The snowman from our Toyland Block Set has multiplied! With his family and friends, he’s living the soft life in Snowville. This pattern is 11″ wide with no repeats. It has 4 panels of 3′ each, and includes the following designs: Singing Carols, Ice Skating, “Oops, careful”, Snow Dog, Snow Baby, Toasting Marshmallows, Family Portrait, Slipping and Spills, and the risk of melting with the wintry sun overhead.
Isn’t this a fun quilt by Helen Baczynski. See how she painted one of the snowmen!
I had fun writing a little poem and designing a “Mock” quilt for the Silly Snowmen in my life. See the tutorial here at “Snowmen are so Silly.” In the free download are directions for the SNOWFLAKE BLOCK shown.
Also, Silly snowmen are featured in one of the layouts from “Star Quilt Fantasy.”
This pattern is 11″ wide & 12′ long with no repeats.
The distinctive feature of a Pictogram is that it’s a pantograph with NO repeats. It’s a complete 12′ roll comprised of 4 panels of 3′ each, all “hooked” together. I’ve added a dotted line at each 36″ section. While they can be stacked up as shown in the picture, they can also be quilted like an E2E or B2B giving lots of pictorial subject matter to your quilt.
To avoid placing an animal or image on top of itself all the way down the quilt I recommend starting at a different 36″ division for each “pass.” After starting, continue quilting through as many sections as needed for that row. You won’t have to stop – the line is continuous. For a full sized quilt I might make 7-8 rows, starting at various sections of the panto.
For alignment help see the “Tips” section.
Elizabeth Ronholm –
I’ve never been to your site before. I am sorry I haven’t because you have some great patterns and pantographs. I admit I came here to sign up for the pantograph giveaway, but I’m definitely coming back to get some of those snowmen pantos. I’ve been looking for something like that for awhile now and never found what I was looking for, but your set of Silly Snowmen is just what I need. Thanks for the giveaway which led me to your website.
