Prepare Handle and Applique Hanger

Prepare Handle
1. Fold a 1/4" to 1/2" pleat in ends of each cranberry print E piece so they are the same width as the centers. Stay-stitch pleats just inside raw edges.

2. Layer two cranberry print E pieces; sew together along both long edges. Turn handle right side out and press.

Applique Hanger
1. Referring to Applique Placement Diagram, arrange snowman body and nose on applique foundation. Thread blue homespun 1/2x7" strip under snowman body and tie in front. Fuse appliques in place. Using black thread, hand- or machine-blanket-stitch around snowman body.

2. Arrange hat and star appliques on snowman; baste. Use monofilament thread and a blind-hem stitch or tiny zigzag to machine-stitch around appliques. On back side of hat and star, trim away excess quilt top fabric, leaving 1/4" seam allowance. Gently peel freezer paper away from fabric.
