Time for snowmen

The Christmas decorations are down, and the snowman decorations are up. The snow is just about gone with our crummy midwinter heat wave. Today it got to 46° for heavens sake! What is WITH that? I want the snow back!
This is my little biscuit quilt snowman. He was so much fun when I made him years ago that I'm not sure why I haven't made more biscuit quilts~

I want to do a snowman tablerunner, I have a neat design idea in my head but I am resisting because I really need to finish some projects instead of starting more. Story of my life!

So, here is my number one priority project. The quilt for the little boy at Vanessa's school. This is my tentative layout. I didn't realize I had done so many with the orange and yellow print! To me they just jumped out. Might be because I'm not really crazy about orange. Still, it's pretty bright and cheerful. Just what we need here in my neck of the woods with all the fog, drizzle, and gray dreary days we are getting. I'm thinking it's going to need a nice frame, maybe a Kelly green? Then I could do some 4 patch cornerstones. Now to get it together before my cat rearranges my set up!

I love your snowman and the boys' quilt is really pretty.

A biscuit pattern seems like the perfect way to make a snowman quilt. He's adorable.

Mare, I love the biscuit quilt and the layout you've chosen for the other one. I have never seen a biscuit quilt before - how do you make that? I think it looks so cute!
