Snowman quilt blocks

I can finally share with you one of my quilt bee Christmas exchange projects I've been working on.
With this bee we all make 6 of the same snowman quilt block, at our party we exchange them and end up with 6 different blocks. This is our second year and planning to do it again next year.
This was my block I made. I saw the idea on Pinterest there was no pattern, I'm not sure who to give credit to. I appliqued on the heads and hats, then hand embroidered in the branches and berries.

Laura made this cute pieced snowman head.
I photographed them on my "snow" tree skirt, they lay a lot flatter.

Joni made this wonderful guy with a paper-pieced tree.

Cathy hand embroidered this guy.
Two of my friends weren't able to exchanged their blocks, next month.

These are the blocks laid (on my carpet) out. I made a few extra for my quilt.
Another couple of years and we'll all have a nice size friendship quilt.
Tonight is my next bee Christmas party with a totally different exchange, I'll share that with you next week.
I hope you have a beautiful Holiday season.
