achieve desired layout. Make sure appliqués are placed inside 1/4" seam allowance around outer edge of each Itty Bitty Quilt.

    For background, fold blue print fabric in half, wrong sides together, to measure 11" x 18". Use pencil to draw three 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles on top fabric. Arrange and press appliqués in place. Stitch around each appliqué by hand or machine.
  3. Make faces. To make eyes on snowmen, thread a needle with one strand of black floss and French Knot. Use one strand of black floss to Straight Stitch the cross-stitched mouths.
  4. Quilt. Slip batting between front and back of folded background. Quilt as you like. Cut quilts apart along drawn lines.
  5. Finish. From crazy quilt print, cut two strips 2 1/4" x width of fabric. Sew binding strips together end to end. Fold wrong sides together and press. Bind to finish.
