Snowman Quilting

Baby Quilt showing the many ways to hand applique.

Easy Street, sewing strips to make  16 Blocks.

Hand Quilting the Snowman Quilt. Tools of the trade are Clover Chalk Wheel, #5 mechanical pencil, ruler and scissors. The side is over half way quilted.

I paid $20 three years ago for this Qsnap frame. I now know why this person never used it. Those half rounds are very hard and almost impossible to snap around the frame. To protect the embroidery I used a thin muslin on top of the quilt before getting them to snap on. Because these are hard to add I most likely will not use it again.

I never understood why Qsnaps were ever for quilters for the same reason you've found. They're great for cross-stitch, embroidery, etc on single thickness fabric that doesn't need to get snapped under those half rounds, however!

Found you on SewManyWays!

Thank you for visiting my blog!! Thoes Qsnaps are a pain but I wanted to finish this quilt with a wide border. It is the only thing I had. I did see somewhere how to make a quick, easy and not expensive frame to make. I just might invest in some lumber and do it. However, most of my quilting is done in a square 14 inch hoop.


Hello Linda, I have those snaps ones too. I have rarely used them.. Your snowman quilt is just about done. Hugs Judy
