Snowman "It's a Wonderful Life" Quilt

Inspired by the classic Christmas season movie "It's a Wonderful Life," this handmade Snowman 'It's a Wonderful Life" Quilt tells a different story.

Pieced by Laura Cook and machine quilted by Rose Hamer, both with Gone to Pieces Quilt Guild, St. Robert, Missouri, this is an artistic quilt rendition of Kathi Crawford's life "as told by my Mom." There's a little bit of everything in this quilt from applique and patchwork to embroidery and collages.

Now snowmen quilts I have seen are throwing snowballs, singing carols and, well, melting - not parachuting out of airplanes and riding motorcyles:

Yes, in this custom-made quilt the snowman - or should I saw snowwoman, is parachuting!

All in all, it is a pretty wonderful life, don't you think?
