Deana: One Monthly Goal - Snowman Finished!

I just barely finished the binding on my "One Monthly Goal".  I have been finishing quilting projects for others and now it feels good to finish one for me.  

This is also a 2nd Quarter Finish Along goals.  Click here to refer back to my goal setting post.  Here is a link to the finisher's linky party.

This snowman quilt was also the "draw #" from Patchwork Times list for May.  That list is helping me SO MUCH to finish things.  I have completed every one so far this year with the exception of one and I did make great progress on it.

This hand embroidered snowman quilt has been in the works for many many years.  I took it to wrestling tournaments for at least 3 years just getting the hand work done.  It is a joy to see it finished!

I also got a lot of work done on Diamond Hill.  This block only has the light green leaves left to stitch.

The next two blocks are glue basted and ready to start stitching.  I only have one more daisy flower to turn under - yay!  The hand stitching is my favorite part.

I've seen this snowman quilt pattern before and I continue to be fascinated by it. Your version is so lovely! What an accomplishment to get it finished. Such a work of love. And you've got three more blocks in various stages for Diamond Hill! Wow, you've gotten so much done this week. Love, love these Diamond Hill blocks--the colors and the pattern. I especially love that background and how it shows off your flowers. Thank you so much for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss!

I love your finish! Did you quilt it yourself - I love the loopy snowflake quilting! Now that I think of it, I have this UFO on my 2018 list, but mine is in red! Awesome finish, love it!
