Frosty McChill Block 12 Winter Time!

Good frosty morning, to you my sweet friends. 

                

Are you staying all warm and cozy. Yesterday was a whopping 60 degrees here in the holler, oh but not this morning. Rain moved through during the night and we dropped to the low 30's with  a bit of wintery mix. Oh, dear mother nature is taking us on a winter roller coaster ride. 🌞🎢❄


Can you believe it ? This is the last of the Frosty McChill blocks.


 I tell ya', I  have loved every bit of stitching and sharing this little guy. He was pretty busy too wasn't he? From sledding to skiing all the way to holding a march for more snow. 😀☃

            

I just love seeing them all together. Lol

The last block is called "Winter Time". 

Sweet ole' Frosty in his top hat. I bet some of ya'll will have him stitched up by dinner time. 


  INSTRUCTION TIME !   Now remember , I am no expert, but am just sharing how I embroider mine. Please prepare your fabric, embroider in whatever manner that  makes you happy. The number one rule is to always have FUN FUN FUN!!!  

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Cut your fabric to 8 1/2 "x 11 1/2" . This will  be trimmed later.  

2.  Place the pattern between a light box or a window and center the design as best as possible. Trace the design onto your fabric using your favorite transfer fabric pen or pencil . 

3. Embroider the design .  I used a back stitch using 2 strands of DMC 498  on most of the design. A stem stitch would look  quite lovely if you prefer.  I used 1 strand of 498 for the details in the snowman's face.   

4. On the snowflakes , I used a French Knot at the end of 4 of the points . You do not have to include the French Knot or you may want to add a teeny bead at each point . How cute would that be!!!

5. Press and trim to block size 7 1/2 x 10 1/2".

If you have missed any of the previous blocks , just click on the names and you will be transported back to the posts. 

They include: Let it Snow"  and " Sled Time , The Tree March  and "Just a Sweeping!!!" , Chasing Snowflakes" , " Learning to Ski " , Mittens for Sale ,   Blown Away ,   Snowball Hunt , The March  , and  Playtime.  

Next Thursday , I will share how I finish mine. I started working on the  piecing last night. 

Laying Frosty out. 

             

It is going to be a simple finish. Fabrics are cut, but I still need to cut out the outer borders. Then the sewing machine will be a humming. 

              

I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this Frosty journey. You certainly kept me motivated, and I have adored seeing some of ya'lls blocks. As always, thank you for the sweet visit , my sweetie pies and ...

Happy stitching, ya'll

Melisa

Winter is magic!

Warm Wishes and Snowman Kisses!!!
Hugs and Stitches!!!

  4. So cute! You're going to have a lovely quilt. I checked on the list of quilt projects on the right side and saw Frosty McGill listed. I hope to embroider these blocks sometime so it's nice to have them listed in one set. Of course I'll make bluework blocks. Happy stitching!

  9. Hi, I just love your blog. Can you tell me about the piece on the 'front' page of your blog - it says Winter and has 3 saltbox houses on it? I wasn't sure how to ask, so I hope you will see this. Thank you for sharing so many incredible ideas!

    1. Aah thank you so much, Sharon. That is Winter House Trio by Waxing Moon Designs.There are trios for every season and some of the holidays. It was such a fun piece to work on. I put each house side by side with 3 stitch spaces between. I have seen them stitched vertically too . Hope this helps. Have a wonderful weekend and happy stitching.

  14. Adorable final block. I am on block 2 and have really enjoyed embroidering again. I hadn't done it since I was about 15 years old...many moons ago. Thank you so much for offering free patterns. Yours are so adorable and it is so incredibly kind of you to offer them for free. I pretty much exclusively stitch your patterns, they are my favorites! ((Hugs))

  17. Hi Melisa, I'm not sure that my comment went through so I am repeating it. I've been sewing along with you on the Frosty blocks and have finished mine. I love them! Thanks so much for sharing all your talents with us. I look forward to opening your posts. What width are your sashing strips?
