My Christmas Quilt

I've always wanted to  make a special Christmas quilt, but just never seemed to get around to actually doing it.
the last time we went to the quilt show in columbus, i saw a really cute quilt i really liked.
called hubs over to see it, and he really liked it too.
it was a kit, and i really never buy kits, because they're usually too pricey for my budget.
it wasn't way too expensive, but just more than i normally spend at one time!
since he really liked it, though, hubby thought i should go ahead and get it, BUT he said i had to finish it for "THIS CHRISTMAS"!!
haha, he knows me too well!!
well. that was in 2010, and it did indeed get finished for THAT christmas! 
i just love it!
we decorate a lot with snowmen, so it fit right in!
