Cut your 7" background square. 

Cut a 1" wide strip and 
prepare it for the scarf:)

Trace your pieces onto the interfacing.
You may choose to trace your B-13 piece
 with one in reverse like I did for this block...

Or trace them both the same
 like I did for my snowman pillow.

Turn...shape...and press!

I show all of these steps in the

My house fills up with snowmen collections come Christmas decorating time - so this is an extra special block! Also as I 'touch' each Cozy Christmas fabric piece to make this quilt - I'm also cutting and sewing on your 'Town Square Quilt' from your Quilty Fun Book. I always wanted to make this one too!
