Buttermilk Basin Free BOM 2016

I finished the first block for Buttermilk Basin's newest free wool Block of the Month just in time for a light coating of snow last night.  We are not supposed to get much, just an inch or two...this winter has been pretty wimpy but it makes my heart happy that we haven't struggled with driveway clearing this year so I'll take it!

Yesterday's mail brought me a happy fabric package from my friend Colette to whom I must have whined a little too loudly that I had wished I had known about this fabric when yardage was available.  
I used a piece from a fat eighth bundle recently purchased for my toad mouth for Amy's In Our Garden QAL.  The quotes are amazing but Colette, you shouldn't have!  Thank you  :)

Love the snowman! I've printed the pattern but not tried to assemble anything yet.

Your snowman is cute. We got a couple of inches, which is more than they were saying. I was more than happy to share my fabric with you. I know you will use it.

I love you little Snowman block!
I really like your background fabric.
Your button and embroidery embellishments are just darling.

That is so sweet of Colette to send you the fabric. Love that snowman, Kris! He is probably the most adorable snowman I have ever seen. Oh and I love your wool appliqué :)
