little snowman - almost done!

Do you remember my little snowman wip? I am now done with the stitching:I started this stitching not really knowing what I was going to do with the finished product - I knew I loved this pale blue fabric and wanted it for my background. I love red and light blue together and I think the brown and white just finish this off. I have a lot more of this light blue fabric and also quite a bit of this beautiful red fabric:I am thinking I could maybe make this into a quilt square? I don't really know anything about quilting - I have only ever made one and that was just sewing 4" x 4" squares together and then putting a backing on it. I have been calling this little image snow baby because he is so little compared to the rest of the snowmen I am planning on stitching: Maybe I could do some quilt squares featuring all of them?

Kim,
That looks a lot like the blue flannel I got at Joann's this weekend. I'm inspired! What about making it into a pillow with the red fabric as the back?
