Yes, and here it is for this thread. I'm not going to add the trees. I used all of my background fabric, no extra left. And I like it as is, so just borders for me.

By the way, homespuns are such a pain for a background. This one has lots of texture but also lots of fraying threads. I always cut my homespun backgrounds generously and I don't trim the block to size until I'm ready to sew them together.

I love those Jackie.  They really do pop on the homespun and I noticed how all the snowmen are wearing blue scarves - nice consistency.  I haven't worked with homespuns yet so thanks for the tip about the fraying.

Nice job Jackie!  Makes me want to get this done for next year!  I think I have saved all the blocks so with basketball trips the next 3 months, it will be an easy project to take.

Jackie and Bonita - love both of your big snowmen plus the individual additions that you each did.  I wish I had used a consistent background but did use the same red in all the letters.  I need to redo the little snowflake one and do the big snowmen and I will be ready to put it together.  Fun project.

Jackie your snowmen look wonderful on the homespun background. Fraying edges is another good reason to cut background fabric larger thqn needed. Sometimes we don't finish a quilt for several months (or years).
