I’m once again honored to be part of another volume of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks!
My block, Frosty is #1150.
He is pieced & then his face & scarf are applique.
He’ll make a great after Christmas project when the snow starts flying.
By the way,
fabric snowmen are the only ones I truly love.
If I could move to a sunny & warm climate 365 days a year I’d be happy!
With Frosty here though, I can stay where it’s warm & sew him all day.
How cute he would be at opposite ends of a runner for your winter table.
You would have space in the middle to put a pretty bowl of snowballs (real or the cookie kind)!
Mini Chip Snowball Cookies (very Best Baking by NESTLÉ)
- 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
- Powdered sugar
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour; stir in morsels and nuts. Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned. Remove from oven. Sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired. Store in airtight containers. Yields 5 dozen cookies
But don’t limit your sewing creativity to one of my ideas…

I love to make Christmas gifts, so I have to say Christmas.
I really like Frosty. I think I like Spring the best these days. I hate being cold. I’m old.
I love your runner and the snowball cookies are a perfect centerpiece. What a great idea!
Any holiday is a good excuse to sew something new. However, I am partial to any of the patriotic holidays. After being stationed in Korea for 16 months, I have a new appreciation for our freedom and privileges and don’t ever plan to take them for granted. kathleen(dot)lutz(at)comcast(dot)net
I don’t have a favorite season but I do think your cookie recipe sounds scrumsous .
I like your Tiny Dresden series patterns. Thanks for a chance to win,
patd at yahoo dot com
Fall is my favorite season. And you summer play pattern
The cookies look great and I love your Snowman too. They match…
Don’t have a favorite season to sew for but I do more piecing in the summer and quilting in the winter.
I love giving at Christmas, especially handmade. Thanks for the recipe.
Your pattern Pretty Table, I would love to win.
Garden Romance is my favorite.
Your table runner is a cheerful holiday touch. I can see an arrangement of holly on it as a calorie free alternative to the scrumptious cookies. The holiday that I most like to sew for is Halloween. And I like your “A Pretty Table” pattern for this time of year, or for birthdays.
My niece just loves snowman . We made 24 snowman placemats.
My favorite season for sewing is winter–there just never seems to be enough time to get it all done! Happy Thanksgiving!
I like them all, but my favorite would be the tiny dresden series-one for every month!
Fall is my favorite season to make quilts for, and my favorite quilt is my Modern Maple.
Such a cute snowman! Melts my heart! I love your tiny dresden patterns very much. Especially summers end, the september pattern.
My favorite season is the fall to sew with those warm days and very cool nights.
I like to change my wall hangings & tablerunners every season. It is hard to pick a favorite. Your snowman tablerunner will definitely be on my list of things to make soon.
I love to make Christmas gifts. The mini Happy Birthday quilt is so cute!
I like to sew in the winter. Love Frosty and the cookies too!
All your Christmas patterns are great but my favorite is your “faith, hope, love” quilt pattern. thanks for sharing and a chance to win.
Love your Frosty block. I’ve been making snowman themed blocks for the holidays and now I have another block to make. I spend winters quilting.

I think that winter is my favorite season to quilt for. I love Christmas fabrics. Along with that, my favorite of your patterns is Frosty.
I just like quilting, regardless of the season. Your snowman is so cute and does not scream Christmas — makes it usable for all winter.
My favorite season to sew for is Winter! BTW, I moved from upstate NY to Florida, and I hatae it — I really miss the change of seasons, seeing the leaves change, and waiting for the first beautiful snowfall.
My favorite pattern is Dresden Heaven!
I try to quilt each day. I really don’t have a favorite season for quilting. I really like your Summer Blooms pattern, very unique and cute. Thanks.

I sew all year round but I do love fall colors and have made several quilts table toppers and runners for Fall decorating.
While I do like sewing holiday themed projects, my favorite season for sewing is “gift giving season”. That could be any time of the year when there is an occasion to give a gift!

It is hard to pick from your many wonderful patterns! I really like your Simplify quilt and table runner pattern.

I love snowmen, your Frosty is super cute.
I seem to have more time to sew in the Winter as I’m not out in the yard doing yard work and gardening chores. :-) I adore snowmen and am happy to see that at least one is in the magazine! Congrats!
I don’t have a favourite season to sew for, I tend to make things that can be used all year.
Once again, you did not disappoint!!! Super cute!!! Favorite season to sew for is Christmas. Although birthdays in our family are perfectly spaced out, but I love the cooler weather for the heavier quilts… if you find some cooler weather by the way, send it to Maryland. It’s like early Sept out there. Love the Desden Heaven pattern on your website. That’s definitely one to make when there is a chill in the air. Congrats on your cutie patutie block!!!
I love to make things for Christmas and do so all year long! I do love Frosty!

I love to sew in the winter but I have two days of the year that are all out sewing-fest days – the day after Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Phones, kids, hubby’s, fur-babies – no one is allowed to disturb my peace when I’m piecing on these days.
Love them all, snowmen pumpkins UT really love 4th of July

I think winter is the best season to sew for!
I like the Tiny Dresden August pattern the best!

I have more fall items, but Christmas is a close second for sewing projects.
My favorite season to quilt is all seasons – I really don’t have any one season that is a favorite as I love to quilt year round. I like your Dresden Heaven pattern.

I’ve made lots of Christmas table toppers and runners, but I like making Halloween related quilts/wall hangings the best. I love sampler quilts, your My Happy Place pattern mays my heart go pitter-patter.
I love to sew in the fall and the winter – the fall colors inspire me and in the winter it’s a comfort feeling. I love that you combine piecing and applique, your garden quilt is wonderful.

Congratulations on being in Quiltmaker’s 100, Vol. 12.
Fingers crossed I’m a winner of one of your patterns, I’d pick Garden Romance.
My favorite season to sew for is winter, which is a good thing, since it is rainy and dreary here with a lot of indoor time for quilting.

I like to sew for winter and Christmas. I decorate with snowmen for Christmas so that I can leave them out longer. So a snowman block is just my style! I like your Thistle jacket pattern. Thanks for the giveaways.
I love your snowman block on the table runner!!! I love sewing for both FALL and for Christmas.
Your Freedom Basket caught my eye because our family celebrates the Fourth in a really big way. It would be terrific to add to the usual decorations.
It’ easier to say I am not a fan of hot, so the cooler times of the year are fine with me, Kathy in colo
I enjoy summer sewing. I Make garments also so love using summer fabrics to make sundresses and other cute things to wear x

You have some very cute patterns. Frosty #215 would be fun to win. I forgot to say in my comment above that I really don’t have a favorite season to sew for as I sew/quilt for gift giving all year long. firstname.lastname@example.org
Frosty is so cute! Will definitely have to make a few table runners for gifts this year. Love your stocking pattern too. I enjoy seeing when the weather is cooler. Here in AZ, that isn’t too long. Lol Those snowball cookies look yummy! Hugs rustyquilts9 at gmail dot com
