What Difference A Border Makes!

**Update - someone commented anonymously and asked if I was going to do the embroidered borders on each block now that they are sewn together. If you mean doing the fly stitch - yes, and I think that part will go really fast compared to all of the other stitcheries!
Two posts in one day - a first for me! I sewed the borders on the snow people and just had to show you what a difference it makes in how they look! Mr. Squash held it up for me so I could get a better photo. He's been hard at work today raking leaves and cleaning up the yard from our snowstorms!

Here is a close-up of the border - a tiny red and white polka dot.
Also, don't forget to leave a comment on this post for the Whirl Into Winter giveaway!

This is the best photo I've seen of this quilt including stores who sell the pattern. I just purchased it and really wasn't sure what all the snowmen(women) were doing. Just knew I'd like it. :)

Thanks for sharing the great pics.
