Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

My First Schnibbles

I have been working frantically the past day and a half to make a Schnibbles - Sunday Best. I bought the pattern and the charm packs on Wednesday on a shopping expedition with Terry. The only thing is that I didn't even plan on 1) using this fabric with this pattern, and 2) making this Schnibbles any time soon.

So, completely unplanned, totally spontaneous, I present my Sunday Best, made with 2 charm packs of Barbara Brackman's Civil War Homefront of Moda.
Unknown as to when this will get quilted. I someday think I will own a longarm, but until then I will add this to my growing stack of quilt tops.

I love this! If it's okay, I'll put it on my parade! I am torn also between continuing to have my quilts quilted...or save them for when I get a longarm! Have a great day!

It is certainly okay with me, Sherri, to add my Sunday Best to the parade...:-)

Thanks, Kathie, I do love to hand quilt, and that actually is more of a possibility than you know!

It looks terrific!! The colors are beautiful! It is okay to have just tops. I own a long arm and have tons of tops to be quilted. I have to do customer's tops first, then squeeze my own on the machine in between. It will look beautiful when it gets quilted, I am sure!

Your Sunday Best is beautiful! I LOVE the fabric you used. But I am partial to Civil War fabrics anyway. Great job!
