Frosty & Friends Friday Finish

Here's my little holiday quilt that I finished. 

This is a pattern by Debbie Mumm.  It is in a book from 1992 called Quick Country Quilting.  You can see it on Amazon here.  You may want to check your local library too.  Our county library had a copy!  The checkered border was really easy because I used my GO! Baby and my strip cutter.  Accuracy was really important in these strip pieces.

Update:  Thanks to Carol's comment, Carol let us know that we can also get the pattern on Debbie Mumm's site FREE here.

If you didn't see my WIP Wednesday post this week, you can see that I had a little help from our Elf on the Shelf, Chippy.

I quilted it quickly with my go-to pattern, Circle Lord Swirls.  I was hoping that the swirls weren't too big for the snowmen.  I just looks like a really windy day and gives the quilt motion.  I backed it with a simple holiday fabric from JoAnn Fabrics and added a hanging sleeve.  This is the first hanging sleeve that I have done.  It was really easy and there are a lot of simple tutorials out there.  I used this video tutorial.

I'm happy to link up with Richard and Tanya Quilts for the Link-A-Finish FRIDAY.
